Apple Cupcakes with Cinnamon-Marshmallow Frosting
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.
Make Ahead Tip: Store unfrosted cupcakes airtight at room temperature for up to 1 day.
Equipment: 12 (1/2-cup) muffin cups
Ingredient Note: Dried egg whites are pasteurized so this product is a wise choice in recipes that call for an uncooked frosting or meringue. Look for brands like Just Whites in the baking or natural-foods section of most supermarkets. Reconstitute according to package directions.
