Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes
Cinnamon Rolls. I am obsessed with the things. Officially the BEST breakfast around (in my opinion) they aren't as huge here as they are in NYC, but they are just amazing. I did make a batch this weekend (recipe to come later in the week) but they do take a bit of time and effort. Bring on cinnamon roll cupcakes. Much quicker and will definitely satisfy your cinnamon craving, especially with the white chocolate cream cheese buttercream! Makes approx 14 cupcakes.
Cake: 200g cups cake flour 200g caster sugar 1/2 tbsn. baking powder 115g unsalted butter 475 ml milk 2 large eggs 1 large egg white 1 tsp. vanilla
Filling: 3 tbsn. caster sugar 3 tbsn. light brown sugar 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. cocoa powder
Buttercream: 150g white chocolate 100g butter 110g marscapone cheese 600g icing sugar Tsp vanilla Milk if needed to soften
Tsp cinnamon + caster sugar for sprinkling.
Sift and combine the dry ingredients for the cake and mix. Whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla and add slowly to the batter. Mix well until combined. Scoop into cupcake cases. Mix the ingredients for the filling together and drop into cupcake cases.
Bake on 180oC for 20 mins or until tops are lightly browned.
Once cool, sift in icing sugar and add vanilla, softened butter, marscapone cheese and melted white chocolate and whisk until creamy.
Ice in a big swirl to imitate cinnamon rolls and dust with cinnamon sugar. Serve to your ready and hungry audience! I made these for a housewarming and they went down a storm!
Last one for me?!
