Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Mix cake mix, water, egg whites, oil, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, vanilla extract, and lemon extract together in the bowl of a stand mixer; mix on low for 30 seconds. Increase speed to medium and mix batter for 2 minutes. Fill muffin cups 2/3-full with batter.
  3. Combine white sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon together in a small bowl; sprinkle over batter.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in a cupcake comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Cool cupcakes to room temperature.
  5. Beat butter in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Add confectioners' sugar, 3 tablespoons honey, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; beat until just combined. Mix milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, into creamed butter mixture until desired consistency of frosting is reached. Spoon frosting into a piping bag or a plastic bag with a snipped corner; pipe onto each cupcake. Drizzle honey over each frosted cupcake.

The best cupcakes I have ever had!

An extremely sweet cupcake, more reminiscent of a coffee cake than sopapillas. Pronounced honey flavor in the frosting. Used turbinado sugar in the dusting. Instead of lemon extract simply soaked lemon zest in vanilla extract.

These cupcakes are amazing! I've made them several times. The only thing I did differently was add more cinnamon both to the cake mix and to the frosting, added a little bit, like a quarter of a teaspoon, more lemon extract, and I just squeezed the honey into the frosting mix, didn't measure out three tablespoons. It was probably a bit more than that, but it was glorious!

Yum! I made some Mexican dishes for a group of friends, and topped the meal off with these fun cupcakes. Every single person raved about them! There were no leftovers!

Very easy and Wonderful! Could not believe how the frosting pulled together those wonderful flavors and combined so well with the cupcake to make these a hit in our home.

This review for frosting only. I used this frosting on plain yellow cupcakes to add a little flavor. It is a close second to my favorite cream cheese icing! Very sweet and has a strong honey flavor. I added a little extra cinnamon since I wasn't using cinnamon in the cupcakes. Makes me want to try the Sopapilla cupcakes!
