Let me begin with saying that about 75% of the time, I like to cook healthy. However, these cupcakes have almost nothing healthy except for the apple sauce-butter subbing.

This past weekend I was one of 7 bridesmaids throwing a bridal shower for a girl who’s been one of my best friends since I was in 9th grade.

The night before I decided to make some mini cupcakes BUT because I couldn’t Instagram them, I neglected to take good pictures. That said, a twitter friend, @wallytee requested the recipe and to my best recollection abilities, (I have a bad habit of cooking/baking sans recipe) here it is:

Cupcakes:
1 1/4 cups of flour
1 1/8 tsp of cinnamon
1/2 tsp of nutmeg
1/2 stick butter
1 little applesauce
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp of salt
1 tsp of vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of milk

Chocolate mousse:
1 cup heavy cream
Baking chocolate to taste
Sugar to taste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.
Combine dry ingredients in one bowl.
In separate bowl beat eggs until they’re fluffy.
Add dry ingredients to eggs slowly, mixing well.
Combine butter, applesauce & milk vanilla in other bowl.
Combine all and again mix all really well.

Place in muffin tin with cupcake liners. Bake for 15-20 minutes (do the toothpick test).

While they’re baking add 1 cup of heavy cream + baking chocolate powder to taste & beat on high until it’s very light & fluffy. Let sit in fridge for 20-30 min.

Let cupcakes cool, add chocolate mousse to taste.

PS- to make adding the chocolate mousse easy, I poured it into a large zip lock bag before putting it in the fridge. Then for icing I cut the tip off the bag & iced.

Voila! done!
