Apple Cupcakes with Vanilla Cheese Frosting
For the frosting:
Toast the almonds in a non-stick pan until golden brown. Mix together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. Stir in the eggs, oil, buttermilk and soy sauce. Peel, quarter and de-core the apples, cut them into small pieces and stir into the mixture with the almonds.
Put the mixture into a muffin pan lined with 12 paper cases and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C (gas mark 3, fan 160 ℃) for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Leave the finished muffins to cool on a rack.
Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla sugar. Carefully stir in the cream cheese and scoop the mixture into a piping bag with a star-shaped nozzle. Frost the muffins and garnish with the toasted almonds if you like.
