Cinnamon Devil's Food Cupcakes

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This makes a huge amount of cupcakes, I am sure that you could freeze some and frost them later. I made these recently and baked them in fancy foil muffin liners, and took them to a senior's home, they were enjoyed by the residents and the staff, everyone wanted this recipe! I frosted these with my buttercream frosting, Kittencal's Bakery Buttercream Frosting/Icing with a teaspoon of almond extract added in to it but you can use your favorite frosting recipe to top these cupcakes

Oh Kit - AWESOME cupcakes!!! used recipe #44126 for the frosting. Made half the recipe and used a bit less sugar. Loved the coffee in these muffins!! Used low-fat milk and added a bit of lemon juice to make buttermilk. Also used some chocolate kisses instead of chocolate chips... Thanks Kit! :)
