Cinnamon Muffins

Cinnamon Muffins, Easy Breakfast

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

    Can I use regular milk? I don’t have any buttermilk but I have all the other ingredients!

    maybe, but buttermilk is thicker so you might cut the amount a little. i’ve also heard to add lemon juice to milk to make it sour like buttermilk, but i’m not sure that actually works.

    I set out to find the muffin recipe and lost myself in your life…Your blog is wonderful! Thanks for the bottle of cinnamon (John made cinnamon toast for the kids and they loved it) and I can’t wait to try the muffins and the salsa and I will definitely be adding the Barefoot Cookbook to my ever ending desire, to oneday, break into a world of food that i hunger for. I was brought up on good food, but with it comes a lot of meat and pototoes and it becomes the same old thing. My children’s taste puds have conformed, but they are forever changing and with that comes a change of attitude…that looks good! lol

    Thanks again, for your wonderful gift!

    I too, thought I was the only one who didn’t cry, when I sent my children out to spread there wings!
