These delicious homemade apple pie cupcakes recipe is the very spirit of fall! The flavors are dynamic and drool-worthy. You will fall in love with this cupcake recipe!
It was my dad’s birthday on October 10th but I didn’t get to come in and bake something for him until the Friday after. I was pretty excited to get started too, I had the perfect idea for this: they went apple picking just a week prior and still had a lot of apples left over – they both absolutely love apples. I am all for making cupcakes though because they are so darn cute – and festive! So why not combine an apple pie recipe and a cupcake, so you get the best of both worlds? And boy, were these the best of both worlds indeed… I present you with homemade Apple Pie Cupcakes!
I was sad I didn’t make more. This recipe comes out with 10 delicious homemade apple pie filled cupcakes which are only slightly sweet, but it was absolutely perfect for all of us. Apples are naturally sweet so why add super crazy amounts of sugar when this is bound to be sweet already? Plus the frosting is a lot more sweet which compensates for the less-sweet cupcake.
Man, oh man… these cupcakes were delicious. They went FAST! The filling was amazing and both my parents praised me for a job well done. I was quite proud of the outcome too and I was almost immediately urged to make more! But no, no… I had like three and I think that’s enough for one day! Haha. I hope you make these delicious homemade apple pie cupcakes which are perfect for Autumn. You will not be disappointed!
