Pin It! These are so tasty and great when you want to make something sweet but do not have a ton of ingredients around. That was the case with us today.  The sweet tooth bit and there was not much around.  These did the trick.

You will need the following:

  • 2¼ Cups of Flour
  • ¾ Cups of Sugar
  • 2¼ Teaspoons of Baking Powder
  • ½ Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon of Nutmeg
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • ¾ Cups of Milk
  • 7 Tablespoons of Butter {melted}
For the Topping:
  • ½ Cup of Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
  • 4 Tablespoons of Butter {melted}

  1. Preheat the over to 350°
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine the first five dry ingredients together {flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg} - and mix well.
  3. In a small bowl slightly beat the two eggs with a whisk and add them to the dry mixture - along with the milk and melted butter. Gently stir until the batter is moist and evenly blended.
  4. Lightly spray muffin tin or use liners - I was able to make 15 large muffins.
  5. Spoon the batter into the pans - filling each cup two-thirds full of batter.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile prepare the topping by combining the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl - and melting the additional butter in a separate small bowl. Once the muffins are finished baking, immediately dip the tops into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon-sugar mixture until coated.
  8. Serve warm.
