Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and then cooled
2 eggs
1 tsp maple extract
1/2 cup milk

Preheat oven to 350'F and line baking pan with paper liners.

Mix together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl.

In a large bowl, whisk together butter, sugar and eggs until smooth. Make sure the butter is cool or you’ll have scrambled eggs.

Whisk in maple extract and then alternate between whisking in flour mixture and milk. Make three additions of flour mix and two of milk. Beat until smooth.

Scoop batter into prepared pan and bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown and tops spring back when lightly touched.

Cool the cupcakes on a rack for 10 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely.

Recipe from Julie Hasson's 125 Best Cupcake Recipes.

MY NOTES: I used a dark pan so I reduced my oven temp by 15 degrees (I know it's supposed to be 25 degrees). Mine were done at 17 minutes. I got 14 cupcakes out of this recipe. I couldn't really taste the maple so I'll probably add 1/2 or 1 teaspoon more next time. Also, some chopped pecans in the frosting might be delicious!

These sounded really good, but I couldn't taste the maple flavoring at all. To me, this just tasted like a really good cinnamon cupcake.
