Apple Chunk Cupcakes (courtesy of Cupcake Project)
Go big or go home!! No little apple chunks here!!
1 1/2 cups flour (I substituted the half cup with cake flour)
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon lemon extract
2 1/2 cups apple, roughly chopped and loosely packed
|Took 2 apples to make the 2 1/2 cups|
The How To
(sorry for my lack of pictures....)
Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and ginger and set aside (I also sifted my flour too). Beat butter and sugars in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, sour cream, and lemon extract until blended. Mix in flour. Then fold in apple chunks.
|Look at all that apple!!|
Bake at 350 degrees for about 25mins or until toothpick comes out clean
Then I decided to use the pumpkin pie frosting from the chocolate pumpkin cupcakes.
|Next time I think I will try out a cream cheese frosting... Maybe cinnamon or even something with a little lemon flavor.|
