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.
Ingredients (makes about 24 mini muffins):
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/3 cup oil (or melted butter)
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1 large egg
- 3/4 cup milk
For the coating:
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Line muffin cups with muffin liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add extra cinnamon and nutmeg if you prefer.
- In a small bowl, whisk together oil, sugar, egg and milk.
- Add the smaller bowl to the larger bowl and stir until combined.
- Divide batter equally among muffin cups, filling each cup about 3/4 of the way.
- 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.
- While the muffins are baking, combine sugar and cinnamon in another small bowl. Place melted butter in a small bowl.
- Once baked, shake muffins out immediately and while hot, dip in melted butter, then roll in sugar and cinnamon.
