Apple Caramel Cupcakes

Instructions

Step 1
  • For the Cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 180°C. Peel the apple and finely dice it. Place cupcake cases into silicone or tin moulds.
Step 2
  • Whisk together the spreadable and sugar until light and creamy. Add one egg at a time and combine well.
Step 3
  • Sift the flour, cinnamon, and the baking powder into the mixture and gently fold together.
Step 4
  • Add the fresh apple and mix gently.
Step 5
  • Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases and transfer to the oven and bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool before icing and filling.
Step 6
  • For The Filling: Place the caster sugar into a deep saucepan and place on the medium heat. Keep stiring the sugar until it turns into an amber colour.
Step 7
  • At this stage remove the pan from the heat and add the spreadable and the double cream. Mix well until it has turned into a smooth mixture. Finally add the salt and leave to cool.
Step 8
  • Remove a small section of the cupcake and fill it with the caramel. Add the remaining caramel to the icing.
Step 9
  • For the Icing: Sieve the icing sugar. Whisk the icing sugar, cinnamon, the cream cheese and the spreadable together, until it is a smooth mixture. Mix the icing with the remaining caramel.
Step 10
  • Place the icing into a piping bag with a star nozzle attachment. Pipe the icing on top of the cupcakes, starting from the outside of the cake working your way into the centre.
