Cinnamon-Apple Cupcakes
There is cinnamon, spice and everything nice in these cinnamon-apple cupcakes!
Yield: 18 cupcakes
  • 1¾ cups sugar, divided
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 oz nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 granny smith apples, peeled and chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together 1½ cups sugar, butter, vanilla, and Greek yogurt until combined, about 3 minutes. Add in the eggs one at a time, stirring well and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Add into the batter, mixing on low speed until just combined.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ¼ cup sugar and cinnamon. Toss the apple chunks with 2 tbsp of the cinnamon mixer. Fold apple pieces into the batter.
  5. Line 2 cupcake tins with 18 liners. Divide the batter amongst the liners. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture over each cupcake.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack before serving.
