Seems like the list of ingredients is missing...
Hmmm, While I look into why they won;t display properly... here they are:
FILLING 4 ounces reduced-fat or nonfat cream cheese 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar 1/2 cup yellow squash, pureed 1 large egg white 1/8 teaspoon salt
CUPCAKE BATTER 1 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup nonfat (skim) milk 1/2 cup blueberry puree 1/2 cup spinach puree 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt
Do you have to use skim milk or can you use 1%? We don't use skim milk in our house and I don't want to buy some that will end up going to waste.
Question why do you add spinach? And can you do this with out it?
@becastle: I'm not Leanne but I thought of chiming my opinion in...Spinach really doesn't have an overpowering taste IMO (albeit lending an unsightly non-traditional cake color to your batter, but with the blueberry puree also added in, I guess it would make it more like a dark colored batter that can be mistaken for dark choc?), so I guess Leanne just want to add something healthy into the recipe. I guess you can pretty much sub the spinach puree with some other chockful of vitamins type of puree that you like. Probably you can sub with other berries puree or pumpkin or squash. JMO.
This actually isn't my recipe. In the process of updating it I had a glitch that removed the OP's name. I'm working on the back end to correct it. But I can comment that the spinach would add some hidden nutrients and also some moisture. You could substitute additional fruit puree. A few years ago I made some spinach lime cupcakes and you can't even taste the spinach in them.
This simply a beautiful recipe, we use blueberries with cheesecake is a wonderful combination. We use blueberries heavily in our recipe.
