Cinnamon-Sugar Muffins

If you have never had these muffins, be prepared to fall in love!  Yes, they are that good!  They taste just like a cinnamon donut!  Yes, a donut and you can make them at home in no time at all.  You don’t even need a mixer, just two bowls a muffin tin, fork and the ingredients.  OMG-Enjoy!!
  • 1-¾ cup flour
  • 1-½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup oil
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup milk

For the Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350º.  Spray muffin tin generously with baking spray.

Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

In a separate bowl, whisk together oil, sugar, egg and milk.

Add dry ingredients to wet and stir to combine.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile melt butter in a medium bowl, in a separate bowl blend sugar and cinnamon evenly.

As soon as you remove muffins from oven, gently remove from muffin tin.  If they seem to be sticking to pan, run knife around edge to help release.

One at a time roll muffin in butter than transfer and roll in cinnamon – sugar mix.

Place on rack to continue cooling.

So Good!
