I am thinking about making some sort of Caramel Apple cupcake, but I do not have a recipe. There must be some out there and I am guessing a few different variations anyone have any ideas?

Fresh Apple Cake
Nancy Stewart-Glenwood Springs

1C. Vegetable Oil
3C. Flour
1C. Chopped Nuts(Walnuts)
2t. Vanilla
3C. Chopped, Peeled Apples
2 C. Sugar-2T.
2 Eggs
1 t. Soda
½ t. Salt

Combine oil and sugar. Add well-beaten eggs and vanilla. Measure and sift together flour, salt and soda. Add dry ingredients to first mixture. Stir in chopped fresh apples and nuts and combine thoroughly. Pour into tube or a 13 x 9 pan. Bake at 300degrees until done.*

Caramel Glaze for Fresh Apple cake:
1 C. Light Brown Sugar
½ C. Butter
1 t. Vanilla
¼ C. Evaporated Milk

Place butter and sugar in double boiler and allow to melt; blend well, add evaporated milk(or could use cream) and bring to a full boil. Cool and add vanilla. Spread evenly over cake.

*The first time I made this I do not remember if I baked it at 300. I dont think I did. I made a 9 x 13 and it took about an hour and a half and I believe I baked it at 325. The second time I made it I made it into cupcakes and I started out at 300 and it was taking forever so I bumped it up to 325 and finished them. I think that they still took close to an hour to bake and these were your standard size cupcakes.

I was wrong it was a 11" x 15" pan not a 9x13.

I started with this minus the strawberries:

I used 3/4 cup sugar instead of 1 cup and 1/4 cup brown sugar
Instead of the 2/3 cup strawberries I shredded an apple and got about that amount.
I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon (or more)

I used dulce de leche in the center for filling
Vanilla cream cheese frosting with dulce de leche on top.

It was very good.

OsGirl: Did you puree your apples too once you shredded them? TIA.

I tried a recipe on the Cupcake Bakeshop Blog, and it was really yummy.

I used the cheese grater and probably because of how liquidy the apple already is, there was no need to puree. I thought I would have to, but it scraped off almost like a puree.
