These are easy to make and really good :)
Mini Cinnamon Muffins
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup plus 1/3 cup sugar, divided
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat mini muffin pan with cooking spray. Combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl; mix well. Combine milk, oil and egg in a medium bowl. Add milk mixture to flour mixture; stir until well blended.
2. Fill prepared muffin cups three-fourths full using about 1 tablespoon batter in each. Bake muffins until golden, about 15 minutes. Remove muffins from pan.
3. Combine remaining sugar and cinnamon in a custard cup or small bowl; blend until smooth. Dip tops of muffins into melted butter, then into sugar mixture. Cool completely on wire racks or serve warm.
Makes about 2 dozens muffins.
** Add 1/2 cup miniature chocolate chips to the batter before baking and omit the cinnamon in the sugar mixture used for the muffin tops. **
