I am busy mom who is often pressed for time but I love to bake. Many times I don’t have the extra time needed to make my desserts from scratch. I often resort to box cake mixes and canned frosting to throw together a quick cake or batch of cupcakes. Just the other day I was expecting 15+ guests for a volunteer meeting and did not want to put out the old stand buy but time was of the essence. I put my thinking hat on and spent a few minutes searching Pinterest and came up with this Easy Cupcake Recipe for Apple Cupcakes. The best thing was I didn’t have to run to the store for any ingredients because I had everything I needed. The time needed to prepare these was only a few more minutes than preparing the box mix. So don’t serve the same old cake or cupcakes again spice things up with this Easy Cupcake Recipe.

I used Carmel Apple Frosting for this easy cupcake recipe but you can pick whatever frosting is your favorite. Butterscotch, Cream Cheese, and Peanut Butter would be great flavors to try with these apple cupcakes.

    I would go with the cream cheese frosting! I like recipes that mix a bit of already prepared with a bit of DIY. I’m wondering if these taste a bit like an apple fritter would.
