Sweet and tart pink lemonade cupcakes – these cupcakes just scream summer!

Ingredients

  • 18.25 oz box confetti cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
  • 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)

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Cool completely on wire racks before serving.
