These Apple Fritter Cupcakes are the perfect way to kick off the fall season. Bursting with apples & cinnamon in a moist little cupcake. Everything you love about fall.
It’s FALL!!! (or nearly there) Can you tell I’m excited? I love baking for fall. All the apple & cinnamon recipes just make me happy. My family loves it too. So I thought I would break out the ol’ KitchenAid Stand Mixer & whip up some Apple Fritter Cupcakes. They are really simple to make, line your tins, whip up your batter, fill your wrappers & add a little dollop of pie filling & bake. That simple!
Fall baking doesn’t have to be complicated. But it’s always delicious & makes the house smell amazing. Which is why you should jump in & start baking!!! While you’re at it you should enter this AWESOME GIVEAWAY….

That’s a pretty fabulous prize! Have you seen those new KitchenAid black & stainless steel appliances. I’m swooning. They are so sleek & luxurious. Plus they would go nicely with my red mixer – even though it’s knocking on 15 years old now. Someday I can upgrade that to a new professional line KitchenAid Stand Mixer.
Just thinking of new applicances gives me motivation to make some more apple recipes. I know the family is already begging me to make more of these cupcakes. They are so delicious.
