don't these look delish? caramel apple cupcakes.
they are a ooey, gooey must have treat for fall.
they taste just like a caramel apple, but better!
and i have a boat load of apples from my dad's apple tree that needed a worthy recipe.
you should make these...you will love them. PROMISE!
here's the goodies list to make a dozen.
you probably already guessed i made 2 dozen.
just call me miss doubley doubler.
1 1/4 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs at room temp. mine weren't and it turned out just fine!
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 c vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 apples, peeled & shredded (about 1 pound)
bag of caramels
1 tsp heavy cream.
preheat oven to 350*
whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
add this bowl to the flour mixture and combine.
i did it this way...
add the apples to the batter.
grab some cupcake liners and line your pan.
while they are cooling on a rack start unwrapping the caramels.
and yes...they are really pretty this way.
plus when it completely cools down and you bite into one...
you end up with the entire top stuck to the roof of your mouth.
but wait! i alas have a plan C for next time.
i plan on sticking one caramel into each cupcake right before i bake it.
instead of making it a topping i plan to bake it right in.
who knows if it would work, but i am going to try it.
and i will let you know how it comes out.
hopefully it's genius!
now go bake some yummy fall goodness for your family.
and don't forget the wet wipes...
