Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Lately I have been stumbling upon some of the best recipes!

            These muffins are seriously the most DELICIOUS muffins I've ever tasted!  I found the recipe here

You MUST make these muffins this weekend!  My mom made them for her family this past week and served them with quiche for dinner.  Great idea!

Cinnamon Sugar Muffins


Softened butter for muffin tin (I just used cooking spray)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg (I didn't have any so I just used an extra 1/2 tsp of cinnamon)
1/8 tsp salt
2 extra large eggs
¼ cup canola oil
¾ cup sugar, plus extra for muffin tin
¼ cup brown sugar
¾ cup sour cream
¼ cup buttermilk (I just used regular milk)
1 tsp vanilla extract (forgot to add these and they were still delish!)

for topping

1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cinnamon
¼ cup melted butter


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Butter muffin tin and sprinkle each cup with sugar, being sure to coat all sides.
I skipped this step...just used my cooking spray and called it a day!

3. In a bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.

4. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, sugars, sour cream, buttermilk and vanilla.

5. Fold the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until combined.

6. Using an ice cream scoop, fill each muffin cup.
After adding the batter to the muffin cups I sprinkled cinnamon and sugar right on top and then baked instead of following steps 9 and 10. 
My mom baked the muffins, and then brushed the tops with butter while still hot and then sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on them.

So basically, do whatever you want :)

7. Bake 18 – 22 min.
8. When the muffins come out of the oven, melt butter in a saucepan.
9. In a separate bowl, mix cinnamon and sugar
10. When the muffins are cool enough to handle, brush the tops with melted butter, and then dip into the cinnamon sugar mix.


Serve these to your family this weekend and they will love you forever :)

They are THAT good :)

Have a great weekend!
