Apple Butter Cupcakes


1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
½ cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup apple butter, no sugar with spice 
1 tsp vanilla
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2/3 cup evaporated milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set mixture aside for later use. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg and beat well. Beat in apple butter and vanilla. Stir lemon juice into evaporated milk (mixture will curdle). Add the flour mixture and milk mixture alternately to the apple butter mixture, beating on low after each addition just until combined. Grease or line muffin cups and fill each 2/3 full of batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely. Frost with your favorite frosting if desired.
