APPLEFULLY LOADED CUPPY CAKES................






The air has changed again--oh the winds of change,its been a very warm afternoon ,too hot to work in the kitchen ,so the best was to complete my assigments but somehow i felt more inclined to work towards completing my apple iron cuppycake challenge,will i glide thru this or are my ideas too much to blend well??
Iron Cupcake Challenge sure has an amazing story to tell and has entered its second year. The bakers sure have some gorgeous creations that speak volumes.
And the prize providers below are so dang cute & generous...wowowowo...an excellent goody bag that we would all love to recieve


Our Generous IronCupcake:Earth Prize Providers:


The Demy™ by Key Ingredient
Hello, Cupcake by Karen Tack & Alan Richardson
Bella Cupcake Couture
Cupcake Stackers by Gourmac

Beautiful Baking Liners by Vestli House
Sweet Cuppin' Cakes Bakery & Cupcakey Supply
Its evening & sitted on my low all time fav stool i look around below from our hill-top residence,the villages below look a sleepy smoky lot from our balcony or is it the dew here? I hope so & this time welcoming a cool night to dream about iron cuppys and all the great prize providers ,as the sun sets to a beautiful hue ,i ruminate!

I have a big big wishlist that grows bigger ,one of the main reson being my home's in a state that aint very home -baking products friendly ,like cupcake liners have been eluding me since jan now & so are cookie cutters & decorating nozzles & everything *777 on my wishlist!!!!sigh...sigh :-)))
I dont know if im good enough to join the ranks of the iron cup challenge but as a new blogger &almost new baker(began this jan after a long hiatus)i doubt i would stand or fit in there but this months ingredient is apple & i  always loved a good apple pie but we talking cuupys here,arent we?

My creation as of now is a good base of caramalized apple,an apple pie filling filling inbetween ,an apple-banana batter & butterry struessal topping with nuts &/or choco-chips?Now these will have to surely be bigger than those tiny cupcakes and i know not how sucessfull these will be but try i shall & am working on putting by a recipe here.Was even thinking of apple mince meat for the filling but would that be gilding the lily truly?
I love the apple pie filling ,this is what i usually do for a fruity tinned style fruit coctail for a dessert topping & its truly delicious

FOR THE CARAMEL APPLES
heat a tbh butter +2 tbh sugar till sugar starts to melt & add 2apples sliced.Cook for 5 mins till brown & sauce a rich caramel.
OR
saute 2 apples in 2tbh butter.add 1.5 tbh brandy with juice,1 tbh brown sugar & cinnamon

FOR THE APPLE PIE FILLING
adapted fromFrom The Pie and Pastry Bible, by Rose Levy Beranbaum
3 MEDIUM baking apples,peeled, cored, and sliced 1/4-inch thick
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/8cup granulated sugar
1 whole vanilla bean
pinch of cinnamon powder
2 tablespoons salted butter
1/2 tablespoon + 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
In a large bowl, combine the apples, lemon juice, sugars, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt and toss to mix. Allow the apples to macerate at room temperature for a minimum of 30 minutes and a maximum of 3 hours.
Transfer the apples and their juices to a colander suspended over a bowl to capture the liquid. The mixture will release at least 1/2 cup of liquid.
In a small saucepan (preferably nonstick), over medium-high heat, boil down this liquid, with the butter, to about 1/3 cup (a little more if you started with more than 1/2 cup of liquid), or until syrupy and lightly caramelized. Swirl the liquid but do not stir it.
 (Alternatively, spray a 4-cup heatproof measure with nonstick vegetable spray, add the liquid and butter, and boil it in the microwave, 6 to 7 minutes on high.) Meanwhile, transfer the apples to a bowl and toss them with the cornstarch until all traces of it have disappeared.
Pour the syrup over the apples, tossing gently. (Do not be concerned if the liquid hardens on contact with the apples; it will dissolve during baking.)

FOR THE SRUESSAL CRUMBLE TOPPING
1/2cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup dark-brown sugar or white for lighter color
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces-i think the butter should be reduced here
1/2 cup roasted nuts and chips(optional)


In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon. Add butter & pulse till crumbs form.
Add chocochips & nuts & combine well.


-a few pointers-the butter should be cold for this for a nice crunchy topping
-dont over mix it,if the butters geting warm ,refrigerate it.
-adding any liquid to a topping doesnt give u the crumble texture

FOR THE CUPPY'S
adapted from cake central-the bestest part about this recipe is that it says its an old polish recipe from one of the best bakeries in Milwaukee!wowow-this has to be good i thought
and sure enough it is ,delicious and super moist & the filling shines thru & heightens the apple in the cuppy while the banana heightens the overall sweetness.
for the banana i used a lond deep yellow(baked a few too while was baking these cuppys)local v sweet variety called 'bananas de moira'-they are simply the best to my world!

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
75 grams BUTTER
3/4 cup white sugar
1egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup ripe bananas, mashed
1 apple – peeled, cored and shredded


Instructions


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift together the flour, baking soda, (i used self raising flour)Set aside.
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg well, then stir in the vanilla and buttermilk. Beat in the flour mixture, mixing just until incorporated.
3.Fold in the mashed bananas and shredded apples.

TO ASSEMBLE
1)line with cupcake papers ,12 holed muffin/cuppy cake tin.
2)add a caramalized apple slice to each as a base.
3) fill 2/3 rds with cake battter ,some filling and more cake batter.
4)Sprinkle some struessal topping over.Place heart cut out caramalized in butter,apple slices on some.
5)Bake till they spring back to touch.



AN APPLE A DAY KEEPS THE DOC AWAY,

BUT OFCOURSE IF THE DOC IS HANDSME(&SINGLE) MAKE AN APPLE CUPPY TO BRIGHTEN HIS DAY!!!!
ROSY RED HUES,
SMOOTH SHINY THEY LOOK,
STARING BACK AT U,
OH CAN I HAVE THOSE FEW?



I FROSTED A FEW WITH MY CREAM CHEESE BUTTER CREAM AS I CALL IT-
Lemme expalin how-usually a cream cheese frosting has the ratio of 1:2:3(roughly)of butter,cream cheese & icing sugar.well i make more of a butter cream kinda ,ie equal amount of butter & cream cheese & double the amount of confectioners sugar with good vanilla extract.
AND ALL THE VOTING HAPPENS RIGHT HERE SO DO HOP BY....






A YUMMY LUSCIOUS BASE OF CARAMALIZED APPLE SLICE ,TOPPED WITH THE BANANA-APPLE CUPPY CAKE BATTER, A DELICIOUS TANGY SWEET PIE FILLING IN BETWEEN,& A CRUMBLY CRUNCHY STRUESSAL TOPPING.AND SOME TOPPED WITH HEART CUT OUT,CARAMALIZED IN BUTTER,APPLE SLICES.



FROSTED SOME WITH A CREAMY & SMOOTH CREAM CHEESE BUTTER CREAM....DELICIOUS WITH ICE CREAM-AS IF EATING AN APPLE PIE RIGHT OUTA THE CUPPY CAKE...

IF U WANN THE CUPPY CAKE TO BE MORE CHEESE CAKKEY ,THAN CAKKEY CAKKEY,PUDDING LIKE(love that texture),JUST DOUBLE UP THE FRUIT PULP FOR THE CUPPY CAKE BATTER.

HOPE HAVE DONE IT ALL CORECT-HAVE BEEN ACTUALL IN TEARS COZ BLOGGER & FLICKER ARE JUST MAKING ME CRY SINCE 22ND(2days for my time)-YEAH I HAD 2 NIGHTS OF NO SLEEP +HAD TO STAY HOME A WHOLE DAY TO DO SO BUT NOW AS I SEE THE POST READY I SMILE...AND THINK ,ITS WORTH IT....SOUNDS LIKE LABOUR & UR BUNDLE OF JOY RIGHT???

BUT THEN HOW WOULD I KNOW?
and ur bundle of joy is incomparable ,yes!!!


And as evening descends again with a glorious sunset ,along with our espresso,as we sit at our sit out,taking in the beauty of the glowing sun,we also have tiny little apple pies ie our applefully loaded cuppys...delish with vanilla icecream too!!!
