Joanne and Adam Gallagher, from InspiredTaste.Net, just came up with the most delectable fall-themed cupcakes known to man! They call them Apple Cinnamon Caramel Cupcakes and not only do they look amazing, they’re a piece of cake to make!

Follow the steps below to indulge in the one of fall’s best treats.

All You Need Is:

an eight-hole metal muffin tin

large bowl

one standard kitchen knife

carrot peeler

large saucepan

coconut oil

4 medium-sized Granny Smith apples


1 fresh lemon

¼ c. flour

¼ c. brown sugar

¼ c. nuts

2 Tbsp. melted butter

pre-packaged cinnamon rolls


Heat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Grease each cup of your muffin tin with a thin layer of coconut oil.

Step 1: Take your four medium-sized green apples and cut them into small cubes and place in large bowl.

Step 2:   Use your carrot peeler to slice the skin off all of your apples.

Step 3:  Cut the lemon in half and use it to to cover your apple slice with the acidic juice to keep them from browning while you prepare the rest.

Step 4:  Toss cinnamon on top of the apples and throw the whole mixture into a large saucepan over low heat, stirring gently for about 5-10 minutes, until fully warm. If your apples begin looking dry, add light drops  of coconut oil, and add the remainder of the lemon. Continue stirring.

Step 5:  Once the apples are warm and slightly browned, remove from heat and set aside to cool.

Step 6:  Mix together flour, brown sugar, nuts (of your choice, though we recommend walnuts or almonds), and softened butter. Combine until crumbly.

Step 7:   Remove your pre-packaged cinnamon rolls and flatten them to be about ¼ ” thick each and round.

Step 8:   Press the flattened dough into each oiled indent in your cupcake pan.

Step 9:   Cover with the chopped apples.

Step 10:  Sprinkle your flour, brown sugar, nuts and butter mixture on top or the apples evenly, pressing lightly.

Step 11:  Slide tray into oven and cook for 10-12 minutes.

Step 12:  Allow cupcakes to cool.

Steph 13:  Now your delicious cupcakes are ready to serve with whip cream and caramel sauce drizzled on top. Yum!
