  • Blogger Variation by Jocelyn Delk-Adams of Grandbaby Cakes

    For Jocelyn's version, add a cinnamon roll swirl. Mix together 3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter, 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour. Alternate adding cupcake batter and swirl mixture into prepared muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full. Then using a skewer or toothpick, gently swirl batter into pretty whirl pattern. Bake as directed. Top with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Buttercream.
