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! These are the ultimate fall cupcakes and are so easy and delicious. This will become your new favorite apple pie cupcake recipe!

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

    • Thank you for your Apple Pie Cupcake Recipe! My 11 year old son’s favorite food is apples. He’d love to try these for sure!

  2. These look DELICIOUS, Kristin!! I can’t wait to try!

  3. I love cupcakes and these look wonderful! So excited to give them a try!

  4. Sorry, pressed add comment too soon! These look delicious, I love apple pie and to have it in a cupcake is my idea of heaven!

  5. These look delicious!!!And surprisingly simple, can’t wait to give them a try.

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. Did yall add the oil and water or just the yogurt?

  9. 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!

  10. How many cupcakes does this recipe make?

  11. is it okay to freeze they with the icing on

  12. I made this recipe for the 4th and it received rave reviews from everyone who ate the cup cakes. Thanks for an amazing recipe!

  13. Could I use applesauce instead of yogurt? I’ve seen that on other cupcake recipes, and it seems like a good fit for this recipe

  14. I’m about to make these tomorrow for the 2nd time—they got rave reviews the first time!! They are so good.  I also made a homemade cinnamon cream cheese frosting, and I couldn’t find the apple yogurt.  I used plain Greek yogurt and stirred in a spoonful of the chopped apple pie filling.  It worked great and tasted delicious-just thought I would share since a few others asked about apple yogurt substitutes!

  16. Just wondering what the weight or size of the yoghurt container is. I’m in Australia & our sizes are different, just want to check that I use the right quantity.
    Thanks

  17. Jamielyn,

    I love so much your recipes…If I had time left I would spend most of it to cook and bake all you suggest….although some conversion in “grams” would be very much appreciated and it would it make easier… !!!!

    Is there any hope to have double directions either in tbsp/ cup and in “grams or liters”?? Thanks a lot, FabtheFabulous

  18. Apple pie and cupcakes had a baby and this is what you get! LOVE!

  19. These apple pie cupcakes sound perfect for fall. Holy yum!
