Apple and Cinnamon Cupcakes

4 November 2016 | Post A Comment
At this time of year, these cupcakes are perfect. They're easy to make and look and taste amazing. They are the perfect mix of cinnamon, apple and chocolate and make perfect treats to impress people you might have visiting.

What you need for the cakes...

125g butter
140g caster sugar
2 eggs
200g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 apples
3 tsp cinnamon

and the frosting...

125g butter
300g icing sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
2 crunchie bars

First, preheat the oven to 180c and put your cases in the muffin tin. Cream the butter and caster sugar and mix in the eggs, flour and baking powder. Grate the apples and add them and the cinnamon to the mixture. Spoon out the mixture into the cases and bake for 25 minutes.

Whilst the cakes are cooling, cream the butter for the frosting and add the icing sugar little by little, you can blend in a dash of milk if needed. Spoon half into a separate bowl and mix in the cocoa powder. To get the two toned frosting effect, place the frosting bag in a glass and fill one side with the chocolate frosting and the other with the plain. Try to pipe it on neatly and then finish with crunched up crunchie bars.

These are possibly the nicest cupcakes I have ever tasted, the freshness of the apple tastes amazing with the sweetness of the chocolate frosting, perfection! What do you think, will you be trying them?

  6. Apple and cinnamon are two of my favourite things, they always seem to remind me of apple pie for some reason, but these look so good! I totally wish that I could bake things that actually look edible rather than a burnt mess :-(
