Directions for Apple Cheddar Cupcakes with Jalapeno-Apple Filling topped with Vanilla Butter Frosting

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line muffin pans with 16 to 17 cupcake liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and then the vanilla extract. Beat until they are well combined. Add half of the dry ingredients, alternating with the applesauce. Mix just until combined. Fold the diced apples into the batter.
  4. Fill the cupcake liners about half full with batter. Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of the Crumble Topping into each batter-filled liner. Bake until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Transfer the pans to wire racks to cool completely before assembling the cupcakes.
  5. To assemble: Place the Vanilla Butter Frosting in a pastry bag fitted with a closed-star tip. Pipe frosting around the outside rim of the cupcakes, creating a well in the center. Place about 1/2 teaspoon of the Jalapeno-Apple Filling in the well. Finish the cupcakes by rolling the edges in the crushed cheddar potato chips.
  6. In a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, nuts and cinnamon. Then add the softened butter. Mix together with a fork or your fingers until everything is well combined.
  7. Put the powdered sugar and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and mix on low for 10 seconds. Add the vanilla extract, butter and 4 tablespoons sour cream. Mix on low for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat on medium-high speed until creamy. Add the remaining tablespoon sour cream if necessary to bring the frosting to spreading consistency.
  8. Place the apples in a medium saucepan on the stove. Add the brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and 3 tablespoons water; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for about 1 minute, and then reduce the heat to a simmer until the filling thickens. If needed, gradually add the cornstarch and whisk after each addition. After the mixture thickens, remove the pan from the heat and add the jalapeno. Let cool completely.

  • Fruit – In botany, a fruit is the seed-bearing structure in flowering plants that is formed from the ovary after flowering.Fruits are the means by which flowering plants (also known as angiosperms) disseminate their seeds. Edible fruits in particular have long propagated using the movements of humans and animals in a symbiotic relationship that is the means for seed dispersal for the one group and nutrition for the other; in fact, humans and many animals have become dependent on fruits as a source of food. Consequently, fruits account for a substantial fraction of the world’s agricultural output, and some (such as the apple and the pomegranate) have acquired extensive cultural and symbolic meanings.In common language usage, “fruit” normally means the fleshy seed-associated structures (or produce) of plants that typically are sweet or sour and edible in the raw state, such as apples, bananas, grapes, lemons, oranges, and strawberries. In botanical usage, the term “fruit” also includes many structures that are not commonly called “fruits”, such as nuts, bean pods, corn kernels, tomatoes, and wheat grains.
