TWD: CINNAMON MINI MUFFINS

These were my take on this weeks TWD recipe: Cinnamon Squares, chosen by Tracey of Tracey's Culinary Adventures. Rather than making, well..er, squares; I went with mini muffins and topped them off with a dollop of cinnamon cream cheese frosting. The consistency of these little suckers were more like mini cinnamuffins (cinnamon buns in mini muffin form). The sprinkling of mini chocolate chips in the center added the a perfect chocolate touch.

I went baking cup liner-less in the pans to render less of a mini cupcake feel and more of a mini muffin appearance.  These were a delicious little bite sized treat. Since this recipe has caused me to clearly rebel against the whole "square" thing, the next time I make these, an 8 inch round pan will be in the mix..

OMG !!! I think I just had a religious moment ! Put another 35 racks in the oven, and I'll be there in an hour. Great job !!!

Thanks for baking with me this week! I absolutely love your variations on the recipe! I came so close to using cream cheese frosting on my cupcakes but I got lazy. Next time I'll give it a shot :)

Good call on the frosting! I'm making a banana cake tomorrow and had been intending just a plain cream cheese frosting but your frosting sounds way yummier!
