Vanilla Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

May/June 2010

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (106 votes)

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.

More like a huge muffin

Made these yesterday, and they baked up beautifully, nice, high, domed tops, however, they seem way too large for a cupcake. The texture was good... for a muffin, not at all cake-like. The frosting as made was not good, until I whipped in 3 tablespoons of butter. Thad addition made the frosting one of the best I've ever tasted, like milk chocolate frosting.

Very filling

kids love it

Great recipe! Me and my kids did this for snack and my kids asked for us to make some more! We used to have the Banana Fritters we found on GourmetRecipe.com but it's nice to try new things. I often check it out for recipes and cooking information including this website, KraftRecipes.com, LearnAboutPizza.com, AboutPeas.com, Gourmandia.ca for different moods and occasions. Thanks for this appetizing recipe!
