O.C.D. Spice Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Otherwise known as the Oatmeal Cookie Dough stuffed Spice Cupcake...


Jeesh that's a mouthful...literally!

So heres the deal...I wanted cupcakes and Mr. AKM wanted cookies.

Neither of us was giving up on what we wanted.

So we did what any happily married couple would do...

He got his way...and I got mine!

He made his famous Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies...

And I made my Spice Cake, errr cupcakes.

And they decided to get married!  

Dun dun duh dun..dun dun duh dun (it's the wedding march if you can't tell)

Now, I'm not a huge fan of raw cookie dough.

I'm wierd, I know.

So I decided to bake my dough into my cupcakes...

So its more like a cookie stuffed cupcake

But, what-evs.

They are the perfect fall treat if you ask me.

And topped with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

TO. DIE. FOR!

But don't take my word for it...make them for yourself!

    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    Instructions

    Spice Cake Directions
    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour 2 (9-inch) cake pans. In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, cream the brown sugar and butter. With the mixer running, add the oil in a steady stream. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt into a medium-size mixing bowl. Alternately add the flour mixture and the buttermilk to the batter, mixing well. With the electric mixer, in another large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form, then fold them into the cake batter. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared muffin pans. Drop a tablespoon of the Cookie Dough in the center of the cake batter.  Bake about 20 – 22 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on wire racks. After the cakes have cooled, frost with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting.

    Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting Directions
    Cream together butter and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in the powdered sugar about 1 cup at a time, mixing until smooth. Stir in cinnamon and vanilla. Spread on cooled cupcakes.

    Eat and Enjoy!
