Delicious Cinnamon Muffins

Cinnamon Muffin Recipe

Whenever I am feeling domestic I seem to make muffins.  Lots of flavors come to mind when I think of muffins and these cinnamon muffins with a crunchy sugar cinnamon topping are family favorites.

Muffins are easy to make and don’t require too much kitchen equipment, mostly a good stand mixer and some muffin tins.  The ingredients are surprisingly basic and the result is a delicious muffin.  Add to that the bonus of having your house smelling like fresh baked muffins for hours.

I generally don’t use muffin cups, my non-stick muffin pans seem to work just fine.  However, if you are going to be taking your treats to a different location you may want to use muffin cups, it does make it easier to transport and carry these goodies.

Cinnamon Muffins With Muffin Cups

I originally found this recipe online and really like it.  It’s very easy to make and I truly love a good muffin.

Ingredients

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 4 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Grease your muffin tins or line with muffin cups.

  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In another bowl, beat together the milk, vegetable oil, and eggs. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients. Stir just until combined – don’t over mix.  Set your stand mixer on medium low and just mix until all of the ingredients are moist.
  3. Divide the mixture evenly between the prepared muffin cups.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the tops of the batter filled cups.
  5. Bake the muffins until a toothpick instead in the center comes out clean, 13-15 minutes.

You should end up with about 16 muffins.
