Apple Pie Cupcakes

I couldn't decide what cupcake to make this weekend for 4th of July, and then I saw a tweet that said there wasn't anything more American then Apple Pie. How true! So I set out to make a cupcake that tasted like Apple Pie!


1/2 cup of butter

1 individual size applesauce

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup of sour cream

1/2 cup of milk

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1/2 teaspoons of vanilla

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves

Bake on 355 degrees for 20 minutes. Once cool, core the cupcakes for a filling. How to: gently scoop out the middle portion, creating a small bowl for the filling.

2 granny apples /cut and sliced into small pieces

1 tablespoon of cinnamon

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup of apple juice (I used sparkling apple cider)
1/2 cup of brown sugar

Bring to a boil then reduce to a medium simmer for about 20 minutes, allowing the apples to cook to a soft filling.
Make sure you watch this mixture, my first one burned!
Let cool, then add to cupcakes.

I didn't want to do a full buttercream frosting, I wanted a small topping frosting that would resemble an ice cream/whip topping.
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

1 cup of powdered sugar

1 tsp of Vanilla

1 tsp of cinnamon

After your filling is cooled and placed in the cupcake, top with frosting. Enjoy!
