Ingredients for Apple Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (see Cook’s Note)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 large crisp sweet apple, such as Gala, peeled, cored, and finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 5 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup marshmallow cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch fine salt

Directions for Apple Cupcakes with Marshmallow Frosting

  1. For the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners. Whisk the flour, baking soda, nutmeg and salt together in a medium bowl.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one at a time and then the vanilla, beating until smooth. Reduce the mixer speed to low and beat in half the flour mixture until just combined. Then add the sour cream, and then the rest of the flour. Beat until well combined, taking care not to over mix. Stir in the chopped apples.
  3. Divide the batter between prepared muffin tin, filling them 1/2 way full. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the tops spring back when pressed gently, about 20 minutes. Cool the cupcakes in the tin on a rack for 10 minutes then remove and cool completely on the rack.
  4. For the frosting: Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 5 to 7 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl occasionally. Add the marshmallow cream, milk, vanilla and salt and beat on low speed until blended. Increase the mixer speed to high and beat until fluffy and thick, 1 to 2 minutes. Pipe or spread the frosting on the tops of the cupcakes.

Categories in this Recipe

  • 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.
  • Dessert – Dessert (/dɪˈzɜːrt/) is a course that concludes a meal. The course consists of sweet foods, such as confections, and possibly a beverage such as dessert wine and liqueur. In some parts of the world, such as much of Central Africa and West Africa, and most parts of China, there is no tradition of a dessert course to conclude a meal.The term dessert can apply to many confections, such as biscuits, cakes, cookies, custards, gelatins, ice creams, pastries, pies, puddings, macaroons, sweet soups, tarts and fruit salad. Fruit is also commonly found in dessert courses because of its naturally occurring sweetness. Some cultures sweeten foods that are more commonly savory to create desserts.
