Applesauce-Spice Cupcakes [bonus msc]

These were made along with the Sweet Potato Cupcakes for the Kiwanis Family Thanksgiving dinner that were made to us by the Berkeley Kiwanians. All we had to do was bring appetizers and drinks, but being me, I asked for permission to bring desserts.

Turkey, Stuffing, and mac 'n cheese was my dinner. Although dinner was amazing, I think I stuffed myself with the appetizers of various things - chips, carrot sticks, etc. It was super delicious and super fun to be able to hang out with the Kiwanians. I think I spent a lot of my time playing Jenga with one of the Kiwanians. I remember during Fall Training Conference, I had gone downstairs where the advisors social was and they were playing Jenga - the intense version. Apparently they are very serious about their Jenga!

Onto these cupcakes, I feel like they were pretty good although pretty muffin like again. I feel like many of Martha Stewarts cupcakes are actually muffins in disguise. The cream cheese frosting was good, but it had not set in time for the dinner so I used it as a glaze. Perhaps they would be better if I had give sometime to rest and cool in the fridge.

This recipe was from the Martha Stewart Cupcakes book - page 55.


  1. They look terrific Nina! I think the consensus today has been that these "cupcakes" were much more like muffins :) I thought they were tasty but not my favorite MS recipe.

  2. Good job! I gave them two thumbs up. But I like nuts and the frosting was delish!

  3. Cute picture, and I definitely agree with you on the fact that these were more muffin like than cake like.

  4. do you post recipes for any of these?

  5. I agree with you here! It was too muffin like and I wasn't a fan.

    I think my favorite recipe so far has been the Pumpkin Patch.

    Thanks so much for baking the bonus round!


Thanks for your comments!
