Italian Apple Cupcakes
I’ve never heard or tried Italian Apple Cupcakes before not until when I saw this recipe prepared by an Italian Chef from a Chinese magazine I weekly. What attracted me to the recipe is that not much effort is required to make these cupcakes. You only need to slice the apple with skin intact and mix them in with the batter. So here you are, this is the Italian Apple Cupcakes that I made yesterday. My verdict – the cake was excellent especially served warm! The cake was moist and soft and you can feel the crunch and tangy taste of the packed apple slices with every bite. It was not too sweet or rich and I’m sure that if you were to try it out you’ll be delighted with the delicious taste.

These cupcake really good! Lots of apple layers. Bookmarked. Thanks for sharing.
they look lovely Ann!
thanks for sharing this discovery of yours! the photos are great too!
Wow a new one for me and lucky for me I didnt miss it… fabulous photos and recipe!
Ann, this is really soft, moist and good! Except my presentation is not as pretty as yours – I don't get the spiral layer within the cake. Did you layer the apple slices piece by piece? Thanks for sharing this recipe!
Thanks for trying 🙂 I just spooned in the sliced apples like the picture shown.
These cupcakes sound delicious!! They're so pretty too!

Thank you Rebecca. Can't wait to see your post 🙂

I think I'll have to make this soon. I have some lovely Honeycrisp Minnesotan apples sitting on my counter and I am wondering what to do with them. I like that these cupcakes have lots of apples in them. Looks very yummy!
Hi Biren, Really hope you'll give this a try. Thanks Alice 🙂
those look amazing Anne. I could eat the screen. Definately bookmarking this one. Have more apples than I know what to do with at the moment. Maybe Oliver would like to make these over the weekend…
It looks gorgeous with that apple slices on top and those layers of sliced crunchy apple inside – just perfect !
I've never heard of this too! Looks and sounds yummy! Love the layers 🙂
Ann, this looks yummy and easy 🙂
This is a beautiful recipe and I love the way you have presented it. I'm don't have a sweet tooth so this kind of savoury sweet treats is down my alley! Thanks for sharing!
Wow, very generous on the apples..a mouthful in every bite! I'm sure those granny smiths makes it less sweet and more apple aroma…yum!
I really like the look and this recipe!
Wow, apples in every bite, just like biting into an apple! Looks wonderful!
