Best Ever Apple with Carmel Frosting

Best Ever Apple
1 box spice cake mix
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ cup oil
2 Granny Smith apples cut into ½” pieces, skins on

Mix together cake mix, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and oil. Batter will be thick. Add apples and beat for 2-3 minutes on medium speed. Batter will thin out somewhat. Pour batter into paper liners and fill ¾ full. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack. Frost once cooled.

Caramel Cream Frosting
4 Tbsp. butter
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup dark brown sugar
2-3 Tbsp. whole milk
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Place butter and brown sugars in a medium skillet over medium heat. Stir and cook the mixture until it comes to a boil. Add milk and bring the mixture back to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove pan from heat and add powdered sugar and vanilla. Beat mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth and creamy. Allow the cupcakes to cool slightly before frosting. Frosting will harden when cooled completely.
