Ingredients:

  • For the Muffins:
    • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
    • ½ cup sugar
    • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
    • ½ tsp salt
    • ¼ tsp nutmeg
    • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, melted, plus more for greasing the pan
    • 1 egg, room temperature, lightly beaten with a fork
    • ½ cup warm milk (low-fat or whole milk)
  • For the Cinnamon Sugar Coating:
    • ⅓ cup sugar
    • ¾ tsp cinnamon
    • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 12-count non-stick muffin tin with butter or cooking spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.
  3. Add the warm milk, lightly beaten egg, and 5 tbsp melted butter to the dry ingredients. Stir until combined but still lumpy (avoid over-mixing).
  4. Divide the batter evenly into the prepared muffin tin using a spoon or an ice cream scoop. Each cup should be filled about 1/3 full.
  5. Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the muffins are golden at the edges and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. For the topping, mix together 1/3 cup of sugar with cinnamon in a small bowl. In another small bowl, melt the remaining 3 tbsp of butter.
  7. Once the muffins are baked, dip the warm muffin tops briefly in the melted butter, then generously dip or roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture. You can coat the sides of the muffins with cinnamon sugar as well.
  8. Place the coated muffins on a wire rack to cool.
