20--- Teeny Weenie Baby Food Cupcakes

Sorry to throw another 20 at you so soon.

But this is cause for celebration!!!

My wee babe is 6 months old today.  That is 1/2 of a year.

I feel so accomplished.  

I also feel the need to start planning her first birthday party.

Shall it be a grand gala or a little shindig?

Either way there will be cupcakes.

And what a better way to celebrate a baby's first birthday then with baby food cupcakes?

Any flavor works.

Please avoid the meat purees, however.

That would be gross.

Teeny Weenie Baby Food Cupcakes
Makes ~1 dozen mini cupcakes

1/2 cup baby food puree (I used homemade butternut squash)
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
2 Tbsp almond milk
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line baking cups with cupcake liners, or spray lightly with baking spray.

In a medium bowl, use a handheld mixer to combine puree, oil, milk, sugars, and vanilla until smooth.

Sift in flour and baking powder.  Mix until just combined.

Spoon baking cups nearly full with batter and bake for 20 minutes.

Remove and allow to cool to room temperature prior to frosting/storing.

I topped mine with a simple vanilla buttercream frosting.
