Green Apple Cupcakes ○ So soft & crumbly ○

Another great bake from "Easy Bake! By 梁家榕"

I had been wanting to try this recipe for a while but I hadn't had any green apples in my fridge till today...:-p

As usual, a no-fuss recipe, yeilds about 3 standard size ramekins.
Instead of using plain flour with baking powder, I had replaced it with self-raising flour. 
I might reduced the sugar in future as I think it is a little sweet for me. 
A soft and crumbly Green Apple Cupcake is waiting for you.
I had sprinkled some cinnamon powder on top and it gave the cupcakes a very great fragrance...
Inside the cupcakes were filled with rum-soak diced apples.
And if could see the soft texture of these Green Apple Cupcakes.
Vivian, this is another recipe that you might like too:-) 
Recipe as adapted from Easy Bake! By 梁家榕

1/2 Green Apple, diced
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp rum
Diced the green apples into cubes, add in the sugar and the rum. Using low heat, simmer the apples until soft. Set aside for later use.

1/2 Green Apple
Cut the apples into slices. Set aside for the topping of the cupcakes.

75g butter, softened
60g sugar (I used 50g)
1 egg
100g plain flour
(I used self-raising and omitted baking powder)
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp vanilla essence ( I used 1/2 tsp)
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp milk
some  cinnamon powder (optional)

Cream butter & sugar until white & creamy. Add in the egg and beat until well combined.
Add in the sieved flour, mix until well blended. Add in the vanilla essence, lemon juice & milk. Mix well.
Coat the ramekins with butter & dust with some icing sugar. Knock out the ecvess sugar.
Scoop 1/3 of the batter into each ramekins. Filled them with the diced apples and topped the remaining batter to about 80% filled. Dust with some cinnamon powder on top.
Bake in a preheated oven of 180C for abt 35-40 mins.
Remove from oven to cool. Remove from ramekins and best to serve warm.
