directions

  • To make the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, or the bowl of a standing mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, until just combined then stir in the vanilla and oil. Sprinkle 1/3 of the flour mixture over the butter mixture and gently stir in until barely combined. Add half of the milk, mixing until just combined. Repeat these steps with the remaining flour mixture and milk, ending with the flour. Do not over mix.
  • Fill each cupcake tin with 2 tablespoons of batter, or until the cupcake tin is filled half way. Bake the cupcakes for 14 to 16 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with one or two crumbs clinging to it. Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before frosting.
  • To make the frosting: Cream the butter and cream cheese together in a large bowl. Add the sugar, one cup at a time, beating well between each addition. Stir in the cinnamon until thoroughly combined. Then stir in the vanilla. Beat the mixture well, until light and fluffy.
  • Pipe onto cupcakes, sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar and top with a drizzle of Dulce De Leche if desired.

    This is an amazing recipe! I used cupcake wrappers that were bigger than normal, so my yield was about half the one stated in the recipe, but the cupcakes that I did get were still really good! Everyone loved them!

    Not bad as written but a bit heavy and oily for our tastes, second time around used cashew milk and applesauce in place of the oil (kept the butter!) and the texture and flavour was a LOT better (and closer to the churros I remember, ironically!). Topped with a cocoa glaze it was totally the right experience

    Great cinnamon taste. Cake is more of a muffin consistency and pairs well with the icing. The icing is very sweet so you only need a thin layer. Very tasty and definitely recommend giving them a try.
