Autumn snickerdoodle cupcakes with cinnamon maple frosting

You.guys.

   You loved last week's post about how to make a perfect latte macchiato so much. It turns out that not only was it helpful but that you were into the fabulous fall flavoring as well. It appears that Maple Cinnamon Vanilla Cupcake is the new desired fall flavor (take that pumpkin spice!!!).
 
     I’m forever wowed by the shares, comments and love I’ve had for that post on social media. One thing stood out for sure. You all wanted to know about the cupcake I was eating with it! The inspiration that started if all. So today I’m sharing the recipe! My kiddos have promptly changed the name of it to the “Maple Snickerdoodle Cupcake”, because it tastes like a snickerdoodle, with a maple twist!

     Actually they call them Maple Stinky Poodle cupcakes. Am I the only one who has kids that call snickerdoodles stinky poodles?




Cupcake recipes for fall

First off, I’m all about making it as effortless as possible. Starting with your favorite vanilla cupcake.

Cinnamon Maple Buttercream frosting

You can use the one Grandma passed down to you - or use a simple box mix. I did the later. Plain old simple underestimated vanilla.

The trick to getting that snickerdoodle flavor - all in the icing!

Maple brown sugar cinnamon icing

It’s a simple buttercream frosting with a few added surprises.

It features brown sugar that adds this slightly crunchy texture and of course this standby:

I grew up with gorgeous maple trees in my front yard. Every fall they were alight in color. In the spring, our nature preserve tapped maple trees and made syrup. That sweet smell makes me think of those trees, and all the times we climbed them, and of 18 years living in the same house. I have so loved making this recipe and reliving some of those memories. I hope you enjoy them as much as our family did!

These scrumptious cupcakes add maple to put a spin on the classic flavors of snickerdoodles. The homemade maple frosting features cinnamon and brown sugar.

INGREDIENTS:

FOR THE CUPCAKES:
  • Use your favorite recipe or box mix (vanilla flavor)
FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 5 cups powdered confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream

INSTRUCTIONS:

FOR THE CUPCAKES
  1. Bake according the the recipe, or directions on the back of the box.
FOR THE CINNAMON MAPLE BROWN SUGAR FROSTING:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter.
  2. Add in the cinnamon, maple syrup and brown sugar. Mix until combined and the mix is lighter and fluffy.
  3. Slowly add in the confectioners/powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, mixing in between each addition.
  4. Once everything is combined thoroughly, slowly add in the milk, mixing well. The frosting should come together after mixing. It is not soft, but not stiff either. If it is too soft, add a bit more confectioners sugar. If it is to stiff add in a little bit more milk, 1 tsp at a time, mixing well after.
