Cinnamon Muffins

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!

Cinnamon Muffins

Cinnamon Muffins

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.
