Delicious, moist yellow cake with caramel filling and whipped caramel frosting.



For the filling:

For the frosting:


  1. For the cupcakes, thoroughly mix all ingredients together. Bake at 325° for about 18 minutes.
  2. Allow the cupcakes to cool while you make the filling (or use pre-made Caramel sauce from a jar, such as Smuckers). When cool, use an apple corer to remove the center and prepare for filling (see how to do this [here|
  3. To make the filling (if you're not using pre-made), add the butter, brown sugar and milk to a small saucepan. Heat until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves, about 3-5 minutes over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Allow to cool slightly and it will start to thicken. Spoon it into the cupcake holes.
  4. For the frosting, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat and add in the brown sugar and cream. Heat until it boils, then remove it from the heat and transfer to a mixing bowl. Slowly add in the confectioners sugar while mixing. Add the vanilla. Continue mixing until the frosting is completely cooled and is whipped up light and fluffy.
  5. Frost the cupcakes and enjoy!!
