Fall is my favorite time of year. I love it because all of my favorite Holidays happen within this season like Halloween and Thanksgiving. It’s the time of year where you can get incredibly creative with your baking and look at what nature gives you for inspiration. Fall bring apples which can be baked, grated, juiced and chopped any which way from Sunday. This beautifully versatile fruit lends itself to pies, fritters, cider, cakes and cupcakes just like the ones I made. My Apple Cupcakes are not only apple on the outside but on the inside as well. The cupcake is incredibly moist because we add in grated apple at the end. When the apple bakes it almost disappears leaving you a soft, crumbly cupcake. Cinnamon plays a big part in this recipe as a lot of people equate it with Fall and the holiday Season. It’s the perfect bite to get you in the mood for Autumn. I very simply decorated my Cakes to look like apples. It doesn’t take a lot of work. All you need is a buttercream frosting and a star nozzle to recreate these adorable cupcakes. I’m a firm believer that we eat with our eyes so if these cupcakes don’t get you in the fall spirit i don’t know what will. My KitchenAid® Artisan Mini Stand Mixer is the perfect size to make this batch of 12 Apple Cupcakes. What I love about this mixer is that the whisk reaches the bottom of the bowl so for even small batches everything gets combined properly. Try These Recipes!
