Apple Spice Babycakes with Pretzel Streusel


Servings: 2

48 (2 1/4") paper medium-size muffin cup liners
Non-stick baking spray, as needed
1 1/2 qt. LUCKY LEAF® Premium Apple Fruit Filling
36 oz. dry spice cake mix
1 1/2 cups liquid egg

  3. Chop Lucky Leaf® Premium Apple Pie Filling into bite-sized chunks. Reserve 1 cup chopped pie filling for topping.
  4. In a large mixing bowl equipped with a paddle attachment, combine cake mix, egg and apple pie filling; beat gently on a low speed until combined, about 1 minute. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes (batter will be thick). Fill prepared muffin cups with a 1/3-cup scoop of cake batter. Top each muffin with 1 tsp. reserved chopped apple pie filling. Sprinkle top with approximately 1 tsp. Pretzel Streusel.* Bake about 20 minutes, or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Remove from heat and cool in cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from cups and cool completely.
