...just the right size for little hands.
Don't worry these mini cinnamon muffins are not JUST for kids. I love that I can have 2 or 3 with out feeling guilty and isn't anything in mini form just so much cuter and fun to eat!? Trust me they will be devoured by kids and adults alike.
Mini Cinnamon Muffins
1/3 Cup Butter or Shortening
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Milk
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 and 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/4 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 and 1/2 Cup Flour( I use 1 cup white all purpose flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour)
3 Tablespoons Butter, melted
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the egg, milk and vanilla. Mix well. Add the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Fill each cavity of a greased Mini Muffin Tin about 2/3 to 3/4 full. You should get 24 mini muffins*. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow the muffins to cool for 2-3 minutes or just until cool enough to handle. In the meantime in a small bowl melt the 3 tablespoons of butter. In a separate small bowl stir together the cinnamon and sugar. Dip each muffin top into the butter and then swirl around in the cinnamon sugar mixture until the top is evenly coated. Place on a wire rack to finish cooling. Enjoy!
*You can also bake these in a regular size muffin tin. Simply adjust the bake time to 20-22 minutes. You will get about 9 regular sized muffins.
