Caramel Apple Pie Cupcakes

READY IN: 30mins




  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Make the cupcake batter. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla and baking powder.
  • Add the flour and milk in batches, starting with flour and ending with flour. Stir until the batter is smooth and silky.
  • Fill paper-lined muffin tins with the batter 3/4 full.
  • Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely before decorating.
  • While the cupcakes are cooling, make the apple pie filling. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar. Cook until the mixture begins to bubble, about 1 minute.
  • Lower the heat to medium. Stir in the apples and salt. Cook and stir occasionally until the apples are tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool.
  • Assemble the cupcakes. Using a paring knife, cut out the middle of each cupcake using the coning method.
  • Spoon the apple mixture into each cupcake and drizzle caramel over all.
  • Top with whipped cream and decorate.
  • Enjoy!
