Recipe | Caramel apple cupcakes.

November 03, 2012

Hello pretties! I hope you all had a lovely Halloween. I spent the evening in with my family watching Halloween 5 and Let The Right One In. I've seen the Halloween movie sooo many times but I still love them all!

Today I have this yummy recipe for you, which was taken from French For Cupcake. Now mines look nowhere near as perfect as hers, but they taste amazing! They are filled with chopped pieces of apple and a secret caramel filling. Let me know if you give them a try, they make the perfect winter cupcakes!

Makes 12 large cupcakes.

2 eggs
225g caster sugar
110g softened butter
125g plain flour
150g self-raising flour
120ml milk
1tsp vanilla extract
1 large red apple
Caramel (I bought the Carnation kind)

For the buttercream:
500g icing sugar
60g softened butter
30ml milk
1tsp vanilla extract


1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4.
2. Mix the eggs, butter and sugar together. Then sieve in the plain flour and the self-raising flour.
3. Gradually add the milk and then the vanilla extract.
4. Finely chop up your apple (take all the skin off too) and then add it into the mix. 
5. Pop the mix into your cupcake cases, making sure to fill about 2/3 of the way.
6. Bake them for about 20 minutes. They should be slightly golden, but give them the cocktail stick test too.
7. Leave them to cool.
8. Cut a little square out the middle of the cupcakes, and add some caramel.


1. Combine the icing sugar and butter in a bowl, whilst gradually pouring in the milk and mixing. 
2. Add the vanilla extract.
3. If the mix is too stiff, add an extra touch of milk. Likewise, if your mix goes too runny, add some more icing sugar.
4. Add food colouring of your choice.
5. Use a piping bag & nozzle to add the buttercream to your cakes.

Like in the recipe I followed, I made little leaves out of fondant and added Twiglets to look like the stalks. I think this makes the perfect finishing touches!
