This Cake Stuffed Caramel Apple On A Stick recipe is a fun way to eat baked apples this fall. They look like caramel apples and have a spiced cupcake inside.
I already posted Caramel Apple Cupcakes but it got me thinking about another kind of caramel apple cupcakes where the cupcake is actually baked inside the caramel apple. It took me a few tries, but I love how they turned out.
In this Cake Stuffed Caramel Apple On A Stick recipe, the hollowed out apple becomes an edible cupcake wrapper and everything is covered in caramel to make it even more fun!
Cut the top off of six apples and scoop out the insides leaving about 1/4 inch intact using a melon baller and paring knife. Place the apples in a rectangular baking dish.
Mix the cake batter and scoop it into the hollowed apple.
Bake to apple cupcakes at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, until the top springs back when lightly touched and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow the cake stuffed baked apples to cool a bit and then cover each one with a caramel apple wrap. I used these caramel apple wraps.
Add a stick for fun and to make them look more like caramel apples but they cannot be carried using the stick. This Cake Stuffed Caramel Apple On A Stick should be stored in the fridge and is best when eaten fresh. The longer they sit, the more moist the cupcakes will become due to the juice from the apple.

Can a box cake mix be used?
Yes, but you will only need a portion of the cake mix. You can use the rest to make regular cupcakes! I tried it with the boxed spice cake mix, but you can use whatever flavor you want. Enjoy! ~Tonia
