Chocolate Pumpkin Applesauce Muffins or Cupcakes
- 1 Spice Cake mix
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 cup chunky, homemade applesauce (I use my crock pot applesauce)
- 1 can pumpkin – not pumpkin pie
- 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
- 1 tsp. Black walnut flavoring
Makes 12 -14 cupcakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin tins with cupcake liners or spray with cooking spray
Mix cake mix and cocoa and add the other ingredients as listed. Stir until well mixed. You don't have to beat. Fill cupcake liners or muffin tin cups 2/3 full and bake until top springs back when lightly touched – about 20 – 25 min. This is a dense dough so you can fill your muffin tin cups to the top. Remove from muffin tins and let cool on rack.
Hope you will try this recipe and enjoy.
