Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cups white sugar
4 eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/4 cups milk, room temperature
1-20oz can cherry pie filling

Cinnamon Vanilla Frosting Ingredients:
1 cup butter
3-4 cups powdered icing sugar
2-3 Tablespoons milk or cream
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla paste

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F
Line two cupcake trays with liners. Set aside.

 

In a large bowl, beat together the butter, oil and sugar until light and completely combined.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition, then the vanilla extract. Set aside.
In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
Gently fold half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture, then the milk, then the remaining flour mixture.

 

 

Portion 1 scoop (approximately 1 to 1 1/2 Tablespoons) of batter into each cupcake liner and bake for 5 minutes.

Cover the cupcakes with remaining cupcake batter (approximately 1 1/2 Tablespoons each).

 

 

Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the cupcakes are completely set and an inserted toothpick comes out without any wet cake batter.

 

 

While the cupcakes are cooling, prepare your vanilla cinnamon frosting.
In a large bowl, beat together the butter and 2 cups of icing sugar for 2 minutes until smooth.
Add 2 Tablespoons of milk, the cinnamon and vanilla and beat well to incorporate. Add additional icing sugar, to taste and texture preferences.
