We used applesauce, vanilla bean and Betty Crocker White cake mix to make our reduced-calorie Skinny Vanilla Bean Cupcakes.

Brooke McLay Recipe by Brooke McLay

Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ white cake mix
1/2
cup applesauce
1
cup water
1
tablespoon canola oil
1
vanilla bean, seeds scraped from bean
1
container (8 oz) Cool Whip™ fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed
3
cups powdered sugar
1
pint (2 cups) fresh blueberries, if desired
24
fresh mint leaves, if desired

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Place paper cupcake wrapper or baking cup in each of 24 regular-size muffin cups.
  • 2 In large bowl, beat cake mix, applesauce, water and oil with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add half of the vanilla bean seeds to batter; stir until mixed. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  • 3 Bake 17 to 19 minutes or just until cupcakes spring back when lightly touched in center. Cool cupcakes in pans 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups to cooling racks. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4 In large bowl, mix whipped topping, powdered sugar and remaining half of vanilla bean seeds. Spoon over top of each cupcake. Garnish each with berries and mint.

Expert Tips

Add a kiss of flavor to these cupcakes by tossing in a teaspoon of orange, almond or butter-flavor extract in place of the vanilla bean seeds.

To cut back on the calories per serving even more, bake the batter in mini muffin cups for 10 to 12 minutes. Top with frosting for teeny one-bite wonders that taste one-bite wonderful!
