Officially, the first day of summer is a few days away.  Unofficially, I’m already there.  

To celebrate the beginning of my favorite season and the upcoming Minions movie, I decided to bake some mango peach cupcakes.  Since M is for Mott’s, Minions, and Mangos, I figured we’d go outside the banana box today! For even more delicious cupcake options, see my 17 best cupcake recipes

Use Applesauce Instead of Oil!

I normally use applesauce instead of oil when baking, so I was thrilled to find Mott’s Mango Peach Applesauce at my local Food Lion.  I couldn’t help but smile when I saw the limited-time-only Minions packaging and can hardly wait for the new movie from Universal (in theaters July 10th).

Mott’s Applesauce

Mott’s Applesauce is gluten-free and an excellent source of vitamin C.  When using Mott’s Applesauce for baking, always use equal amounts (1/2 cup of oil = 1/2 cup of applesauce.)

After the cupcakes have cooled completely, frost, add eyes and draw goggle straps.  Wasn’t that easy?

Best Ever Cupcakes

My son said these were the best cupcakes he had ever eaten.  The applesauce gives the frosting a subtle mango/peach flavor and melds deliciously with the cream cheese.  And he immediately knew they were Minion inspired.
