Cinnamon Sugar Muffins
It looks like these little muffins are making their way around the blogosphere. I saw them on Cooking with LT about a week and a half ago and she got them from Cook with Sara. They are so cute and I had all the ingredients so I knew I could make them some time between Christmas and New Year's eve and I did. I only keep skim plus milk on hand and wasn't sure if that would be okay. After reaching out to my friends on Bakespace and facebook, I was assured that they would be just find....and they were! Like Laura says, they make more mini muffins/cupcakes than 24 which is what the original poster stated. The more the better, don't you think? If you're looking for an easy, yummy and cute recipe you should definitely try these.
Cinnamon Sugar Mini Muffins (that taste like cupcakes!)
from Cooking with LT
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp. butter, melted (I needed a bit more)
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1) In a mixing bowl, beat together egg and sugar until fluffy. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg; beat just until combined (the mixture will be crumbly).
2)In a measuring cup, combine milk, oil and vanilla; add to flour mixture and mix well.
3) Pour into muffin cups or mini muffin cups lined with papers or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
4) Cool for 10 minutes. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl. Melt butter in a second small bowl. When muffins are cool enough to handle, remove from muffin pans and dip muffin tops in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar mixture.
