Instructions

To prepare cupcakes:

  1. Preheat oven to 325F and line a 12 cup muffin pan with muffin liners. Set aside.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Whisk wet ingredients together in a large bowl.
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix until incorporated.
  5. Divide batter into prepared muffin cups.
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  7. Allow cupcakes to cool in the pan for 1 minute before removing from the pan and placing on a cooling rack to cool.

To prepare apple filling:

  1. Add oil to a medium-sized frying pan. Heat on medium heat.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and saute for 8-10 minutes until apples are crisp tender.
  3. Remove from heat and set aside.

To prepare frosting:

  1. Add all ingredients to a small food processor or blender.

To assemble cupcakes:

  1. To insert the apple pie filling, use a melon baller to scoop out a circle of cake from the top of each cupcake. Drop a tablespoon or so of apple pie filling into the hole of each cupcake and press the mixture gently so that it’s flush with the top of the cake.
  2. Drop a dollop of frosting onto each cupcake and smooth with an icing knife.
