  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 c milk
  • 1/3 c butter softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 c butter melted
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 c sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine dry ingredients. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat egg, milk, butter and vanilla.
  • Gradually beat in dry mixture until moist.
  • Grease mini muffin pan {easier without liners} and fill each just over 2/3 full. Bake 12 minutes. Allow to cool 5 minutes.
  • Remove muffins from pan. Coat muffins in butter, then roll in cinnamon sugar mixture.



If you use salted butter, eliminate salt from the recipe.
For the best results, don't overfill and don't over bake.
Store the cinnamon sugar muffins (that haven’t been dipped in butter, cinnamon and sugar)  in an airtight container for up to 3 days. To serve, warm the muffins and dip it butter followed by cinnamon sugar mixture.
