Delicious and moist cupcakes that have a little something special with the cinnamon. Great with vanilla, chocolate or cream cheese frosting.

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.

They were delicious but came out a bit dry, does anyone know how can i make them moister the next time?
