Do you prefer Apple Pie or Cupcakes for dessert? Pfft, I say why choose when you can have the best of both worlds!
If you’ve never had surprise cupcakes, you’ll love them! They are so easy to make yet look impressive (and taste amazing)! These Apple Pie Cupcakes are soft and fluffy cinnamon infused cupcakes with a surprise apple pie filling in the center!
To make these you will whip up your favorite white cake batter (with a touch of cinnamon added in) and top with a little bit of apple pie filling (store bought or homemade). There’s no need to add extra batter on top of the pie filling, it finds its way to the center of the cupcake! We serve these warm with ice cream or whipped cream. The pie filling makes these exceptionally moist and delicious.
