Snickedoodle cupcakes

A friend of mine, Katy, gave me this recipe. It's a huge hit with the non-chocolate crowd. I've changed it up a little bit because of my taste buds, but it's basically hers!! It's one of those ''box only better'' recipes. It's easy and yummy. She's makes real buttercream, but since I don't like it, I used premade vanilla frosting. Bad me!!
When you can buy the mix for 99 cents, it really saves money and time and it's big on taste!!


oven 350ºf

1 box white cake mix
3 eggs
1 stick of butter, melted and slightly cooled (1/2 cup)
1 1/4 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon cinnamon (adjust to your tastebuds)
1 teaspoon vanilla ( optional but tasty)

mix it all together and bake according to box. It works well as a bundt, cupcakes (duh), pound cake shape, whatever

Frosting: add a teaspoon of cinnamon to your favorite vanilla buttercream or mix it into to tub-o-frosting.

My frosting.....frost with vanilla frosting...I like Betty Crocker and dust with a mixture of powdered sugar and cinnamon. ( 1 teas. to 1 cup sugar, but you can adjust to your tastebuds))

For the bundt or pound cake shapes., I make a glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar, cinnamon to taste (teaspoon) and some milk until it drizzles just like thick maple syrup. It takes a little time to harden up, but yumm-o-licious!
