Apple Pie Cupcakes

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).

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).
