  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup vanilla sugar (see Cook's Note)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 large Gala or other baking apple, peeled, cored, and finely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup apple butter
  • Special equipment: 2 (12-cup) muffin pans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 24 muffin tins with paper liners.
  2. Using a hand mixer or standing mixer, cream the butter and vanilla sugar together until fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time and vanilla extract, beating until smooth.
  3. Combine the flour, nutmeg, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Add half the flour mixture to the creamed butter, then add the sour cream, and then the rest of the flour. Beat until well combined, taking care not to over mix. Gently fold in the chopped apples.
  4. Divide batter between prepared muffin tins, filling them 1/2 way full. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cupcakes comes out clean and the tops spring back when pressed gently, about 20 minutes. Cool the cupcakes in the tin on a rack for 10 minutes then remove from the tin and cool completely.
  5. Put apple butter into a small pastry bag with an open tip Squeeze a small amount into the center of each cupcake. Continue cooling completely. Then frost with icing.
