Cinnamon Muffins





I made these last weekend with Dante, my four year old. They are super simple and fun to make and more importantly, they're ridiculously tasty. 

Cinnamon Muffins
makes 18

110 g butter, softened
200 g sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
120 ml milk
300 g all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

topping:
50 g butter, melted
100 g sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon

Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs carefully, one at a time. Add vanilla. Mix together the dry ingredients - flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt, and add this to the batter alternating with the milk.

Fill muffin cups, fairly full - you want them to rise above the top of the cup as they bake.

Bake at 175° C for about 15 minutes - check with a toothpick to make sure they're not sticky inside.

Meanwhile, melt the butter for the topping and let it brown a little. Mix together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Dip the warm muffins in the butter and then into the cinnamon sugar, and place on a rack to cool down.
