Test Kitchen Secrets: How to Bake a Healthier Cupcake (Page 5)

Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

What Stacy Likes: These vanilla–infused cupcakes are made with applesauce as a fat–replacer for butter that’s traditionally part of vanilla cake batter. Thickened evaporated milk works as a great base for the rich and creamy chocolate frosting. Dark chocolate lovers, be sure to use bittersweet chocolate.

What Sawyer Likes: The frosting, the sprinkles and the yummy vanilla cake.
