Cinnamon Muffins

(12 servings)

  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg - beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Prepare 12 muffin cups with grease or muffin papers.

In a large bowl, sift together flour, half of the sugar, salt and the baking powder.

In a separate medium bowl, stir together egg, milk and oil. Add egg mixture to the flour mixture. Stir just until moistened.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

In a small bowl, mix together remaining sugar with cinnamon. Sprinkle over top of muffins.

Bake 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out batter-free.

Note: To make cinnamon-raisin muffins, you can also add a half cup of raisins to the base batter.

These muffins are hearty and taste almost like biscuits. Don't expect them to be super sweet dessert-style muffins. Heaven with a pat of butter.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Stephanie for this recipe.
