Carrot apple-sauce cupcakes

For one of my friends baby first birthday party,  I wanted to make some healthy cupcakes. My idea of making these cupcakes was to use the readily available and simple ingredients that babies or kids like to eat. I used this Recipezaar recipe, with a few omissions, to make these carrot cupcakes. I used apple sauce instead of oil and using apple sause will definitely cut your calories to half. I used Betty Crocker vanilla frosting.

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups shredded carrots
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 11/2 cup apple sauce or canola oil (1 cup)
  • 1 8-ounce can of crushed pineapples
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


Before you start the recipe, preheat your oven.  These cupcakes will bake at 350°F.
Shred two cups( 3 medium sized) of fresh, raw carrots.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
Well combine together and add 1 cup of sugar.
Then add applesauce (or oil), eggs, and vanilla.
When you mix all together the batter should like thick brown.
Then add chredded carrots and 1/3 rd can of crushed pineapple chunks(well drained).
Baked in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes until they turn brown.
With this recipe I think you can make about 16 to 20 pancakes.
