I couldn’t decide what cupcake to make this weekend for 4th of July, and then I saw a tweet that said there wasn’t anything more American then Apple Pie. How true! So I set out to make a cupcake that tasted like Apple Pie!

Recipe: Apple Pie Cupcakes



  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1 individual size applesauce
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves


Bake on 355 degrees for 20 minutes. Once cool, core the cupcakes for a filling. How to: gently scoop out the middle portion, creating a small bowl for the filling.


  • 2 granny apples /cut and sliced into small pieces
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup of apple juice (I used sparkling apple cider)
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar


Bring to a boil then reduce to a medium simmer for about 20 minutes, allowing the apples to cook to a soft filling.
Make sure you watch this mixture, my first one burned! Let cool, then add to cupcakes.


I didn’t want to do a full buttercream frosting, I wanted a small topping frosting that would resemble an ice cream/whip topping.
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

1 cup of powdered sugar

1 tsp of Vanilla

1 tsp of cinnamon

After your filling is cooled and placed in the cupcake, top with frosting. Enjoy!
