My kids love muffins, especially cinnamon muffins. These are super easy to whip up and the cinnamon sugar topping makes them extra special. These are good served for breakfast or as snacks.
2/3 cup butter or margarine
2/3 cup sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
Preheat oven to 350. Grease Muffin Pan. Cream together the margarine and sugar. Add eggs and beat well. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then add to creamed mixture or alternating with the milk and mix well. Fill your greased muffin cups half-full. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
For the topping:
Mix together sugar and cinnamon. Dip the muffins in melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar. Serve warm.
An alternative method is that you can actually spoon a tablespoon or so of the cinnamon/sugar mixture onto each unbaked muffin and swirl it with a butter knife before baking.
