Hey there! I’m Kristin from Yellow Bliss Road! I am pinching myself right now and kind of can’t believe I’m here at I Heart Naptime – thank you endless to Jamielyn for inviting me to be a guest!!!

I love to bake and I have recently developed quite an obsession for cupcakes. It all started with this pretty little orange buttercream cupcake a couple of months ago. It was so much fun to come up with a different version of the basic homemade cupcake, that I had to do it again. And again and again…

Today I have a delicious Apple Pie Cupcake to share with you! Apple pie is one of my all time favorite desserts, but it’s not that easy to make. So I figured I’d whip up an easy, semi-homemade cupcake version that combines all of the comforting flavors of apple pie, with a delicious cupcake!

Apple Pie Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Ingredients (pictuerd below)
1 box yellow cake mix
2 eggs
1 cup apple juice (not pictured)
1 container apple flavored light Yoplait yogurt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup of apple pie filling

1. Pour all ingredients, except pie filling, into a large bowl and beat on low speed for thirty seconds, then medium speed for two minutes.

2. Fill cupcakes liners about 2/3 of the way full with batter.

3. Coarsely chop apple pie filling so you have chunks rather than slices. Top batter with a spoonful of apple pie filling.

4. Bake in a preheated, 325 degree oven for about 17-19 minutes.

5. Allow to cool completely, then frost with Cinnamon Cream Cheese icing (below).

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing
1 can Betty Crocker Cream Cheese Icing
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp powdered sugar (optional)

Beat ingredients on medium speed until light and fluffy; about a minute. Frost your cupcakes!

The addition of the yogurt might sound a little strange, but trust me, it makes for a super moist and delicious cupcake, and really intensifies the apple flavor! (You can also use oil and water as instructed on the box).

    Seriously, I never comment on recipes but felt compelled to do so. I have made these twice since it was posted and they are DELICIOUS ! They were such a hit. I did add homemade cream cheese frosting, but other than that, made no changes. These will definitely be on my go to list!

    These are amazing! I’ve made these several times and they’re always a hit! I do make my own cinnamon cream cheese frosting which only enhances the deliciousness of these cupcakes!

    Sorry, I didn’t mean to leave that comment. I just wanted to ask if there could be a substitute for the Yogurt. I too am having trouble finding the Apple Turnover flavor. Thanks. this looks DELISH and I can’t wait to bake!

      I’m sure it would still work great with another kind of yogurt! I think the cinnamon roll yogurt would be yummy in these cupcakes! :)
