Apple and Cinnamon Cupcakes

 


Blackberry, apple, and cinnamon are a sublime combination in these pretty little cupcakes.  Studded with chunks of tender apple and warmly spiced with cinnamon, their moist, crumbly, melt-in-the-mouth taste and texture are offset perfectly by the sweet, sticky soured cream frosting.

Ingredients:

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 eating apple, peeled, cored, and diced

To Decorate:

  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • about 1 cup confectioner’s sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • about 36 blackberries

a 12-cup cupcake pan, lined with paper liners, makes 12

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until pale and creamy, then gradually beat in the egg.  Stir in the sour cream.  Combine the flour, baking soda, and cinnamon and sift into the mixture.  Fold in, along with the apple.

Spoon the mixture into the paper liners and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes until risen and golden and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

To decorate, put the sour cream and sugar in a bowl and beat together for about 1 minute until smooth and creamy.  Add a little more sugar if the frosting is not thick enough.  Stir in the lemon juice.  Spoon the frosting on top of each one with two or three blackberries.
