Birthday Cupcakery: Zucchini-Applesauce Cupcakes

For the first time since Riley started school, he didn't ask me to make carrot cake cupcakes for his class birthday treats. This year he requested zucchini cakes.

2 C shredded raw zucchini
3 eggs
1 C organic granulated sugar
1/2 C organic raw turbinado sugar
1/2 C chunky applesauce
1/2 C olive oil
2 C white whole wheat flour
2 t baking soda
2 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ground cardamom
1 t ground nutmeg

In a mixing bowl, place all of the ingredients and stir until just moistened.

I finally got to use Rook No. 17's origami paper -> cupcake liner tutorial. It's been on my list for about two years now.

Spoon the batter into the cupcake liners. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes at 350°, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out with very little or no crumbs clinging to it.
