Sticky Toffee Apple Cupcakes

Toffee Apple Cupcakes Recipe Close UpRemember, remember! The fifth of November, 
The Gunpowder treason and plot!

The 5th November is Guy Fawkes night in the UK, an annual celebration of Guy Fawkes’ failed plot to blow up the House of Lords with gunpowder and kill King James the First. Every year we now celebrate the survival of the King with large bonfires, topped with a burning “Guy Fawkes”, alongside fireworks displays.

Toffee Apple Cupcakes Recipe On MatThis year will be the first bonfire night that I shall miss and apart from the fireworks I won’t be too disappointed. You see I love the fireworks and all the celebrations, but what I really remember about Bonfire Night is standing outside, in the dark of the night and being cold, VERY COLD, and sometimes even wet – yuk!

So the best bit about bonfire night for me is the food – not surprisingly!!! It’s a night for pigging out on comfort foods, such as chilli, baked potatoes, and toasted marshmallows, and for some reason, toffee apples. My last post featured a Slow Cooker White Chicken Chilli Recipe that is perfect for serving on bonfire night. But today I wanted to indulge my sweet tooth and share this fantastic Toffee Apple Cupcake Recipe that is not only delicious, but provides a more tooth-friendly alternative to traditional toffee apples.

As with all of the Arugula & Rocket food blog recipes, this is simple to make, using a box of carrot cake mix as the main component for the cupcakes, but adding fresh chopped apple and cinnamon for extra yumminess!

Toffee Apple Cupcakes Recipe Ingredients

Pre-heat the oven to 350ºF, then start by making the carrot cake mix – simply follow the instructions on the box! Then add and combine the chopped apple and cinnamon – yum!

Toffee Apple Cupcakes Recipe Cake Mix

Place 12 paper cupcake cases into a muffin pan and divide the cupcake mixture into each of the cupcake cases.

Place your cupcakes in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked at the centre. Once cooked, place the cupcakes on a wire rack and leave to cool.

Now for the easy peasy toffee topping – it’s magically delicious!!! All you need to do, is put the caramels and milk into a saucepan and place on the hob on a low heat until the caramels are completely melted. It shouldn’t take any longer than 20 minutes. Just make sure you stir the mixture frequently to prevent the caramels from sticking to the bottom of the pan. And that’s all there is to it – kapow!!!

Now place the wire rack, with the cupcakes, on top of a non-stick baking mat and drizzle with the sticky toffee topping. Add a sprinkling of crushed nuts and insert a lolly pop stick at the centre of each cake, et voila – sticky toffee apple cupcakes! Your Guy Fawkes masterpieces will be ready to be devoured by your cold and hungry Bonfire Night party guests!
