  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup light eggnog
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

for the frosting:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp light eggnog
  • ground cinnamon for dusting


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line muffin pan with cupcake liners.

  2. In a large bowl, combine all cupcake ingredients and mix with a whisk until batter is smooth and no lumps remain. Pour batter into cupcake liners, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  3. Let cupcakes cool before frosting. To make the frosting, add whipping cream, sugar and eggnog to a bowl of a stand mixer and mix on high speed until stiff peaks form. Put frosting in piping bag to pipe. Sprinkle piped cupcakes with ground cinnamon.
