Cinnamon Muffins


I made these muffins for Taido to take to work this week and I have had several requests for the recipe, so here it is!  You probably have everything you need to make these for breakfast tomorrow!  Enjoy!

Cinnamon Muffins

10 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 cup sugar

1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 large egg

Combine 1/2 the sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and baking powder. In a small bowl, combine 6 tablespoons butter, remaining 1/2 cup sugar, buttermilk and egg. Whisk and fold into flour mixture. Stir until just combined.

Pour batter into greased muffin tins. Bake 8 minutes for mini muffins and 15 minutes for regular muffins at 375 degrees. Allow to cool slightly. Then dip muffin tops in remaining melted butter, then in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Makes 24 mini muffins or 12 regular muffins
