For the cupcakes:

    • Start by making the apple mixture. Peel, core and then chop the apples into little squares.
    • Place in a large saucepan with enough water to cover them and simmer for 5-7 minutes until soft, and then leave until cool.
    • Cream together butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy.
    • Add the eggs, then vanilla extract until combined.
    • Add the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and gently mix until combined.
    • Carefully fold in the apple mix.
    • Spoon the mixture into a lined cupcake tin.
    • Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

Next make the crumble topping!

    • In a large bowl, rub together the butter, flour, cinnamon and vanilla until nice and crumbly, and then stir in the sugar.
    • Spread the crumble mix onto a lined baking tray and bake for 5-10 minutes until just golden.

For the icing:

    • Beat together the butter and brown sugar with the cinnamon and vanilla extract, for 5-7 minutes until fully combined and light and fluffy.
    • Add the icing sugar a little bit at a time and continue to beat on a low speed.
    • Add the milk a tablespoon at a time until the icing is light and creamy but stiff enough to hold it’s shape.

Building the cupcakes:

    • Once the cupcakes and crumble are fully cooled, spoon the icing into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle.
    • Spread a small amount of icing on the top of each cupcake, and add the crumble mixture.
    • Using the piping bag, pipe a small swirl of icing onto the top of the crumble on each cupcake. Top with a small sprinkle of crumble, and enjoy!
