Grandma's Applesauce Cupcakes with Ermine Buttercream

Grandma’s Applesauce Cupcakes

From my Grandma, who was born in 1897 - the BEST applesauce cupcakes!

Do you have old family recipes that just take you back to childhood? Maybe it’s a photo, maybe it’s the first whiff of them baking in the oven, or maybe it’s that first bite? This is one of those for me…my Grandma Irene’s Applesauce Cupcakes. I’d guess these date back to the 1930’s, at least.

Black Bottom Cupcakes

I thought these homely but absolutely delicious cupcakes had fallen out of fashion – until I googled them! Still, I think they deserve a place on my blog – absolutely moist, delicious and chocolaty, the cream cheese layer sets them off beautifully. One of my favorite cupcakes, I’ll always pick these if I see them at a picnic or a potluck, even over any beautiful, fancy cupcake. They’re heavy in the hand and bursting with flavor!
