Caramel Apple Vegan Cupcakes

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups flour

1/4 cup vegan sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/4 cups unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup vegan margarine (80% fat is best)

1 teaspoon vanilla

Filling Ingredients

see Caramel Frosting Recipe

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. Gather all ingredients and supplies. Line cupcake tins with paper cupcake liners. In large mixing bowl, sift dry ingredients. In small mixing bowl, mix wet ingredients. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients bowl and mix until all dry ingredients are wet and there are no lumps. Do not over-mix. Fill cupcake liners 1/3 full then add a drop of caramel frosting (see caramel frosting recipe). Then cover top with additional batter. Do not over-fill or the cupcakes will rise too high and the tops will combine with the other tops. Bake 15-20+ minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Keep watching the oven after 15 minutes. Don’t open the door too often. Let cool another 20 minutes, then add icing.

Perfect with Caramel Apple Frosting.
