How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 350°F. Line a standard 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.

Step 2

Combine the butter and sugar until fluffy in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the eggs and egg yolks, one at a time, then the vanilla. Add the flour mixture and the buttermilk into the sugar and egg mixture in increments, starting and ending with the flour mixture. Fold in the walnuts.

Step 3

Divide the batter between the liners. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the cupcakes comes out with just a few moist crumbs, 22 to 25 minutes. Transfer cupcakes to a rack to cool completely.

Step 4

Prepare the frosting: Beat the butter and confectioners’ sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the maple syrup and salt. Top the cupcakes with the frosting and chopped walnuts, if desired.
