Apple Cheese Cupcakes 苹果艺士小蛋糕
I love apples in bakes. This is another easy recipe green apples diced with cream cheese (adapted from the Yum Yum magazine 新新饮食). These small cakes are not light but they taste so wonderful with a little sweetness of the soft diced apples together with a sprinkling of the top desiccated coconut. If I were to bake this again, I would like to add the diced apples into the batter instead of cooking them to give more crunch to the cakes. I’m sure it’ll taste awesome too 🙂
As Christmas is only about 5 weeks away, why not add this into your Christmas Bakes?

wow, apple + cream cheese = cinnamon is a great combination !
need your advice, if i want to make soft and fluffy cupcake/muffin, i just change the plain flour to cake flour ?
Hi Helen, You should use a chiffon cake recipe for soft and fluffy cake.
Ann, I love apple in bakes too but never add desiccated coconut for topping.

Soft and fluffy cakes
Your apple cheese cupcakes are beautifully baked. Must be delicious with the cream cheese and apple inside.
These look so delicious. I drink green apple juice but have not try baking them. Will try it out soon.
ooh, i like the idea of desiccated coconut on top of the cupcakes…. it will definitely add texture to the yummy bake!!! like like!
Ann, these are so delicious! Apples in bakes are always so good.
Ann, these apple cheese muffins look super! I love the coconut topping too.
I'm No. 4, still have enough cupcakes to grab from there! I seldom eat green apples but always heard that they are much better than red apples.
Jessie, no worry..No. 4 also have…hahaa
I think green apples are good for baking as they are crunchy type. Not like the red apples are rather mushy.
Apple muffin day for a great monday,Ann's kitchen always full of yummy food….yummy
