We have a snow day today. And if you're anything like me, you try to be productive in your home and find this a good time to cook food. But I have a ton of leftovers from food I'd made earlier this week, so I find myself uninspired to make more food at this time. And I elected not to run to the grocery store in a panic yesterday. I had my toilet paper. I had my milk. I had my leftovers. I'm good for a few days as far as I'm concerned. But maybe you want to bake and need a little inspiration. I'm here for you. And so is this recipe.
I made these mini muffins last week. They are simple and I'm guessing many of you have the needed ingredients already. So bake away, you won't be disappointed. They taste a little like Snickerdoodles...for breakfast!
Cinnamon-Sugar Mini Muffins (makes 2 dozen mini muffins)Ingredients:
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp ground allspice
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup fat-free milk
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 2 TB sugar
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and allspice. Combine the egg, milk and butter; mix well. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon into greased or paper-lined mini muffin cups.
Bake at 400° for 12-14 minutes or until muffins test done. For topping, combine sugar and cinnamon.
Brush the tops of warm muffins with butter; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
