Apple Pie Cupcakes

My daughter requests to make cupcakes ALL THE TIME!  Lately I feel like we've been kind of a one hit wonder with plain old chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing and sprinkles.  So when she suggested yet again the other day that we should make cupcakes for a barbeque we hosted on the weekend, I looked to Pinterest for inspiration.  These Apple Pie Cupcakes jumped out at me, courtesy of spoonfulofflavor.  I didn't change a thing when I made these, and they turned out delicious.  Here is another link to the recipe.  I'm linking right to it because this delicious morsel is all down to the original writer.  I didn't tweak anything.

I have to stress though....always use sifted cake flour when a recipe calls for it.  That is the key to having a light and fluffy from-scratch cupcake.  It changed my life when I finally stopped ignoring any call for cake flour in a recipe and using regular old all purpose.  My dense and heavy from-scratch cupcakes are behind me since finally surrendering to the awesomeness that cake flour provides.

Here is a picture of the finished product:
