Apple Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting

A few weeks ago I went over to my friends place, and we get together we bake! Her friend had sent her website with cupcake recipes so we decided to pick some from there. The website Ming Makes Cupcakes, has 33 cupcake recipes and they all look amazing. We each decided to pick one, and then we went to the store to get the ingredients. The first one we made is Cupcake 10 - Apple Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting.

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2  tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Pinch of cloves
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup oil
2 cups peeled, diced apples

1. Mix flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves.
2. In a separate bowl, beat together sugar, egg, and oil. Add apples. Add flour mixture and beat until smooth.
3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean

Ingredients for Caramel Frosting
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla


1. Melt butter, sugar, and cream in heavy saucepan over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil, and reduce to a simmer.
2. Continue cooking and stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
3. Frost cupcakes when cooled.

We had fun decorating these cupcakes. We think that we did not let the caramel frosting sit long enough because it was really runny and it got all over the place. It tasted delicious so we didn't care.
