here are your cupcakes:
apple cupcakes. from martha stewart.
cinnamon cream cheese frosting.
(notes about both below...)
the mixing process.
into the tins--they rise a lot, so don't put too much!
a few notes:
for the cupcakes: i used fuji apples, left the skin on, and food chopped it to small pieces (rather than grating--way faster and chunkier).
for the frosting: it's 8 oz cream cheese, 4 tbsp unsalted butter, 3 cups (or so) powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp or so cinnamon. whip the cream cheese and butter and add the vanilla and cinnamon in. then, once that's all mixed and fluffy, add the powdered sugar until it's to the right consistency. oh, and remember that the cream cheese and butter should be room temp. or it's going to be weirdly chunky!
enjoy. this one is a serious winner.
