Still Autumm - Apple & Cinnamon Cupcakes

Last entry before putting on Santa's hat and start uploading photos of stuff decorated in greens, reds & whites.

The truth is I hadn't planned to bake this cupcakes and as I started to make them I had no idea what I was going to do with 8 cupcakes (and eating all 8 was not an option). But I was bored, so I started to look for recipes with just one condition: I wanted cinnamon. Finally, I ended up with this Wilton's apple cupcakes recipe. And I love them, with or without buttercream. Just a bite, and this cupcakes take you back to a Christmas market in any European center country, one of those which have lots of small wooden houses and lots of pretty things. So, although I've made those cupcakes autumnal themed, will look great with Christmas decorations.


For the cupcakes (makes 8):
  • 1 egg
  • 60 ml evaporated milk
  • 35 gr butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 170 gr flour
  • 55 gr sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 grated Golden apple
For the buttercream:
  • 100 gr buttercream
  • 100 gr icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 180ºC (360ºF). Prepare a cupcake pan with cupcakes cases.
Heat the butter in the microwave for about 1 minute until it's melted. Beat it with the egg, milk and vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, cinnamon and baking powder, and add it to the butter mixture, slightly beating until all ingredients are well combined. Add the grated apple and mix with a spatula.
Fill the cases and put the pan in the oven. Bake for about 20 minutes, until a until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let the cupcakes rest in the pan for 5 minutes, then, take them off and let cold completely in a rack.

For the buttercream, beat butter and sugar until start being creamy. Add vanilla and cinnamon and continue beating until all ingredients are well combined.

Hope you enjoy it!
