Today, I entered Better Homes and Gardens ‘Mad For Plaid’ recipe contest. I adapted this Apple Oatmeal Cupcake recipe from their Red Plaid cookbook that I received when I was in high school. I’ve used the book so much the pages are stained, and have actually started falling out of it.
I modified their original recipe of Applesauce Spice Cake by using real, fresh grated apple instead of applesauce. I also altered and eliminated a few other ingredients as well. I opted to top them with an oatmeal, brown sugar and cinnamon topping to avoid a sweet sugary frosting.
You can view my recipe at the link below. If you’re so inclined you can also vote for contestants, or create your own entry. Go ahead – give it a try! What do you have to lose?
