Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes

Ready in 45 minutes

Applesauce adds moisture and replaces fat in these rich-tasting chocolate cupcakes. Double the recipe and freeze the extras.

"I made these with 1/2 cup raspberry apple sauce and 1/2 cup pomegranate apple sauce. I skipped the chips. Still satisfied the chocolate craving in the house. I topped them with a cream cheese frosting."

Cupcakes came out dense and not moist at all. Batter wasn't too bad though.

The sugar and egg white is what gives it most of it's structure, so it gets drier when it's cool.

I must have made it wrong, or this recipe is bad. After creating a batch 2 times i found that they were not moist at all, They tasted OK. But im not sure why they werent moist.

I thought the flavor a little strong, but that very well may have been due to the amount of chocolate chips I used. It was not quite as moist as I had been hoping.
