195. Apple Cinnamon Cupcakes

Apples and cinnamon, and irresistible combination in autumn. These little cozy apple cupcakes are certainly dressed the part! Delicious chunky cupcakes are covered with and frosting of choice dyed red, a little pretzel stick acts as the stem, and some green marzipan shaped for the leaves. There you immediately have an awe-inspiring sweet that cleverly uses simple and common pantry staples!

Wet ingredients are combined, then the dry are beaten in until just combined. Do not over beat the batter, and allow to cool completely before frosting.
Adapted from wilton.


For the cupcakes:
2 eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup butter melted
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 cups Granny Smith apples peeled and chopped

For decoration:
red frosting
pretzel sticks
green marzipan


Preheat oven to 350F.
In a bowl beat together the eggs, milk, vanilla, and melted butter.
Add the sugar, sifted flour, baking powder, and cinnamon.
Beat until just combined, do not over-beat the batter.
Fold in the apple.
Using and icecream scooper with spring handle, divide the batter among paper-lined cupcake tins (I got 24).
Bake for 18-20  minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool completely before frosting.
Dye the frosting red, or any color of choice, and cover the surface with the frosting.
Insert a pretzel stick in the center.
Dye the marzipan green, and shaped like a leaf.
Place the marzipan leaf just touching the pretzel stick.
Refrigerate until serving.
