Apple Spice Mini Bundt Cakes



Ingredients:
3 apples*, cubed
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon allspice
1 tablespoon cloves
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
25 ounces unsweetened applesauce


Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, cornstarch, allspice, cloves, salt, cinnamon, baking powder and apples. Add applesauce and mix until thoroughly combined. Pour into lined or buttered and floured cupcake pans. Will make about 12 cupcakes or 6 mini bundt cakes. Bake 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack, removing from pan 5 minutes, then serve.

* I used Ginger Gold apples, but any apple suitable for baking would do.

My thoughts:
You wouldn't know it from the taste but they are actually quite healthy!In addition to being vegan, these cupcakes are also fat free. We have been invited to a party this evening with an all vegan menu so I made these to take with me. I was pleased with how well they turned out, moist, spicy and very full of apple flavor. My first truly "Autumn" dish of the year.
