Mostly I like  very normal food [Malabar dishes ].I  make cakes and pizzas for my kids and obviously to satisfy my baking addiction .But my kids only love chocolate cakes and pizzas so I have to be  very choosy  .When I  saw this cupcake with cinnamon I just couldn't control because I love cinnamon flavored food I love to visit Ikea some times only because of their Cinnamon Roll with Coffee .I thought two times before preparing this because if my kids didn't like it I would have had to finish it all by myself  .But Thankfully  my kids loved it .I adapted cupcakes recipe here.and mocha frosting from here


1 1/2 cups cake flour, sifted and then measured

1 1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp powdered cinnamon or u can add more

1/4 tsp salt

100 gm butter, softened

3/4 cup demerara (or light brown) sugar, packed

1 egg, at room temperature

1 tsp vanilla extract

3/4 cups milk, at room temperature


Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter, cinnamon and sugar till light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well.

Add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with two additions of milk. Beat after each addition, just enough to combine the ingredients and do not overmix. After all the additions, beat for just one minute.

Divide the batter equally between 8 to 10 paper lined cupcake tins (depending on the size of your tins) so that each one is 2/3rds full.

Bake the cupcakes at 180C for 20 to 25 minutes till done or a skewer inserted in them comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes and then turn out and cool completely. Frost the cupcakes with the vanilla frosting given below.

This recipe makes 8 to 10 cupcakes.

     powdered sugar

  2. 2. Beat butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar mixture alternately with coffee mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Beat in half-and-half, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until smooth and mixture has reached desired consistency.
