Apple Cider Cupcakes

In one of my Picture my Week posts I had shared how Rosebud had made Apple Cider cupcakes, and got quite a few requests for the recipe. I decided today seems like a great day to finally share it.

Apple Cider Cupcakes

½ cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup apple cider
1-2/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt

Combine butter and sugar, add eggs and vanilla and mix until thoroughly blended. Set aside. In a separate bowl combine remaining four dry ingredients. Alternate adding dry mixture and apple cider to butter/sugar mixture, beating well after each addition.

Scoop into cupcake tins, lined with cupcake wrappers, of course.

Bake at 350ยบ for 17-19 minutes. Until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.


1 cup butter
½ cup brown sugar
3 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla

Mix butter and brown sugar. Add remaining ingredients and beat until light and fluffy. Frost cooled cupcakes. You can garnish with half an apple slice if you prefer.


  1. I had to try these this afternoon! They are really good! The cake is so good. We think they would be good with a cream cheese icing. We thought they could be like a muffin without any icing though. The icing was pretty sweet for us and I couldn't get my brown sugar to mix so the icing was gritty. I am sure it was my fault though. This recipe will definitely be made again! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Oooh ... I'm thinking a cinnamon cream cheese frosting would be excellent!

      Glad you liked the cake.

  2. We just went to our first cider pressing yesterday. I think we will be making these this week!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
