Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- 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
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.
