I like to make my mini. A more suitable size for my kids, and more melt-in-your-mouth!
You will need:
- cooking spray for muffin tins
- 1/3 c butter, melted
- 1/2 C white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1.5 C all purpose flour
- 1.5 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 C milk
- 1/4 C white sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 C butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a medium bowl, mix together dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir until well mixed.
Scoop batter into a prepared muffin tins (fill each one 3/4 full). This makes ~24 mini muffins (or 10-12 regular sized ones).
Bake for 18-22 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix sugar and cinnamon in a small shallow dish. Place melted butter in a second small shallow dish.
When the muffins are done, cool in tins until you are able to handle them. Then dip the top of each muffin in the butter and then in the sugar/cinnamon. Cool completely on a cookie rack.
Enjoy! These are fantastic when they are still warm!
Here is a simple baby gift idea...
A couple in our small group just had a baby girl and I made this pretty package to give them.
I used a heart-shaped basket, lined it first with parchment paper, and then a layer of saran wrap. I filled it with the muffins, wrapped the muffins up in the saran and parchment paper.
Then I wrapped the whole thing in tulle and closed it first with a pipe cleaner, and then pink ribbon. Simple and sweet!
