Harvest Apple Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

6 November 2013

I am doing a seasonal cupcake baking series on my blog and YouTube channel where I will be sharing my favourite autumn/Thanksgiving recipes with you every Wednesday of this month! So here is my first delight, Harvest Apple Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. This is a delicious recipe from Betty Crocker's Big Book of Cupcakes which you will love if you're a fan of apples & cinnamon! My husband Jonathan can't eat butter, so he just eats these without the frosting and he LOVES them! Even Emilia is obsessed :)

To make the cupcakes you will need:

1 and 1/2 cups caster sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
2 cups plain/all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups chopped cooking apples
1 cup mixed nuts (I use walnuts & pecans)

For the cream cheese frosting you will need:

8oz (226g) cream cheese
1/4 cup butter (softened)
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 teaspoons whole milk
4 cups icing sugar

The recipe bakes 24 - I gave a dozen to my mom & sisters and am bringing another 1/2 dozen to my mommy group tomorrow! I hope you love these as much as we do! Let me know if you try them and be sure to tweet me your pictures or tag me on Instagram/Facebook!
