Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

These little morsels of delight are a wonder.

They just... Disappear.

Seriously, because they're THAT good.

Think back to when you were a kid and every once in a while, for breakfast, you got warm buttered toast that cinnamon sugar was sprinkled on...

Yeah, these babies are BETTER than that.

Warm, out of the oven, these muffins are dipped in warm melted butter and rolled in cinnamon sugar. 

Warm muffin, warm butter and cinnamon sugar...

Okay, okay. I went into a little coma there, sorry.

One of the secrets as to why these are just so dang good is the butter nutmeg. I add more, cuz I luv it.

You seriously must make these, and they're not hard. 

The hard part is trying not to eat more than 1 (okay, maybe 3) at one sitting.

So grab a good cup of coffee, tea or ice cold milk and ...


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
pinch of salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter-melted

1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup butter-melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Make a well in the center of the mixture. Stir together egg, milk and 1/3 cup melted butter. Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir until just moistened (batter may be lumpy). Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.

Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Meanwhile, combine 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. When muffins are finished baking, dip tops of muffins in the melted butter, and then in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve warm.
