Apple Cupcakes

Recipe for delicious Apple Cupcakes. I have fond memories of Mom making these cupcakes when I was a small girl. We loved them and were always asking her to make more. They are great anytime, however, especially delicious, when still warm.

This is a very easy cupcake recipe that my kids now love. It's great to see them enjoying my favorite childhood recipes. We always called them Apple Blossom Cupcakes but I really don't know where or why they were called that! A friend of Mom's gave her the recipe and we just kept using that name. We now just refer to them as apple cupcakes.

If you don't have time to stew a couple of apples, use store-bought apples. I tend to keep tins of stewed baby apples in the pantry so that I can make these apple cupcakes any time.

The stewed fruit seems to keep the cupcakes really moist and they keep well for a few days.
