Caramel Apple Cupcakes Recipe


Preschool, Elementary, Tweens, Teens, Adult

What You Will Need For Cupcakes

  • 4 cups apples, chopped fine (about 4 medium apples)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup Crisco®
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 24-30 Cupcake liners
  • 24-30 wooden craft sticks


Preheat oven to 350°. Combine apples and sugar and let stand until sugar is partly liquified (about 10 minutes). In separate bowl, beat eggs slightly, then add oil and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients together. Alternately add dry ingredients and apple mixture to bowl with eggs. Stir in pecans. Pour into lined muffin tins (about 1/2 full). Bake approximately 18 minutes. Cool.

What You Will Need For Creamy Caramel Topping

  • 1 14 oz. can of Eagle® Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Instructions For Creamy Caramel Topping

Cooking the Eagle Brand milk for several hours results in a rich, creamy caramel. There are two ways you can make it. This takes a bit of time, but you can make it ahead and store in in the refrigerator for several days.

OVEN METHOD: Pour 1 can Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk into a 9-inch pie plate. Cover with aluminum foil; place in larger shallow pan. Fill larger pan with hot water. Bake at 425° for 1 1/2 hours or until thick and caramel-colored.

Spread caramel topping on top of cupcakes and sprinkle pecans on top. Stick a wooden stick down in the top for decoration.

Yield: 2 dozen cupcakes
