Apple Crumb Cupcakes

Apple Crumb Cupcakes

I wanted to make a dessert for a friend of mine. Since I had a couple of apples, I knew I wanted to use them. I decided to use my apple crumb cake recipe, but turn it into cupcakes instead. That crumb topping is so good. Just thought it would be a fun experiment. It mostly worked out.

The cupcakes worked out very nicely, and my friend was happy to get them. The only problem was that I ended up making 12 cupcakes. I should have made a few more. They were very full and rose more than I had anticipated. Don’t get me wrong, they still tasted great, but smaller cupcakes would have looked better. I would make 15-18 cupcakes the next time.

So here is the recipe. Enjoy!!

Apple Crumb Cupcakes

For cupcake batter:

2 c. flour

2 t. baking powder

½ t. salt

½ stick (¼ cup) butter, softened

¾ c. sugar

1 egg

½ c. milk

2 c. chopped peeled, cored apples

For topping:

½ c. sugar

¼ c. flour

1 t. cinnamon

½ stick (¼ c. butter, chilled and cut into bits)

Combine dry ingredients and set aside. In mixing bowl with electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and milk. Add flour mixture gradually until just mixed in. Fold in apples. Grease or line muffin tins with paper liners. You should get 15-18 cupcakes, depending on how full you fill them. I made 12 in my test batch, and they were too full. Divide batter among the prepared pans, filling about 2/3 full. The batter is pretty thick. That is normal. Combine topping ingredients until they resemble coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over batter in pans. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven and bake for 20-22 minutes. Use toothpick to test. Makes 15-18.

Apple Crumb Cupcakes- a little too big!
