Delicious Apple Cinnamon Cupcakes

                                 Apple and Cinnamon is a classic combination which is used to make cupcakes n muffins. The apples taste great spiced up with cinnamon in this delicious light cupcakes. These can be prepared really quick. You just need 10 min to prep them and pop the in the oven for 20 min, while you have your dinner. They are just right hot and ready to be devoured  for post dinner dessert. Oh yes, they are that simple to make.
                           Neil is surly enjoying his time in kitchen with me when I cook nowadays. He pushes chair near kitchen top while I am cooking and instructs me how to cook. He will ask me multiple questions as well... why you do this? what is this? can I eat? when can I eat? Why can't I eat now?..
           Would like to share one of neil's recipes with you, Try at your own risk ;) he says. " Kanda tak,, cut cut cut kar, Thoda tomato pan tak, cut cut cut kar, aata Strawberry tak,, yummmmmmmmmmm ( he pauses to enjoy the taste of fresh strawberries in his mind) , aata Kaju tak, khup tak".....

    He also loves to leaf through my recipe books and tells me which all recipes he would like to eat. He is waiting for his Baba's birthday wherein he wants a large "Mater Ccocolate Cake" He is currently completely smitten by CARS movie and he is all the time talking about Mcqueen, Mater, Mcmissile n Holly Shiftwell.
 Neil Loved these apple cupcakes and was all eating them on his own and appreciating them...

                          In this cupcake recipe, I have added chunks of apple to the batter, they tasted sweet and soft. If you don't like biting into apple pieces in the cupcakes, grate the apple and add to the batter. Again as i said earlier apple n cinnamon is a classic combination, but you can have fun trying different combos, apple would taste with all spice or nutmeg and pear.....
