Sweet and appl-icious and tasting of fall.
- 3 tbsp apple cider
- 8 oz Neufchatel cheese
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar
- 1 1/3 cup flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup cider
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 small eggs
Preheat oven to 375, and place 12 cupcake liners in a cupcake baking tray.
In a food processor, combine Neufchatel, powdered sugar, and cider. Pulse till thoroughly blended, then set in refrigerator to chill.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, spices, and baking soda.
In a smaller bowl, whisk together cider, oil, sugar, and eggs until thoroughly blended.
Add liquid to the flour mix and combine thoroughly--the batter will be a little runny.
Pour the batter into the prepared cupcake pan and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely, then frost. Store in refrigerator.
