Hi, today I am going to share with you a recipe for cinnamon muffins that are great for breakfast, or as a snack whenever. I made this recipe with my brother, Henry, out of his cookbook, The Kids Cookbook By Betty Crocker, which has lots of great recipes in it.
First preheat the oven to 350°F and Grease 12 regular sized muffin cups (or you can do 24 mini muffin cups, we used both).First mix 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of milk, and 1/3 cup of vegetable oil in a bowl. Then add in an egg, and mix until fully combined. Next, add 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. While the muffins are baking, combine 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon in a bowl. Melt 1/2 stick of butter (about 30 to 45 seconds in the microwave) and pour into a bowl. When muffins come out of the oven, cool for 5 minutes on a cooling rack. Next, dip the tops of the muffins in the melted butter, then in the cinnamon-sugar mix. **Tip- I cleaned out an old spice jar, and now whenever I have cinnamon sugar left over from a recipe, I put it in there so I can use it next time.** Now your delicious cinnamon muffins are ready to eat!
