After a wonderful Thanksgiving with my family and friends, I was inspired to bake Apple Pie cupcakes to fit the Fall mood.
The cupcakes were apple flavored with apple sauce and cinnamon. I chose a basic cream cheese frosting and topped them with apple pie filling.
I baked 48 of these for an event and everyone enjoyed them.
Here is the basic recipe:
APPLE PIE CUPCAKES
(Yield: regular dozen)
2 c. of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp table salt
3 oz (6 tbsp) butter
1 1/4 granulated sugar
3/4 c. of apple sauce
1 c. sour cream
1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In another mixing bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Add applesauce, butter, and sour cream; beat until blended. Stir into flour mixture; mix well.
2. Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Pour into cupcake pan and bake for 18-20 minutes.
3. Frost cupcakes with desired frosting and top with apple pie filling.
