Recipe type: Dessert
  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups coarsely shredded apples
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two mini cupcake pans with paper liners (I’d also recommend making some regular size cupcakes as well, otherwise you will have millions of minis!).
  2. Whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl; set aside. Using am electric mixer, cream butter and sugar on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Mix in eggs and vanilla.
  3. Reduce speed to low; mix in apples. Then slowly add in the flour mixture until just combined.
  4. Fill lined cupcakes halfway with batter; bake until tops are springy to the touch (12-15 minutes for mini cupcakes, 18-20 minutes for regular cupcakes). Remove from pans and let cool completely.
