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?
Look how great these cupcakes looked just after I took them out of the oven.
The salted caramel sauce was easy to make. I just melted caramel candies with cream and added a bit of salt.
Next, I made a small hole in the center of each cupcake. (I used an apple core tool!) Just be sure to only remove the cake 3/4 of the way down the cupcake.
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!
