For the past couple days, I've been craving cinnamon. Anything cinnamon sounds wonderful to me right about now. And I don't know the reason. All I know is, I want something with cinnamon.
I had a few thoughts poppin in my head as to what I wanted to make that had cinnamon. I wanted to do a cake, but not many people would eat it in my house, so I crossed that out. The people in my house rarely eat cake. They only eat it on special occasions. How they do it remains a mystery to me.
Then I thought; Cinnamon Rolls? No, to time consuming. This went on for a while because I wanted to make something that everyone in the house would eat. So, I went around asking everyone. To my surprise, they all said a muffin would be great. Yes! And I love muffins! And I don't make them often.
I came up with a muffin that has a muffins topping. One with lots of cinnamon on the top. I was jumping up in down in excitement after opening the oven with that wonderful cinnamon smell coming out from it. I couldn't wait for the first bite; And as I soon as I took a bite, I've now declared this the best muffin I've ever had. It's almost like a doughnut! Seriously! Except, with out the guilt and added ingredients! A must try.
2 cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 large eggs
1 cup plain yogurt
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
4 to 8 tbsp. oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 stick of butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 400 degree. Line a standards muffin pan with paper cups.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, sugar, oil and vanilla. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture. Do not over mix.
3. Divide batter among the muffin cups and bake for about 12-15 minutes.
4. While the muffins are baking, melt 1/2 stick of butter and place in a bowl large enough to hold a muffin. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small shallow bowl. As soon as the muffins are done, dip them in the butter and then roll them in the sugar mixture. Set on a rack to cool.
