I've always loved that simple breakfast, with lots of cinnamon and lots of sugar. I decided to turn it into a slightly more upscale treat - Cinnamon Toast Muffins!
Cinnamon Toast Muffins
- ⅓ c. butter, melted
- ½ c. sugar
- 1 egg (preferably room temperature)
- 1½ c. all purpose flour
- 1½ tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. nutmeg
- ½ c. milk
- ¼ c. sugar
- ¼ c. butter, melted
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a medium-large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients.
Add wet ingredients and stir until combined, but still a bit lumpy. (Don’t overmix).
Scoop batter into muffin tins or muffin cups.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until they just start to turn a bit golden at the edges.
For the topping, mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Place melted butter in another small bowl.
Dip the warm muffins in melted butter, then dip/roll the muffin in cinnamon sugar.
Don't these look delicious? And they totally bring me back to my childhood.
What is your favorite childhood treat?
