Pretty sure this is the most Fall like dessert in the world. Apple Cider Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting is basically just a giant bite of Fall. You should definitely wear leggings, a vest, stand in a pile of crunchy leaves while at a pumpkin patch with a pumpkin spice latte in one hand and this cupcake in the other.

These are so good!! Super moist and full of that spicy, warm flavor of apple cider paired with my favorite brown sugar cream cheese frosting. Cream Cheese and Brown Sugar people! So good!

Ingredients

Cupcakes

⅔ cup brown sugar, packed

⅓ cup granulated sugar

½ teaspoon kosher salt

½ cup vegetable oil

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 large eggs

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 ½ cups all purpose flour

¾ cup apple cider

Frosting

2 (8-oz.) packages cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

23 cups powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixer, mix together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, vegetable oil, and vanilla.
  2. Mix in the eggs, one at a time, until fully incorporated. Add the baking soda, cinnamon, half of the flour, and half of the cider and mix to combine.
  3. Add the remaining flour and the rest of the cider and whisk until completely combined.
  4. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. Pour the batter into the muffin tin, filling each cup about ⅔ full.
  5. Bake for 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean. Let cool.

Frosting Instructions:

  1. Beat softened cream cheese, butter, and brown sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add vanilla, and beat until blended.
  2. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating at low speed until blended. Increase speed to high until smooth.

  1. Just letting you know, when you print the recipes, it cuts off some of the ingredients if part are on one page and part on the next.

  2. Actually, I think I figured out what I did wrong. I used reduced apple cider instead of regular from the container apple cider. I had made apple cider donuts about a month ago that called for reduced and I was using the same technique. I would try these again with just regular apple cider. Could I also use apple juice when it’s harder to find cider?
