One of the best tasting cup-cake I've made so far. Its a must try. The result is moist and soft and the cinnamon flavor fills up the home. Divine! Waiting for my 6 year old to give me the final verdict. I suspect the lack of frosting might put her off but the sprinkled cinnamon sugar might just save the the day. Let's see.
