There’s nothing better than a delicious batch of these eggless cinnamon cupcakes fresh from your oven. I’m telling you, these cupcakes and also these eggless cinnamon rolls are a cinnamon lover’s dream.

It also won’t hurt that your house will smell amazing while they’re baking. But most of all: you can’t tell there’s zero eggs in these cupcakes. You’ll find they’re just as moist, fluffy and delicious as if they contain eggs.

Another big plus with these cupcakes, is that there’s only a small amount of oil in them. Yet that small amount doesn’t take away from the texture or taste in any way.

Another reason why you’ll love these cupcakes, is because cinnamon is actually good for your health.

According to this article, cinnamon can help to reduce inflammation and help to prevent heart disease. This is in addition to other incredible ways cinnamon can help your body.

Bound to Be a Hit with Your Family/Friends

Your family is bound to love the soft texture of these cinnamon cupcakes. This is in addition to an appetizing cinnamon flavor. May I also add that they are super easy to make?

Along with this cupcake recipe, I’ve also created an easy cinnamon buttercream recipe for the cupcakes. This buttercream is very easy to make, and the cinnamon flavor compliments the flavor of the cupcakes.

In addition, this buttercream is healthier than most buttercream recipes due to its only containing 2 tablespoons of butter. That’s right! You won’t miss on flavor despite this, because it tastes as rich as any other buttercream.

Of course you can use whatever flavor buttercream or frosting you’d like. I’m sure these cupcakes would even taste great with a vanilla flavored buttercream frosting.

Super Simple Cupcake Recipe

When I set out to create this recipe, I wanted it to be very simple for anyone to do. Also, I kept in mind that not everyone is an experienced baker. And may be in the learning phase(s) of baking.

Fortunately you only need one bowl and some basic simple ingredients to make these cupcakes. They’re also an easy fun activity for kids to do as well – with a little supervision and guidance.

How to Make These Eggless Cinnamon Cupcakes:

As mentioned, you only need one large bowl to make these cupcakes (apart from the buttercream, of course). Why use more bowls than you really need, right?

Of course, there are some recipes that require you to use more than one bowl; but not this particular one. This recipe is easy to follow: You’re going to add all of your dry ingredients to the bowl first. Then combine till everything’s nicely incorporated.

After that, you’ll add in the remaining wet ingredients. Then you’ll combine the wet and dry ingredients just until the batter comes together. The batter won’t be completely lump-free. As long as there’s no really large lumps, you’re good to go.

Now, onto the fun part: putting the batter in the muffin pan, then baking those muffins! Make sure you let the muffins cool completely before frosting them. If you don’t, the buttercream will likely melt into the cupcakes, which is what we don’t want..

How to Make the Cinnamon Buttercream Frosting:

This buttercream is absolutely delicious, and it’s so easy to make. There’s really no steps to making it. All you have to do is add all of the ingredients to a large bowl, then use a hand mixer to combine them together.

The only thing is to make sure that the buttercream is completely smooth and lump-free. Therefore you’ll have to mix it for about 2-3 minutes until then. That’s pretty much it.
