Caramel Apple Pie Cupcakes Recipe!

Makes 24 cupcakes

3/4 cup butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups milk


2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons sugar
3 apples, peeled, cored and diced
1 pinch salt
caramel topping, to taste
whipped cream, for topping


1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2 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.
3 Add the flour and milk in batches, starting with flour and ending with flour. Stir until the batter is smooth and silky.
4 Fill paper-lined muffin tins with the batter 3/4 full.
5 Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely before decorating.
6 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.
7 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.
8 Assemble the cupcakes. Using a paring knife, cut out the middle of each cupcake using the coning method.
9 Spoon the apple mixture into each cupcake and drizzle caramel over all.
10 Top with whipped cream and decorate.
