Flour Friday: Cupcakes

I’m going to visit my mother for the weekend and I’m going to surprise her and my sisters with these cupcakes. (Unless they see this blog post before I get there, then it won’t be a surprise.)

You can also make muffins with this recipe by skipping the frosting part. Actually you may want to make less frosting anyway, I still have about half of the frosting in the fridge.


Apple Cupcakes

2 dl wheat flour
1 dl rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
0,75 dl sugar
1,75 dl oat or soy milk
0,5 dl oil
2 dl diced apple

100 g margarine, room temperature
3,5 dl icing sugar
1 small apple finely grated (3 tbsp)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla sugar
cinnamon for decorating

Combine flour, oats, baking powder, vanilla sugar, cinnamon and sugar in a bowl. Add milk, oil and apples and stir to mix. Line a muffin tin with paper muffin liners. You can also bake the cupcakes without paper liners. If you don’t have a muffin tin, put paper liners on a baking sheet, but use two paper liners for each cupcake, put the liners one inside another to make them stronger. Divide the batter to liners, you can fill them almost full. The recipe makes about 9 cupcakes, or more or less depending the size of your muffin tin / liners. Bake in 175 Celsius degrees about 20 minutes. Use a matchstick to check if they’re ready: if the matchstick comes clean out of the cupcake they’re ready. Allow to cool before decorating.

Beat margarine and icing sugar with electric mixer until creamy. Stir in grated apple, lemon juice and vanilla sugar. Put the frosting to the piping bag and pipe on your cupcakes. Dust with little bit of cinnamon.
