Hi friends!!! I was sitting idle thinking of something else for baking.I want to do something that will make cupcake cutest.:) I got an idea of making mini cupcakes.Aw so cute by baking and frosting mini cupcakes.It will be very delightful for kids :) I made an Egg-less Apple mini cupcake with cardamom grated apple butter cream :)

Its my own idea and made my own recipe for this post.U can try it at home and give to your family and friends :) 

Here it is :)


  • 1/4 cup Unsalted Butter(Room Temperature)
  • 3/4  cup Sweetened Condensed milk
  •  1 cup All purpose  flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 1 /2 Tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking soda
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk 
  • 1 cup Apple finely chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 F or 180 C. Line the mini muffin liners into the mini muffin pan and set aside.

Using an electric mixer or hand mixer,beat the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth,Add the condensed milk.Sift the flour,baking soda and baking powder and add to the wet mixture until its well combined.Add milk and vanilla extract and stir it well,Fold the chopped apples into the batter and its well combined.

Evenly pour the batter atleast 1 tablespoon into each and every liner of the mini muffin pan and allow to bake it for about 10 to 12 minutes or just until the toothpick comes out clean.Do not over bake.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the cooling rack before frosting.

Butter Cream Frosting :


  • 2 cups powdered or icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter(room temperature)
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Tsp to 1 Tsp Cardamom powder( crushed and coarse) (If you feel the flavor is there then OK otherwise increase the quantity)
  • 2 Tablespoons milk or light cream 
  • 1/4 to 2/3 cup Grated Apple.

Using an electric mixer or hand mixer,beat the butter until smooth,add vanilla extract and gradually add the sugar until its well combined.Add milk or cream,cardamom powder and beat gently until the frosting is light and fluffy for about 3 to 5 minutes.Scrap down the sides as needed.Fold the grated apple until it is well combined.

Put into the piping bag with  a star tip and decorate onto the cupcake and garnish  it with chopped apple.
