Sweet and tart pink lemonade cupcakes – these cupcakes just scream summer!
18.25ozbox confetti cake mix(I used Duncan Hines)
2 1/2tsppowdered sugar-free pink lemonade mix
lemon zest from half of a lemon
2drops pink food coloring(optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 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.
