Description

Tender vanilla muffins are drenched in melted butter and then rolled in cinnamon & sugar for a sweet and crunchy coating that makes these muffins out of this world!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg ((I use fresh))
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup melted butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray (only spray 9 of the cups).
  2. In a small bowl, beat shortening, 1/2 cup sugar and egg until smooth. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg; add to the sugar mixture alternately with milk.
  3. Fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  4. Meanwhile, combine cinnamon and sugar in a shallow bowl, set aside. Melt butter in a shallow bowl. Roll hot muffins immediately in melted butter, then in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Serve warm.

Notes

I pour a little water into the empty muffin tins before I put the pan in the oven.
