**SugarBeam Saturday-Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes**

Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

     This great idea came from the 'Creative Cupcake Genius' over at Hoosier Homemade.  For Cupcake Tuesday she made cinnamon roll cupcakes and I thought "what a great idea!"  So, I pulled out my cinnamon roll recipe and away I went!  These are definitely going on my holiday menu at SugarBeams, I think they would be a great present to have delivered to someone on Christmas Eve!

Milk and butter to 125 degrees.

Mixin', mixin'....

After second proofing and ready to go into oven!

Smell O' Vision, we need Smell O' Vision...

Ice while hot and then top with more icing when cool.



~1 Cup milk
~3 Tbsp butter
~3 1/2 Cup flour
~1/2 Cup sugar
~1 egg
~1 packet of Rapid Rise Yeast
~ 1/2 tsp salt

~1 1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
~4 Tbsp cinnamon
~3/4 stick of butter

~8 oz cream cheese
~2 Cups powdered sugar
~1 stick butter
~1 tsp vanilla
~1 tsp lemon flavoring (no alcohol)

Heat milk and butter to 125 degrees.   Transfer to mixer and mix in 1 cup of flour, sugar, egg, yeast and salt.  Mix on low for 2 minutes.  Add rest of flour and mix until ball forms.  Knead on floured surface for 7 minutes.  Transfer to oiled bowl, cover and let rise in warm place for 2 hours.
Roll out to rectangle.  Spread butter over dough and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over butter.  Roll up on long side and cut into approx 12 rolls.  Place in liners in cupcake pans, cover and let rise again for 45 min.  Bake at 375 degrees for 19 min.

Mix all icing ingredients together and spread a little while cupcakes are hot, then  pipe the rest over cooled cupcakes.

Those are some serious, towering cupcakes there! It always irritates me how cinnamon rolls bake together into one giant mass of dough, so this is a good solution.

These look super yummy! The hearts on top are a cute touch too!

SugarBeam said...

Bittersweet: This recipe (minus the liners) is my plain ol cinnamon roll recipe and it doesn't stick all together they stay fairly separate, if you ever want to use it! :-)
Mrs. Fox: Thank you! Needed something 'cupcakey' on top! :-}

Wow! What more can I say! I MUST try these!
It's so nice to meet you (came here from sweet as sugar cookies)! What a delightful blog you have! :)

SugarBeam said...

Wow! What a lovely comment! Thank you and welcome!!! :-}

Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust said...

I love this idea! I love that they are cinnamon rolls dressed like cupcakes. I would love for you to share these tomorrow at Crazy Sweet Tuesday !

Kim McCallie said...

That looks unbelievable!! And, the big dollop of icing on the top is my favorite part. I would love to have one of these. Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.

Kirsteen said...

Wow these look soo good! I can't wait to try them. Well done :)

SugarBeam said...

Dorothy: I loved this idea too when I saw it at Hoosier Homemade! And I'll be there, you are on my 'peeps and their parties' list so I don't forget!!

Kim: Oh yeah! There's no such thing as too much frosting!! And your welcome!

Kirsteen: Do try these! Only be careful, they have a way of disappearing VERY quickly! (strange, I know, we still don't know what happened)

Jess said...

Stopping over from Recipe Sharing Monday and these are simply mouth watering! These are definitely at the top of my to-do list!

SugarBeam said...

Thanks Jess! These are the easiest cinnamon rolls I've ever come across, just eliminate the 'cupcake' process and put in 9x13 and bake for same amount of time if you just want to make plain ol' cinnamon rolls ;-}

Mindie Hilton said...

What a crazy cute idea. Thank you for sharing at Bacon Time. I am drooling over here.

SugarBeam said...

There could be a cupcake based off every bar in that bag! (I'm sensing a possible theme! {Nestle Crunch Cupcake?}) said...

This looks so yummy! I would love it if you came over to Cast Party Wednesday and shared this recipe with us.
I hope to see you there!

Michael Ann said...
