Amaretto Apple Streusel Cupcakes (Treats For Co-Irkers)

If I had a penny for every recipe I've torn out of magazines, I'd have, well let's just say I'd have enough money to buy a real cookbook. I tore this recipe out of Cooking Light last fall and added it to my ever growing stash. When I was cleaning out my cupboard today and found a couple of ounces left in an Amaretto bottle, I decided today was the day to make these as treats for the co-irkers.

The funny part? I tore out the picture (which also listed the ingredients,) but didn't tear out the instructions page. I had all my ingredients measured out but had no idea what to do with them. Now had this been a muffin recipe, I could have figured out what to do. I'm not as ignorant as I look. But cake batter is mixed entirely differently from muffin batter and I haven't made a cake in a coon's age. So Googling I went and came up with the recipe online. Know what else is funny? Since I can link directly to the recipe I'm going to go take a nap. That's freaking hilazious!

These are so moist and light, they'll melt in your mouth. Swears.

The cupcakes look yummy. But I am more interested in the nap. I love naps!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so with you on the recipes torn out of magazines! Add all the ones I've bookmarked on blogs (including this one), I have so many I don't know what to do!!! Every weekend I think I am going to organize them. Maybe this weekend.

These look so good and the nap sounds wonderful.

Mags...

I'm proud of you that you didn't just glug those last couple ounces of Amaretto but put them to use in this wonderful sounding recipe! I will have to try these.

I have looked at this recipe often because I do love me some Amaretto! I just haven't made it because the ingredient list was so long...guess that's not a good excuse, but that is why! LOL.

These look great and I bet were much appreciated by the coworkers; do you know Dali insisted on taking a nap every day, said it was essential to his health and well-being?

do they need a marketing person at your hubby's work??? because I can totally be available if I get to eat all these treats :)

Pam said...

I so so so want to be a co-irker.

So weren't you going to take a break from posting so frequently????

You are one funny lady and a great baker. I am off to track down that recipe. It sounds and looks yummy.

Then, I have to decide if I should bake your recipe or Moogie's. Heck. I should just make both of them.

I am off to try.

So I'm sure that better late than never, right?
Now that we are unable to comment at work it takes me a little longer to comment at all.

But let me tell you these are worth talking about. As one co-irker stated, "I think this is my favorite thing that Mags has made."

While I don't quite agree with that - I am , after all, a cheesecake fanatic- these are good - heavy and moist and heavenly.

Thanks so much our acutely amazing Apple Streuseling amazon.
