Preheat the
oven to 180°C. Line two giant cupcake tins with cupcake liners.

1. In a
large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add the sour
cream and vanilla essence and mix.

2. Add the
egg whites one at  a time, whisking after
each addition until combined. Stir in the apple purée.

3. Mix the
flour, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.

4. Add the
flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix well.

5. In a
small bowl, combine the cinnamon and castor sugar.

6 Spoon a
little batter into each cupcake liner. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the batter
to cover. Add a little more batter then another layer of cinnamon sugar. Finish
with a little more batter so the liners are three-quarters full.

7. Bake for
20-25 minutes  or until a toothpick
inserted in the middle comes out clean. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool.

8. Topping
Increase the oven temperature to 200°C. Bake the apple slices on a baking sheet
for 10 minutes or until crisp. Set aside to cool. Top each cupcake with butter
icing (if using) and apple chips. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over.
