Any time I manage to make a substitution for oil, eggs, or butter in a dessert, it's a happy day for me. Pumpkin purée (which has a similar consistency to applesauce) is actually the perfect ingredient to use as a substitute for oils and fats in baking. The end result is an incredibly moist cupcake that has the fiber and health of pumpkin without the fat and calories of oil. With such a healthy cream cheese cupcake, this recipe allows for a slight splurge on the frosting. Click here to see The 12 Days of Pumpkin story plus more recipes.
