Servings: 12 cupcakes



  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick salted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbl milk
  • 1/2 cup raisins


  • 1/2 cup 1 stick salted butter, softened
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Heat the oven to 375°F.
  • Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and raisins.
  • In a large bowl, mix the eggs, butter, and vanilla.
  • Add the flour mixture and mix until smooth.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the muffin cups.
  • Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of a cupcake comes out clean (18 to 20 minutes).
  • Transfer the cupcakes to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.
  • To make frosting: In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract.
  • Frost cupcakes as you wish.
  • Optional: Mix a little cinnamon & sugar together to sprinkle on top of the frosting. Use extra raisins as ants and cinnamon sticks as branches for more elaborate decorating.
  • Don't forget the printables from On the Scene with Mrs. Kathy King! These will be the cupcake wrappers and toppers that you see in my photos.
  • ENJOY!
