Pinterest is loaded with cinnabon everything. Cinnamon roll pancakes, cinnamon roll cookies, and just plain cinnamon rolls. I have had two boxes of white cake mix sitting in my pantry with nothing to do for weeks. I finally decided to combine all of these recipes I have been seeing and make Cinnabon Cupcakes.
I made a runny icing glaze to drizzle on top. They were delicious and just what my white cake mix needed.
So if you have any white cake mixes lying around- make these. Your friends /family /husband /dog /boyfriend will love 'em.
for the cupcakes:
- 1 box white cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup milk
- 1/3 vegetable oil
- 1 cup sour cream
for the cinnamon mixture:
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- T cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a muffun pan with cupcake tins.
Mix all cupcake ingredients in a mixer until lumps are gone.
Scoop a little bit of cupcake batter into the bottom of a tin. Then drizzle cinnamon mixture on top. Then top with a little more cupcake batter. Make sure cupcake batter does not exceed 2/3 full. Drizzle more cinnamon mixture on top.
Repeat with all 12 cupcakes.
Cook for 15-18 minutes in the oven.
Combine all icing ingredients. Add more powdered sugar to reach ideal consistency. Drizzle on top of cupcakes and eat with a glass of milk. Yum.
