If you love cupcakes, the fall-friendly apple cobbler cupcake at Butter Cafe and Bakery in Walpole, Mass., "takes the cupcake."
This absolutely mouthwatering concoction features cake batter-like frosting with apple crumble cake on the top and loads of warmed soft apples and a hint of cinnamon and vanilla beneath. Forget all those apple, pumpkin and maple infused fall-time sweets from the big box food chains, this masterpiece gets to the "core" of locally-made fall baked goods. No surprise, given the high-end breakfasts, lunches and sweets turned out by veteran Boston culinary whiz and Butter Cafe owner Steve Butters (a former chef at Flat Iron Tapas Bar and Lounge at the Bullfinch Hotel, Aquitaine and the Metropolis Cafe, all in Boston, Mass.).
