Apple Pie Cupcakes
2 granny smith apples, finely chopped
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp butter
1 box French Vanilla cake mix
1 1/3 cup water
1/2 cup applesauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread apple pieces in a single layer on a lined cookie sheet. Sprinkle sugars, nutmeg and cinnamon over apples. Bake for 20 minutes or until apples are cooked.
Remove pan from oven and immediately pour apples and sacue into a heat resistant bowl. Stir in butter until melted. Set aside to cool.
In a large mixing bowl, beat cake mix, water, eggs and applesauce until well blended. Mix apples into cake batter. Scoop batter into lined cupcake pans.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.
I used vanilla frosting and sprinkled cinnamon.
