18

These carrot-cake cupcakes are infused with blueberries, an uncommon, yet delicious combination, and swirled with a whipped cream cheese frosting! They're a healthier version as well, with applesauce standing in for the oil, and doing a great job, if I may say.

1/2 cup applesauce
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
