Lemon Buttons

I found this recipe at Mmm..Cafe awhile ago and finally made them about a month ago. They were so yummy and you can't stop at just one. My husband ate tons of them and so did my kids. If you love lemony cupcakes that just melt in your mouth these are it. They are so easy and yummy!!!

Lemon Buttons
1 yellow cake mix
1 small box(3 1/2 oz) instant lemon pudding mix
4 large eggs
1/2 cup natural(no sugar added) applesauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil

4 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
zest of one lemon
3 T. vegetable oil
3 T. water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray mini muffin tins with cooking spray. You can also put cupcake liners in them as well like I did and spray with cooking spray. combine the cake mix, pudding, eggs, applesauce, and oil and blend well. Fill each muffin tin half full with batter. Bake for about 9 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. For the glaze, mix the powdered sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, oil and water until smooth. Dip the top of the cupcakes into the glaze while they are still warm, Place on wire racks and let the glaze set thoroughly, about 1 hour. Then enjoy!!! Be careful if you are on a diet you can't just eat one believe me!!
