These cute little guys are so tasty, and quite easy to make. Because they are coated with cinnamon and sugar, they are a lot like a little cake doughnut. Both kids and adults love them!
Cinnamon-Sugar Mini Cupcakes
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (or ground nutmeg)
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temp.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk (any fat content)
For the coating-
6 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350*F.
Spray a mini muffin pan (I use a silicone one) with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter for a moment, then add the sugar and beat on medium speed until blended and creamy, about 1 minute.
Beat in the egg and vanilla, mixing until smooth and thick.
With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture in three additions and the milk in two additions, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix just until the flour is incorporated
and the batter looks smooth.
Scoop batter into mini muffin pan (a small cookie scoop works great). This recipe makes about 18 cupcakes (I squeeked out 19 this time).
Great recipe! If you wanted to substitute the 1/2 cup milk, could you use almond milk instead?

Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe! I just made them as an afternoon snack and my whole family loves them! I’ll definitely be keeping this as a staple in our home.
Made these for my co-workers and they loved them! Did a double recipe and got 48 mini cupcakes plus 2 large cupcakes baked in ramekins. Will definitely make these again.
I just made them! Delicious, my two toddlers loved them. Thank you so much. Karina
Wonderful work! I will try to make them! Just a question: is it baking soda or baking powder? Thank you and greetings from Brazil. Karina
