Apple and cinnamon cupcakes

2 tsp cinnamon
4 tsp vegetable oil
4 tsp baking powder
250g caster sugar
320g plain flour
50g unsalted butter, melted
2 lightly beaten eggs
175ml buttermilk
2 peeled finely diced apples

Turn the oven to 175 degrees (350F). Line a cupcake tin with paper liners (this recipe makes 12 decent sized cupcakes)

In a bowl combine the sifted dry ingredients.

In a large bowl beat the liquid ingredients until well combined. Add the dry ingredients and beat until nearly combined. Stir in the apples - careful not to overmix!

Bake for 20 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes, and then remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack. Top with brown sugar frosting. These keep for up to 2 days or freeze (without icing for up to 3 months).

Apple and cinnamon always makes the best combination. These cupcakes look fantastic and I can't wait to try them for myself :) - Cathy Pieroz at Ray White Alexandra Hills
