1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
12 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup raisins
12 cup chopped pecans (I do not use) (optional)
1 cup sour cream
13 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
cinnamon sugar, for sprinkling


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin pans with cupcake papers. Cream together the butter, brown sugar, & egg until light and fluffy. Blend in the buttermilk. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and stir until well mixed. Fold in the raisins (and nuts if using). Fill the cupcake papers 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees about 15-20 minutes or until they test done -- Cool. Mix all the Sour Cream Sauce ingredients together until smooth and well blended. Drizzle over the cooled cupcakes. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
