Apple Cupcakes

Apple Cupcakes
Adapated from Baked Bree with omitted decorating instructions that would have looked much better than what I made.

Cupcake ingredients
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
2 sticks butter at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/2 cups brown sugar
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups applesauce
1 cup toasted pecans, chopped

Frosting ingredients
1 stick room temperature cream cheese
1 stick room temperature butter
1 cup brown sugar
Sprinkle of cinnamon
2 cups confectioner's sugar
(optional) Red sugar sprinkles

Cupcake directions
Preheat oven to 350F.

Cream together both sugars with the butter until light and fluffy. Put the dry ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Add the eggs one at a time. Add the applesauce. Mix it all together.

Add in the dry ingredients. Fold in the nuts by hand. Put the cupcake batter into lined muffin tins. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool for at least an hour before frosting.

Frosting directions
Beat the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Add the brown sugar and beat until combined. Add the cinnamon, and the confectioner's sugar. Frost each cupcake as you like, and decorate with red sugar sprinkles.
