Turned out perfect! Great for cold weather!

Welcome, my dear friends! Step into my cozy kitchen, the heart of our home, and gather around the table. I have a special autumn treat to share with you today – Apple Cider Cupcakes. Just saying their name brings to mind images of golden leaves under a Midwestern sky, harvest festivals, and the crisp, cool air of fall mornings.

These Apple Cider Cupcakes are a celebration of tradition, embodying the essence of American autumn. Apple cider has been a fall staple for as long as apples have been pressed, and each bite of these spiced, tender cakes takes you back to a simpler time – a time when community potlucks were the week’s highlight. So, whether you’re preparing for a gathering or simply treating yourself on a brisk afternoon, let’s bake some heartwarming memories with these delightful cupcakes.
