By Stefani Pollack


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 25 minutes

Servings: 18


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup full-fat mayonnaise
  • ⅔ cup lemon juice
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • ¾ cup roughly chopped walnuts
  • ¾ cup finely chopped apples
  • whipped cream, to taste
  • 9 grapes


Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix together sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Add in the butter, and mix until well-combined.  You should end up with a fine crumb texture. Mix in mayonnaise until well-combined. Mix in lemon juice until well-combined. Fold in raisins, walnuts, and apples.

Fill cupcake liners ¾ full. Bake for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry. Remove cupcakes from tins and set on a cooling rack to cool.

Once cool, top cupcakes with whipped cream and garnish with half of a grape.
