Apple Cinnamon Cupcakes

Updated: Jan 4, 2019

Disclaimer: I was given a Foodstirs Celebration Cupcake Baking Kit to create this recipe.

In honor of the arrival of fall, apple season and becoming a brand ambassador for Foodstirs, I decided to make some apple cinnamon cupcakes using one of the baking kits that Foodstirs offers. Foodstirs is a company that focuses on bringing families together to create memories through baking. They sell a variety of baking kits that consists of packaged mixes to make cookies, cakes, brownies and pancakes.

The baking kits contain basic baking ingredients that are organic, non-GMO, fair trade and also vegan. For this recipe I used the Celebration Cupcake Baking Kit which includes organic vanilla cake mix, organic vanilla frosting, cupcake liners, dye-free sprinkles and decorative flags. This kit along with all of the other Foodstirs kits have no artificial ingredients and no artificial dyes. You can follow the instructions on the box to make regular vanilla cupcakes or you can get creative and invent your own recipes which is what I did. I decided to incorporate apples and cinnamon to create a tasty treat for you to enjoy this fall. These are vegetarian cupcakes since the additional ingredients in this recipe I used contain animal by-products such as eggs and butter.

In a bowl add the organic vanilla mix, apple, cinnamon, butter, eggs, soy milk, coconut yogurt, vanilla extract and mix them together to form the batter. Pour the batter into the cupcake pan and bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. For the frosting, mix the organic vanilla frosting mix with soy milk and butter until smooth and creamy. Spread the frosting on top of each cupcake, sprinkle some cinnamon and enjoy!
