Snickerdoodle Muffins

Ever since making snickerdoodle cookies for the first time, I am determined to try out all kinds of snickerdoodle recipes. I am a huge fan of muffins for breakfast because they are typically a fast breakfast. You just whip up the batter and bake them for 20 or so minutes. The kids loved these. My resident raccoon (he scavenges at night)...and by raccoon, I mean my 5 year old, ate the tops off of about five or six of the muffins in the middle of the night.

Snickerdoodle Muffins - a cinnamon-sugar sweet breakfast! #muffins #snickerdoodle

What you need:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
 Cinnamon-Sugar Mixture:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, melted and cooled

Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Make a well in the center.

In a bowl, mix beaten egg with milk, butter, and vanilla.
Add wet to dry ingredients and mix gently.

Fill a paper-cup lined muffin tin.

Bake at 375* for 15 minutes. Rotate and cook for another 5 to 7 minutes. Cool.

Mix together sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg. 
Dip cooled muffins in butter and then into cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Store in an airtight container!

I've been making a version of these for years- without the nutmeg. Now I am intrigued to add that and see how it is. Sounds delicious- thanks for the idea!
