I was fixing dinner and was trying to find somedry ranch dressing mix when I found all these ingredients! I didn't know what I was going to make for a dessert so I just thought I would create something and low and behold I was told it was the best thing I've ever made. It's not too sweet and isn't a heavy dessert. My neighbor came over right after I had fix them and I gave her two for her and her husband, and an hour later I get a phone call saying it's the best thing they've ever tasted! So I thought I'd share it with all of you and hopefully you get the same results!

How to Make Pumpkin Apple Surprise Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat your oven at 350 and spray your pan or put in your cupcake liners.
  2. Fix your cake mix according to your box. After you've mixed up the cake batter, add a half of a can of your pumpkin and mix well. Pour into your cake pan(s).
  3. While waiting for your cake to cook, put your icing, the other half a can of pumpkin and two spoon fulls of your Apple pie filling into but mixer and use your whisk attachment. Mix on low speed at first and gradually go to the highest. This will make the apples smaller and easier to spread on the tops of your cakes.
  4. Once your cakes have finished let them cool to the point where you can handle them. If you have a cupcake plunger use that or use a spoon to scoop out the center. (I realize it's tempting to eat the centers but don't, but if you you must, just cut off the top portion and set it aside) Once you're cakes have been cored, fill them with the apple pie filling and then place the tops that you didn't eat, back on the cake.
  5. Don't frost your cakes until ready to serve but if you're taking them somewhere make sure you keep them cool or even Refrigerate the frosted caked about an hour before transporting them.
