Maple, Pecan and Apple Cupcakes with Maple Frosting

I made these yesterday afternoon. Even though they turned out kinda deformed, they are still delicious and once I covered them with frosting they looked fine. They were good fuel for our household Monopoly marathon.

Maple, Pecan and Apple Cupcakes
makes about 30 mini cupcakes

60g butter, softened
1 cup self raising flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup maple-flavoured syrup
2 eggs
2/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1/2 cup coarsely grated apple

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (360 F).
2. Beat butter, flour, cinnamon, sugar, syrup and eggs with electric mixer on low speed until ingredients are combined. Increase speed to medium, beat until mixture changes to a paler colour.
3. Stir in pecans and apple. Fill cupcake cases 2/3 full with batter.
4. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until golden. Cool on wire racks, then spread with maple frosting.

hmmm, hug lauren - geez, you ask a lot don't you ;-)

i fixed the website - just moved from adsl1 to adsl2 (yay), but the new modem kinda sucks for running services behind it.

guess i'll have to build a proper linux-box firewall.

email - yeah, do :-)
