Cinnamon Toast Cupcake (S'mores Variation)

This is the Cinnamon Toast Cupcake, which is a variation of my S'mores Cupcake. I used the same cake as the S'mores Cupcakes, but I topped it off with a Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing.
Here are the recipes for the cake and icing:

Cinnamon Toast Cake

2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted butter
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp cinnamon extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease muffin cups well or line with paper cups.
Sift flour and other dry ingredients together.
In a separate bowl, combine butter, milk, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon extract. Stir into the flour mixture.
Fill muffin tins with batter to about 3/4 full.
Bake in oven until a toothpick insterted in the center comes out clean.

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing

2 packages (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 c butter
2 cups sifted confectioners sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Beat cream cheese and butter together until well blended.
Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until mixed well.
Add cinnamon extract and ground cinnamon, mix well.

Top cupcakes with icing after cupcakes have cooled completely, or icing will run.


Love, Saira
