Cinnamon roll cupcakes

I made this recipe and we all totally loved it ! Those cupcakes totally taste like a cinnamon roll !

Ingredients :

  • 1/3 cup organic butter
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose organic flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup  organic brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup  sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup organic whole milk

Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners.  Preheat oven to 350 F.

Bring butter and eggs to room temperature.  In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.  In another bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.

In a large bowl, beat butter until fluffy.  Add sugar and beat until combined.  Add egg and vanilla.  Add flour in three portions, alternating with milk (flour, milk, flour, milk, flour).

Add 1 tbsp batter to the paper liners.  Add 1 tsp cinnamon mixture to the cups.  Add remaining batter to the muffin cups (about 2 tbsp each).  Sprinkle the tops with the remaining cinnamon mixture.

Bake cupcakes for 20-22 minutes  (or until a toothpick comes out with just crumbs clinging).  Let cool on a wire rack for ten minutes then remove from the baking pan.  Allow to cool to room temperature before frosting.

For the frosting, I used a basic cream cheese frosting (butter,cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla).

This is a very easy recipe that can be done quickly. I made a batch and now my kitchen smells like a cinnabon store 🙂

Sprinkled with cinnamon for decoration...

My son wanted to try frost his own cupcake, i turned my back 5 seconds and this is what he did :

“But mommy those are frosting claws” – what do you answer to that ?

Happy Thursday, the weekend is almost here !
