Apple Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

Apple cinnamon roll cupcakes. Fall flavors packed into in a moist cupcake. These really taste like warm, gooey apple cinnamon rolls!

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 ends. Hopefully, it results in daddy daughter bonding time and not Bruce Willis being dropped in by helicopter guns blazing.

If it does resort to guns blazing, I can calm the beast with our apple cinnamon roll cupcakes. Because food is the language of peace and love.

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 over all time of a project before deciding on which one I will make on Daddy/Daughter night.

Making these cinnamon roll cupcakes was a long project for a weeknight, and it required a lot of clean up – but they were worth it. 🙂 Enjoy!

I hate how weeknight nights are so short. My dad and I enjoy being in the kitchen together. Your experience seems similar to what I have with my mom. It works...some of the time. These little sweet treats look delicious. I love the cinnamon roll idea in an individual cup. Super cute!

These look amazing and I'm glad you were able to bond with your father without destroying the kitchen! :o) I look forward to this becoming a new series!
