Cinnamon Sugar French Breakfast Muffins


The original recipe was for French breakfast donuts but I wasn't about to go buy a donut pan so I improvised with mini muffin tins and boy were these delicious! One of my favorite breakfasts growing up was toast with butter and cinnamon sugar...mmm I can taste it now. These little muffins are the perfect sweet treat in the morning (okay or in the afternoon or after dinner). I made these when we had family in town and our little cousins loved them too!

Ingredients

Muffins
5 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cups flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup milk 

Glaze topping
3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon

  1. Cream together butter and sugar until fully combined.  
  2. Add egg and mix well.
  3. Mix in flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and milk.
  4. Grease mini muffin pans and scoop batter to fill each tin about 3/4 full
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes
  6. Meanwhile melt 3tbsp butter in a shallow dish and stir in the sugar and cinnamon
  7. When muffins are done, take them out of the tin immediately swirl the tops into the cinnamon/sugar/butter mix.
  8. Let cool/dry on a baking rack
  9. Makes 24 mini muffins

I found this recipe in one of my 1970's cookbooks...made them for years on CHRISTMAS MORNING..the only diff I see is that I dip the muffin in butter then [in another bowl] swirl the muffin top around in the sugar and cinnamon mix;YUMMO
