  1. My rating is based solely on the opinions of my 16 years old son and his friends. I made these a couple of weeks ago and I never had a chance to frost them. My son ate 3 for breakfast and put the rest in a huge ziplock bag and took them to school to share with his friends. I didn't even get a chance to try onemyself! :( I plan to make them again very soon though! Thanks for posting!
  2. EXCELLENT!! And so easy!! Mine baked up beautifully in 20 minutes. I used the canned cream cheese frosting with cinnamon and tried the suggested homemade recipe. Thanks for posting!
  3. So yummy! I made this in a bundt pan rather than make the cupcakes and added a little more cinnamon to the batter. I baked it for about 45 minutes and frosting with the cinnamon crease cheese icing mentioned. Thanks for this fabulous recipe!!
  4. You MUST make these! So easy and so delicious! You can't eat just one! Truly a crowd pleaser.
  5. Made this in a 9x13 cake pan instead of cupcakes and topped with the cinnamon cream cheese frosting. My DH loved it, and even ate it for breakfast! Thank you for another good one...
