Delicious and moist cupcakes that have a little something special with the cinnamon. Great with vanilla, chocolate or cream cheese frosting. The amount of Flour is optional, depending on how dry you want your cupcakes.

These have such a nice flavor, this recipe is a keeper for me. Thank you! FYI, I did cut down on the butter by about half and subbed in light sour cream.
