Yield: 1 dozen
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 28 minutes

Moist delicious apple cinnamon spice cupcakes topped with a creamy Cinnamon Apple Frosting. Cupcakes that simply scream Fall. You will be so glad you tried these Caramel Apple Spice Cupcakes!


For Cupcakes:

For Frosting

  • ¾ cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3-4 tablespoons Green Apple Torani syrup


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners and set aside. 
    2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
    3. In a small saucepan, over medium-low heat, bring milk to a simmer. Do not allow to come to a boil. When milk is at a simmer, add tea bags, cover and remove from the heat. Set aside and allow to steep for 20 minutes. Remove the tea bags and throw them away. Set milk aside.
    4. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar on medium high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until well blended. Add vanilla bean paste and beat an additional 1 minute.
    5. Stir in the flour and mix just until combined. Add ⅔ cup of tea milk, combining just until milk in incorporated.
    6. Spoon the batter into cupcake liners about ⅔ full. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cupcakes comes out clean. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.


    In a large bowl, beat together butter, powdered sugar, cinnamon and Torani Green Apple syrup until the frosting is the desired consistency. If the syrup seems too thick, add a little more syrup. If it seems too runny or thin, add a little more powdered sugar.

    Top cupcakes with frosting, an apple slice and complete with a drizzle of Torani Caramel Sauce.
