Graham Cracker Cupcakes with Buttercream frosting (and dark chocolate kiss!) via Baked by Rachel
Yield: 24 cupcakes

When you feel like having almost s’mores, I recommend my lighter approach - just a little graham in your life could save you from a sticky marshmallow disaster in the future. ;)

What You’ll Need: 

  • For the Cupcakes 
    1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs (room temp)
  • 4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
    For the Frosting
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 1/2-3/4 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp milk (as needed)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
    optional: dark chocolate kisses for garnish!

The How-To: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  2. Cream the butter and the sugar together. Add the egg and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, graham cracker, baking powder, salt & cinnamon together.
  4. Switching off, add in the flour mixture and then the milk into the batter.
  5. In a lined cupcake pan, fill each cupcake spot 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Cool!
  6. Frosting: Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream the butter first - then add the sugar, vanilla and milk. Beat until fluffy!
  7. Frost like a boss, then eat!

So I found this recipe thinking that I was going to make the marshmallow frosting that is in the original recipe, but since I didn’t have any of those ingredients in my house, I decided to do a plain buttercream. Not only did it pair really well, but it let the cupcake flavor really speak for itself. Cinnamon graham cracker taste in a cupcake! I had also toyed with making the frosting cinnamon as well, but I think I made the right choice by not doing that - I think it would’ve been overkill.

Also, buy pre-crumbled graham cracker crumbs. Save yourself the hassle. But, if you don’t do that, put the graham crackers in a ziploc bag or something and use a rolling pin or a wine bottle to crush em all up nice. Or a food processor, but that’s extra tech you might not have - I don’t know your life!

Enjoy!!
