Apple Spice Cupcakes with Carmel Fudge Icing

I've already told you about the apple glut, so you'll understand when I say that I've been scanning every cookbook in sight for apple-based delights. It tuns out apples are very versatile! This recipe came straight from page 252 of Isa and Terry's Veganomicon. My mum makes a delicious apple cake that I've been missing out on since I went vegan so I was glad to see this recipe. Her apple dapple cake is baked in a tube-pan then covered in walnuts and a brown sugar glaze. The apples make for a very moist and flavorful cake. The frosting here is a penuche icing, a candy-like fudge so delicious and old-fashioned that you'll want to really load it on.

Aprons on, ladies and gents!


  1. yum! i plan to make a version of this for suki and beedle's halloween party on saturday.

  2. adam made these, and they were a hit! thank you for the tip!


  3. Agreed, they were amazing!! Moses ate most of the frosting off the top of his and my cupcakes, but i got a little bit, and even just the cupcakes alone were delicious. (This is Lisa V writing here, Natalie, love the blog).
