Instructions

Cupcakes

  1. Adjust an oven rack to middle position and set the oven to 325 degrees F. Fill cupcake tin with liners and set aside. 
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves together. In a large mixing bowl, whisk applesauce, sugar, melted butter, cider, eggs and vanilla together. Stir the flour mixture into the applesauce mixture until just combined and no white streaks remain. Fill cupcake liners 3/4 full with batter and bake for 25 minutes. Let cool completely before frosting.
