Today was amazing. Seriously. It’s been nearly 100 for the past three weeks straight and then today? BAM! 70 degrees. And not just that, but dark and brooding with storm clouds covering the sky. It was the best day ever, seriously. I said that already, I know, but man, I could say it twenty more times, it was just that great. Fall! Woo! Fall reminds me of more than just pumpkins, though, and I decided it was high time to highlight one of my all-time favorite apple recipes: spiced apple cupcakes with caramel cream cheese frosting. If this doesn’t scream FALL to you, then I just don’t know what will!
When it comes to making these cupcakes, I use Mott’s Apple Sauce in addition to eggs, not as a substitute. Because when you use applesauce as a binder, you don’t get any of the flavor, and I wanted the apple flavor to shine through. I also added a couple tablespoons of Mott’s Apple Juice for good measure.
Also, I drank a glass or two for good luck. Just cause.
Another plus of this spiced apple cupcake recipe is that it will make your home smell amazing. Uh-maaaaaaaze-ing. There is just no escaping the aroma as it wafts from the oven to tickle your nose and make you dance like you have to pee in front of the stove wishing they would hurry up and be done baking already.
That was a great visual, wasn’t it?
Top these bad boys with some deliciously decadent caramel cream cheese frosting and pop some of the awesome seasonal M&M’s that are available at Walmart (uh, hello Candy Apple and Candy Corn?!?) on top and dig in. Yum.
