Apple Cinnamon Cupcakes

Something has happen since the first time I made these, oh about a year ago, and now.  I must have somewhere along the way screwed up the cupcakes!

First batch from here:

Delicious as batter, but rubbery as cake.  I realized after the fact that I was missing an egg.  I made them with 3 instead of 4, which could be why they didn’t really rise.  BUT RUBBER CUPCAKES?!  Not cool.

So then I began to search elsewhere and came across one of my other well liked blogs, How to Eat a Cupcake:

Beautiful presentation, nice round domes, BUT lacking in flavor.

So then I came to the decision of trying to combine the two recipes and this is what I got:

*cream together*

  • 3/4 cup Vegetable oil
  • 1 cup+2 tbs. Sugar
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 3 eggs

*stir in*

  • 1 cup cinnamon applesauce
  • 2 tbs. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup finely chopped apple

They were still too similar to the Cupcake Project recipe, but by the third attempt I was tired and knew the drunken idiots at the Halloween party wouldn’t know the difference.

I haven’t given up yet, I’m searching “apple cinnamon muffins” now…
