Cajeta Cupcakes

For this one, I used Clara's PB Dulce De Leche Cupcakes as a starting point. I followed that recipe, and the only change I made was that I used something that I knew I had at home. Ive never used Nutella, but I remembered I had bought this Carmel spread a little while back and thought that might actually supstitute very well.

Here is what that looks like. I only used about 1/3 cup of this.

The batter for this one was very thick. Almost like cookie dough.

I then swirled in the Cajeta, and it was a little hard for a toothpick, so I used a knife.

These came out a little big. I used all the batter, and it still made 24 big cupcakes. They came out great. I loved the swirl look.

I finished them off with the Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting found here.

I really liked this one. The cupcake was a bit dry, but with the added frosting it made it really good. I didnt add a lot of powdered sugar, so it wasnt very sweet. We would really make this again.

Mmmm... I bet the caramel swirl was amazing! I love caramel. I might have to give your variation a try soon. Glad you enjoyed the recipe.
