Pink Lemonade Confetti Cupcakes

This delish recipe came from Skinny Taste.
You will need:
18.25 oz box confetti cake mix
2 1/2 tsp powdered sugar-free pink lemonade mix
1 cup water
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
lemon zest from half of a lemon
2 drops pink food coloring (optional)
confetti sprinkles (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.  Line cupcake tins with 24 paper liners.

Stir together the water and pink lemonade powder.  Combine the cake mix, pink lemonade mixture, applesauce, lemon zest, food coloring and oil in a large bowl and with an electric mixer, mix until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. 

Pour the batter into the prepared cupcake pans.  Add sprinkles if using and bake in the oven for 22 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcakes comes out clean.

Cool completely on wire racks before serving.
I like them best when they are cold! So, I suggest, popping them in the fridge before eating them!

Oh, yes. Applesauce is a wonderful and healthy baking alternative. Do you have a Trader Joes in OK? The have wonderful applesauce. The ingredients are "apples and well water"! No added sugar or preservatives.
