Cupcakes are the best. Especially when they are homemade and have salted caramel in the middle of them! Today I made some delicious Salted Carmel Cupcakes and according to an entire lakehouse of people, they are delicious. The reviews were amazing and I can’t wait to share my cupcake recipe with you. This might be my best cupcake recipe ever.
Today I have also joined ten other bloggers and we are all sharing fall cupcake recipes. Be sure to scroll down the bottom of my post to see what they have made!
Cupcakes with a Yummy Center
What makes these cupcakes one of the best cupcake recipes? These delicious cupcakes have a runny caramel center in the cupcake and frosting with a slight cream cheese taste! The cupcake batter tastes like snickerdoodles and has a delicious cinnamon taste. How perfect does that sound? Just delicious!
Look how great these cupcakes look just after I took them out of the oven.
The salted caramel sauce was really easy to make. I just melted caramel candies with cream and added a bit of salt.
Then I made a small hole in the center of each cupcake. I used an apple core tool. Just be sure to only remove the cupcake 3/4 of the way down.
Then fill each cupcake hole with the salted caramel sauce.
Don’t these look amazing? I love that the caramel centers are kind of a surprise. By now you should know this is the best cupcake recipe ever!

These look like heaven!!!
Now you’re speaking my language! I love caramel anything! These look amazing Leslie. Thanks for hosting!
These sound delicious Leslie! Love the surprise filling. Yum!
These sound and look delicious. You had me at Snickerdoodle and caramel. I have made pretty much every dessert there is but never cupcakes. Not once and funny thing, I love them.
The directions are confusing for the batter. I’m supposed to mix the butter with cream cheese until fluffy?
I have tried twice to make these and thought because my sour cream and eggs were too cold that they would not blend with the butter but even on the second try with room temperature ingredients they will not meld. I will proceed on without fluffy sour cream/eggs etc. and see what happens.
Hmmm. I put my butter in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it and then mixed them easily. How did the cupcakes come out?
With both attempts the sour cream did not blend but on the second go I added the dry ingredients, mixed it well, and they came out great. They are delicious for sure!!!
Oh thank heavens!
Oh my gosh! I’d better hurry up and make these before I feel compelled to go back on a diet or something! Wow – those look fabulous! 💗💗
Hahaha. You are too funny!
Oh. My. Gosh! I just want to sink my teeth into these cupcakes. These are absolutely fab! I’m definitely saving the recipe for later.
Leslie, thank you A LOT for sharing this brilliant idea. Such treasure. Look forward to your new awesome recipes. Your blog is wonderful, and I appreciate all the hard work that goes into it.
Hi! I’m planning on making these this weekend for a birthday party 🙂 Could you tell me how many cupcakes this recipe makes? Thank you!
