- 1 cup (2 single serving cups) Mott’s Apple Sauce
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder

- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 tsp Mott’s Apple Juice
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Spoon into cupcake liners.
- Bake at 350 degrees until top of cupcakes is lightly browned.
I made some yummy apple cakes using Mott’s apple juice and applesauce. These cakes are super moist and have a great apple flavor. They’re not a traditional cake texture-they’re more like a fritter. I decorated my cakes like Minions, but these would also be totally delicious with a cinnamon flavored glaze!
Black decorating gel and candy eyes are all that you need for easy peasy minions.
To get a smooth frosting coat, just microwave your frosting for a few seconds-usually no more than 30. If you made a traditional cupcake you can just dip them in the frosting and you’ll get that smooth, fondant-like look. These cupcakes are dense and didn’t rise above the edge of the wrapper. I just spooned on the frosting and gave each cupcake a tap to smooth it out.
To create your Minion faces, just use candy eyes and a decorating gel. It’s super easy…promise. If you can draw a smiley face, you can make a Minion.
Speaking of easy, I made some really quick Minion applesauce packs with my leftover Mott’s packs. Just take a large googly eye. If you have a silver metalic pen you can draw around the edge. If not, just consider the silver edging optional.
Add a stripe of black electrical tape to the back of your Mott’s Applesauce container. Use a glue dot to attach the eye. Instant Minion!
