Apple Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

You know what doesn’t make for fun food blogging? A week of rainy weather. :( It’s been so dark every day that no picture is even worth taking. We got lucky though, I haven’t seen any really bad flooding or damage from the rain like a lot of places I am hearing about.


Last night I decided to try to cook with my father. Yeah, that’s right, I was feeling like a kamikaze dive bomber. I love my daddy – and we both love to cook – but if you put the two of us alone in a room together for more than 5 minutes, it’s mortal combat. Last night wasn’t so bad and we both agreed that we would like to try to make it a weekly event – after the fishing season. Hopefully, it results in daddy daughter bonding time and not Bruce Willis being dropped in by helicopter guns blazing.



I used a simple confectioner sugar glaze as we aren’t huge fans of fruit in my household. These smelled great, the apple wasn’t over powering and overall made a nice breakfast treat.


As hindsight is 20/20, in the future I will be looking at the oval all time of a project before deciding on which one I will make on Daddy/Daughter night. This was a long project for a weeknight an required a lot of clean up – but worth it. :) Enjoy!

  6. What a creative way for making cinnamon rolls. Just the perfect thing to make any breakfast extra special.

  7. Looks gooooood.

    I’m afraid of yeast, like afraid of it. I always feel like it won’t work for me, and I’ll have to throw away the batch.

    I need supervision!

  8. Hey Kita!
