Cinnamon Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
Yield | 12 cupcakes
Cupcake recipe adapted from Love & Olive Oil

For the Cupcake:

  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup (I used skim) milk
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup oil 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Frosting:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 8oz package cream cheese
  • 2 ½ cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • A generous sprinkling of cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 deg F
  2. Sift together the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, salt + cinnamon in a large bowl. Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients (to pour the wet into later)
  3. Combine milk + vinegar, then add vanilla, sugar and oil. Pour into dry ingredients and mix until combined.
  4. Fill cupcake cups 2/3 of the way full and bake for 20-22 minutes (20 was perfecto for me)
  5. Let the cupcakes cool, then take out the cream cheese/butter to soften. Use a mixer to combine fully, and then add the vanilla/powdered sugar. When all combined, sprinkle the cinnamon on top of the frosting and mix one last time.

These are a great any-time-of-day cupcake, and go perfectly with some tea. (:
Awesome! Happy Autumn Everyone!
