We’re having our first spring rain… and it’s been raining nonstop for four days. I love the rain. I love jumping in water puddles. Neighborhood children think its funny to see the “old broad” jumping in water puddles but I don’t care. It’s the child in me peeking out for a few brief moments. Maybe this is why I chose Cinnamon Roll cupcakes as my recipe today. Hmm! Warm cinnamon roll cupcakes and a cup of tea while sitting on the covered porch enjoying the rain.
Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes with Cheesecake Frosting topped with Mini Cinnamon Rolls from www.culinaryconcoctionsbypeabody.com/2010/09/25
This recipe is a lot of work. Not only is there a batter but also a filling, a cupcake pan coating, frosting and mini rolls batter. It’s worth every bit of it!
Make sure you check your cinnamon inventory. I didn’t and barely made it with what I had in the cupboard. The last thing I wanted to do was get back in the car to head to the store again in the rain. I know… I love the rain but I hate shopping.
My kitchen smells heavenly. Just what I was hoping for… warm cinnamon roll aroma wafting through the air… Ok, I’m back! I’ll just say YUM!
This cupcake is beautiful. The outside is baked in a sugar cinnamon coating instead of a cupcake liner. Then there is the cinnamon brown sugar filling, between two scoops of batter, that you swirl together.
This is the best of both a cupcake and a cinnamon roll. It has all the flavors of a cinnamon roll yet is light and fluffy like a cupcake. I can only imagine how incredible this would taste with the Cheesecake Frosting.
Make this on a rainy day or for a special breakfast. You will thank yourself later.
