The recipe for these muffins was given to me by my brother who recently made it for us when we visited him. He found the recipe in the Iowa City Press-Citizen newspaper dated December 25, 2010.
I have not made them yet but have tasted them and want to pass the recipe along quickly so that you can all enjoy it sooner rather than later. They are delicious!
3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
10 tablespoons butter, melted & slightly cooled (or you can substitute oil for the butter)
For the topping:
1 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar blended with 1 tsp cinnamon
Grease a 12-cup muffin pan
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Melt the butter and let it cool slightly
Pour the first five ingredients into a large mixing bowl
Add the beaten eggs and melted butter and mix well to combine
Add in the milk stirring just until combined; you will have a thick, rough batter
Fill the muffin pan with the filling, about 3/4 full with the batter for each one
Bake for about 20 minutes
Allow to cool for a few minutes
Then dip the top of each muffin in the melted butter and roll it in the sugar/cinnamon mixture
Serve warm. Makes a dozen muffins.
