  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Cake:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, egg white, sugar, oil, and applesauce.
  • In a separate bowl combine all dry ingredients. Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and beat all together.
  • Add carrots, pineapple, and pecans (optional), and mix again. Spoon into 24 lined muffin cups; filling about 2/3 full.
  • Place pan on the middle oven rack and bake for 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes and then remove from the pan. Allow cupcakes to cool completely on wire racks before frosting.
  • Frosting:

  • In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, cream cheese, and vanilla extract.
  • Gradually beat in powdered sugar. Add milk to desired consistency. (Don’t make it too thin or it will slide off the cupcakes.)
  • Frost cupcakes with a small spatula or use your favorite pastry tip and bag. Garnish with crushed pecans, if desired.
