Today’s recipe is one of my favorites and it all happened because of an unfortunate mistake. We’ll get to that fun story in just a minute. First, let me tell you about my Fluffy White Cupcakes with Strawberry Filling. These cupcakes are definitely a special occasion treat. There are a few extra steps to create these soft, delicate cupcakes and their sweet fruity filling. Not to mention the creamy, slightly tangy cream cheese frosting. But it’s all worth it, I promise!
Today I want to share with you a recipe that I hold close. My Applesauce Cupcakes with Browned Butter Frosting is an adaptation from a recipe that my grandmother shared with me years ago. She frequently made an applesauce sheet cake with a browned butter icing when I was a child. While I love the recipe as is, I decided to try it out as a cupcake with fluffy buttercream frosting. Try these cupcakes for your next picnic or potluck, they make a great serve-yourself dessert. I like to think of this recipe as an alternative to an apple pie, with no slicing needed!
