Christmas cupcakes with apples – counting down to Christmas – day 4

Hello, I hope that you’ve had a relaxing weekend. Today, Christmas apple cupcakes appeared on our table. As you can see my decorating skills need some practice, but when it comes to the taste, I would say they are quite high on my cupcake scale.

They are fast to make, but as cupcakes usually are they are calorie heavy, so if you are currently on a diet, it would be better for you to leave this post while you still haven’t decided to make them 😉 Christmas cupcakes with apples



  • small spoon of cardamom
  • small spoon of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 50ml oil
  • 75ml natural yoghurt
  • 140g sugar
  • 75g brown sugar
  • 140g flour
  • 2 small spoons of baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 300g of apples

Cinnamon frosting

  • 200g of cream cheese
  • 100g sugar powder
  • 25g brown sugar (optional)
  • big spoon of cinnamon
  • small spoon of vanilla sugar
  • 5 – 8 big spoons of 30% cream



  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Mix yoghurt, oil, brown sugar, and sugar together.
  3. Add spices, eggs, flour, baking powder, and salt. In the end the mixture should be relatively thick.
  4. Put it in muffin forms and bake for 25-30 minutes until they have a golden colour.

Cinnamon frosting 

  1. When the cupcakes are cool start making the frosting. Beat the cream cheese for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix, keeping in mind that the frosting cannot be too thin. Adjust it by the amount of cream that you add to it.
  3. Get creative with spreading frosting on cupcakes! Christmas cupcakes with apples
