Apple Cinnamon Cupcakes

>> March 9, 2011

If you want something new other than your usual choco and vanilla cupcakes, but would want something that is as easy to make as your usual, try this apple cinnamon cupcake recipe.

So basically, this is just almost the same as the choco cupcakes recipe I posted a while back, with just a few tweaks in the ingredients and preparation.

1 small apple, peeled, cored, and finely chopped
cinnamon powder
1/4 cup water
100g all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup (200 grams) granulated white sugar
1 large egg

Preparing the apple mixture.
1. Heat a small pot with about 1/4 cup of water.
2. Pour the finely chopped apple.
3. Stir and simmer.
4. Pour about 2 tbsp of granulated sugar.
6. Sprinkle cinnamon powder according to how strong you want the cinnamon flavor to be.
7. Continue stirring until it has caramelized. Set aside and let it cool down.

Preparing the batter.
1. In a small bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt altogether.
2. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk the butter and the egg together.
3. Stir in the sugar. Using a rubber spatula, mix them well until smooth.
4. Pour the flour mixture gradually. Continue mixing with your rubber spatula.
5. Pour in the water.
6. Set your electric mixer in low speed and mix everything together for about 20 seconds. Do not over mix.
7. Carefully pour the apple mix and be sure to not pour in the excess syrup in the mixture, it will make your batter heavy. Fold it in.

When you are done with the batter, you can now pour it in cupcake sheets and put it in your cupcake pan. Bake for about 15-20mins. Use a toothpick to check if the inside is still moist or cooked.

I work and live at night time. I am a person deprived of natural light. I rarely cook in the morning as I'm almost always asleep, else busy with house chores. As much as I love natural light in my photography, I'm afraid I don't usually have that luxury, unless I sacrifice my sleep, or make an effort to stay up longer during the day to do a cooking + photo session. So I depend on my flash, and sometimes, available light from my fluorescent bulbs. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats the natural light, I am, so far, satisfied with my shots using my flash that I learned to love.

I always look forward to the weekends for some sunlight.
