It's apple season in Georgia. And apple season would not be complete without an apple picking trip to the North Georgia mountains.
And as you would probably guess, apple picking trips = LOTS of apples which means LOTS of apple recipes.
They are soooo good. And a great way to highlight all of the delicious apples that we brought home from Ellijay.
Apple Pie Cupcakes
3 cups sifted cake flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
1 ½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup milk
3 tbsp. butter
3 tsp. cinnamon
4 tbsp. sugar
3 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced thin
vanilla buttercream (I used 3/4 of a batch)
Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake liners, filling them about 2/3-3/4 full.
Bake until golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 18 to 22 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes in the pans. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Lower the heat to medium and stir in the apples. Mix well. Cook until the apples are somewhat tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
While the apple mixture is cooling, use the cone method to remove the center from each cupcake, making sure to leave a rim around the top of the cupcake.
Eat the holes - yes, that is required.
Brush the rim of each cupcake with butter and dip in cinnamon sugar.
Fill the holes with the cooled apple mixture.
To decorate, top each cupcake with a swirl of vanilla buttercream.
There you go - the most delicious apple cupcake EVER!!!
