Delicious! The batter is a thick, sticky consistency and it was a slight challenge putting them into the muffin cups, but they turned out tasty. The espresso buttercream is outstanding! These cupcakes taste just like a cappuccino and they are beautiful with the espresso and cinnamon sprinkled on the top! I will definitely make these again.

Not the easiest or fastest recipe, but I added 1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa powder, a package of hazelnut instant coffee, subbed yogurt with 1/2 tsp baking soda for sour cream (simply because I didn't have any around), and used Duncan Hines' mocha frosting, and it was a fantastic hit among the coffee lovers!

Wow these are OUTSTANDING! The cupcakes are one of the best vanilla cupcakes I've ever made. The cream cheese and sour cream give the batter a really thick consistency and make the cupcakes taste great! And the frosting is out of this world!
