Apple Caramel Cupcakes


While my mother and I cut, peeled, and smashed apples all day for applesauce, I decided to make this treat for some snacking. I called them cupcakes. But really the texture of the cake is more like a muffin. A pretty muffin! I am in love with these sweet little pieces of goodness. They taste good without the icing if you want to make them for a breakfast treat. But that icing is superb. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

1 Cup Vegetable Oil
2 Cups White Sugar
3 Eggs
3 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract (Oops Of Course)
3 Cups Peeled and Chopped Apples
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine oil, sugar and eggs.

Sift the flour and baking soda.

Then add vanilla and apples.

Mix well.

Simple as that.

Frosting

1/2 Cup Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar, Packed
1/4 Cup Evaporated Milk
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla

Boil all ingredients in a small sauce pan for approximately 2 minutes.

Once boiled, set the pan in a bowl of cold water.

Beat the icing until its a spreading consistency.

I mean whip that icing. I whipped till my arm hurt.

After your cupcakes have cooled. Spread the icing evenly over the tops.

The icing will thicken to a fudgy consistency.  Try to get it one the tops before that happens.

I was using my fingers by the time I got finished.

Garnish as you please.
