I must confess that I kind of violated the single lady cupcake code of honor. First of all, I made two of these. Second of all, one of them was for a man. And we shared it. Because I wanted the other one for breakfast. I’m a single lady cupcake fake. It feels good to share.
Anyway, whether you make one or one dozen of these babies, I think you’ll be happy with the result. They come together in 60 seconds, bake for 15 and are inhaled instantly.
I topped mine with a simple combination of coconut butter and homemade strawberry jam. (I could eat that alone with a spoon all.day.long.) Then I added blueberries for flair.
You can find Katie’s original single lady cupcake recipe here. I went with the applesauce option and added walnuts.
Since I went with the fat-free option (applesauce instead of oil in the cupcake) these are definitely best hot out of the oven. Fat-free baked goods tend to set up a little tough and dry after a day. HOWEVER, I’m eating the other one for breakfast as we speak and it’s pretty damn amazing. So there’s that.
