Baking

Thanks to school, work, friends and my sorority, I don't have a lot of free time. But when I do, I love to bake. When I'm stressed, I bake. When I'm bored, I bake. Needless to say, my friends and family really love me because I shower them in cookies, truffles and brownies. I began baking when I started college, and I haven't stopped since. Some of my favorite desserts to make are oreo balls, cookie dough truffles, chocolate chip cookies and brownies.


Recipe for cinnamon sugar mini-muffins

I found this recipe online through Pinterest last year, and it's one of my favorite muffin recipes to make, so I thought I'd add it to my website for a visitor to try! This recipe has been reposted and slightly edited from Sweet Pea's Kitchen.


Muffins
I made these muffins last fall.

Ingredients (makes about 24 mini muffins):


For the coating:


Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line muffin cups with muffin liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add extra cinnamon and nutmeg if you prefer.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together oil, sugar, egg and milk.
  5. Add the smaller bowl to the larger bowl and stir until combined.
  6. Divide batter equally among muffin cups, filling each cup about 3/4 of the way.
  7. Bake until muffin tops are a pale golden and springy to the touch, which takes about 22 to 24 minutes. You should rotate the cups halfway through the baking time.
  8. While the muffins are baking, combine sugar and cinnamon in another small bowl. Place melted butter in a small bowl.
  9. Once baked, shake muffins out immediately and while hot, dip in melted butter, then roll in sugar and cinnamon.
