Apple Cupcakes with Cinnamon-Marshmallow Frosting

September/October 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (217 votes)

Shredded apple replaces some of the oil and keeps the cake moist in these cinnamon-spiked cupcakes. There is a generous amount of fluffy marshmallow frosting to mound or pipe on top for a festive look. Be sure to frost them right after you make the frosting—it stiffens as it stands and becomes more difficult to spread.

These are silly good

I replaced 1/3 of the brown sugar that is mixed with the apples and into the cupcake batter with Stevia (Extract - in the Raw) and they still turned out fantastic. Next time I might try replacing some of the brown sugar in the frosting with stevia as well.
I don't have a hand mixer, so after removing the marshmallow fluff from the double boiler I dumped it in my stand mixer and mixed on high for a few minutes, then mixed it some more after adding the cinnamon and vanilla. The frosting wasn't runny at all and piped well with a piping bag. Like others, I found that only half of the frosting is needed for 12 cupcakes.

Also, I have made these dairy-free for a friend with a milk allergy using 1/2cup vanilla Silk light soy milk + 1/2tbsp apple cider vinegar in place of buttermilk (allow the soy milk + vinegar mixture to stand a few minutes to curdle before using). They turned out fantastic, and he was thrilled to have cupcakes WITH frosting that had no milk!

easy, fun to make

These were so good! I didn't even get the frosting on before they were gone. Super moist. Making another round today, maybe we will get the frosting this time.

Sweet and Moist

Brought these to a house party and no one could tell they are healthy. Everyone raved about how delicious they are. I only made half of the frosting and it was plenty, although I am not much of a frosting fan.

My icing was very runny-any suggestion for what I did wrong?

Dried egg whites are pasteurized so this product is a wise choice in dishes that call for an uncooked meringue. How to make a sage meringue http://www.ochef.com/728.htm
