Sticky Apple Pudding Cupcakes

With the thick blankets of clouds that rest on the towering mountains outside my kitchen window, the days have been getting progressively colder and colder. Today was a day just like that. It was bitterly chilly outside, so I spent the day sipping hot peppermint tea and baking.

I was sent some coupons from Foodbuzz and Duncan Hines in order to create something that “defies traditional”, so I attempted to do just that. These spicy little cakes are delicate, almost pudding-like in consistency and vegan!

Sticky Apple Pudding Cupcakes

Serves 25-30 mini-cupcakes
Prep time 15 minutes
Cook time 25 minutes
Total time 40 minutes
Dietary Vegan, Vegetarian
Meal type Dessert
Delicate miniature vegan cupcakes are stuffed with sweet apple pie filling, giving them a consistency of sticky pudding.

Ingredients

  • 1 box Duncan Hines carrot cake or spice cake mix
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened apple sauce
  • 3/4 cups water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Comstock apple pie filling

Directions

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Step 2
In a large bowl mix together the cake mix, applesauce, water and vegetable oil and stir until just combined.
Step 3
Take the 1/2 cup of apple pie filling, dice and stir into the batter.
Step 4
Pour the batter into greased mini-cupcake tins, filling 2/3 of the way.
Step 5
Bake 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out relatively clean.

I used the carrot cake mix but left out the pack of dehydrated carrots and raisins.
The applesauce is used as an egg substitute. 1/4 cup of applesauce = 1 egg.
Make sure you include the sugary syrup part after you dice the apple pie filling!
This batter appears thick, but it liquefies pretty quickly.
Fill the cupcake tins 2/3 full. These babies blow up!
While you wait for them to bake the 20-25 minutes, you can lick the spatula clean, thanks the the veganosity!
The consistency of these will make you keel over with happiness. I recommend smothering them with frosting and eating them with a spoon.
If you’re looking for something to whip together that’s ridiculously quick and easy, go for these!
Sweater and boots weather + sticky apple pudding cupcakes. HAPPY DANCE!
