Apple cinnamon cupcakes

Hi friends, the 4-year-old has requested these for his 5th birthday party. Anyone got a great recipe? Would prefer something that doesn't rely on frosting to be moist. Thanks!

I'm trying to think of cupcakes for you, but can't stop thinking about this cake: http://www.food52.com/recipes.... I bet it would be amazing in cupcake form. (No frosting necessary!)

I would use a cinnamon cupcake recipe and mix in some finely chopped apples or dried apples cut cut into small pieces. I have not used a recipe for cinnamon cupcakes per say, but a quick google search does provide some. Alternatively, you can use your favorite vanilla cupcake base and simply up the spices.

A white cake/cupcake recipe with applesauce instead of oil/ butter (fat), & added bits of apple tossed first with a little four-to prevent sogginess-mixed with sugar & cinnamon should work well. When they come out of the oven you could shake on a thin layer of cinnamon-sugar mixture . Now I'm getting hungry.

I always have success with recipes from The Cupcake Project. She has a few that might work for you:

Why not do a glaze made with the following 1 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar and 4 tablespoons orange juice. Then you can add some red or green food coloring for an "apple like" coloring.
Here's also a link for a yummy apple cinnamon cupcake recipe from Martha Stewart http://www.marthastewart...
