Substituting eggs & oil!

Substituting eggs & oil!

I recently made brownies where I used a box of brownie mix and instead of using any eggs and oil, I used a banana that I purred in my magic bullet with some no-sugar added apple sauce. When combined I added it to my mixture, added in another 1/2c apple sauce and put in 2 tbsp of water and mixed. I made my brownies in cupcake pans to make serving size and it was delicious. Very moist, VERY chocolatey with a slight hint of banana in the background!

Witch's Feet Cupcakes

Try this for fast and easy halloween cupcakes. Make cupcakes and frosting according to the directions on the new Duncan Hines Decadent Black & White cupcake mix. Add a few drops of green food coloring to the frosting and pipe in onto the cupcakes. Decorate wood coffee stirrers to make the witch's legs. Cut the witch's shoes out of black paper and tape to the ends of each coffee stirrer.
