Lola’s Christmassy cinnamon, caramel and apple cupcakes

This recipe is my little sister Lola’s very own! We recently baked these together and they were so easy and delicious and Christmassy!! 

Cupcake mix:

  • 120g self raising flour
  • 110g sugar
  • 110g butter (softened)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • A splash of milk

Apple and caramel topping:

  • 2 apples cut into cubes
  • 300ml double cream 
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 85g butter cut into cubes 
  • 1tsp cinnamon 

First, preheat your oven to 180 degrees. Then fill a cupcake tin with cupcake cases. 

Add all your ingredients into a bowl and mix until fully combined. Then, spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases and bake for 22-25 mins. 

Check if the cupcakes are fully baked by placing a knife into the centre of a cupcake – if it comes out clean, the cake is done, if the knife has mixture on it, put the cakes back in the oven for 2-3 minutes more.

Once the cakes are fully cooked, transfer them to a wire rack to cool.

To make the apple and caramel topping, place the butter, cinnamon, sugar and cream in a pan. Melt the ingredients together, giving them a gentle stir. When all the ingredients are melted and combined, take the pan off the heat and add in the apple cubes, which will soften in the mixture.

Spoon a generous amount of apple and caramel onto the top of each cupcake and for a finishing touch sprinkle with icing sugar.
