Apple pie cupcakes recipe

Makes 24 cupcakes


  • 1 box Betty Crocker vanilla cake mix
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • Whipped cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the cake mix, water, vegetable oil and eggs.
  3. Line cupcake pans with 24 baking cup liners. Fill each baking cup 2/3 of the way full with batter.
  4. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the cupcakes.
  5. Remove the cupcakes from the oven and allow them to cool.
  6. While the cupcakes cool, melt the butter in a medium skillet, then add the sugar and cinnamon and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  7. Add the chopped apples to the skillet and cook for 5-7 minutes until the apples are tender.
  8. Remove the apples from the skillet and allow them to cool.
  9. While the apples cool, use a small spoon to remove the center of each cupcake, creating a well. Fill each well with some of the apple mixture, dividing it evenly among the cupcakes.
  10. Top the cupcakes with whipped cream and serve immediately.
