Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients :

  • 1 ½ cups (190g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup (1 stick or 113g) unsalted butter, melted
  • ¾ cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup (60ml) milk
  • 1 ½ tsp (7g) baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp (5g) ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp (40g) sugar (for coating)
  • Cinnamon Sugar Topping :
  • 3 tbsp (40g) sugar
  • 2 tsp (5g) cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp (30g) melted butter


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and gently caress each muffin tin with butter or line them with paper liners. This ensures our darlings will be easily retrieved, maintaining their beautiful shapes.
  2. With love and care, whisk together the melted butter and sugar. One at a time, incorporate the eggs, ensuring each is thoroughly combined before introducing the next. Whisk in the vanilla, evoking an intoxicatingly sweet aroma that will cascade through your kitchen.
  3. In another bowl, meld together the flour, baking powder, salt, and 2 tsp of cinnamon, creating a harmonious blend of dry ingredients. Gently fold this into your wet mixture, alternating with milk, and stirring just until it whispers of unity and balance.
  4. Spoon your beautiful batter into the prepared muffin tins, filling them about two-thirds full, creating a plush bed for them to rise upon during their warm oven embrace.
  5. In a sweet, little bowl, mix 3 tbsp of sugar and 2 tsp of cinnamon. Sprinkle this heavenly mixture atop each muffin, showering them with a cozy, spiced blanket.
  6. Place the muffin tin into your preheated oven, and allow them to bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Imagine them gently puffing up, caressed by the warm oven air, their scent wafting through every nook and cranny of your home.
  7. For our final act of love, combine the cinnamon and sugar for the topping, and gently brush the warm muffins with melted butter before tenderly rolling them in the cinnamon sugar. Oh, the delightful crunch this will add!

Cooking tips :

  • Ensuring that your ingredients are measured with care and accuracy will render a batter that’s just the right consistency and sweetness. A scale or precise measuring cups and spoons are your best baking buddies!
  • Always preheat your oven thoroughly. An oven thermometer can be a handy tool to ensure that the internal temperature is just as you desire, guaranteeing muffins that are baked to perfection every time.
  • A cookie or ice cream scoop can help portion the batter into the muffin tins evenly, ensuring each muffin is a uniform size, which promotes even baking and provides you with a batch of equally delightful treats.
  • When combining the wet and dry ingredients, stir until just combined to maintain a light and tender muffin crumb. Overmixing could lead our precious muffins towards a denser texture.
  • Ensure your baking powder is fresh to achieve that desirable, dreamy lift in your muffins, creating a soft, pillowy texture that will simply melt in your mouth.
