Cinnamon-Sugar Crusted Coffee Cake Muffins

Ok, doesn't this picture just make you want to make these little gems?? I know I do...easy to whip up and just sooooo good! So treat yourself! You earned it!

Where did the muffin come from?

The name is first found in print in 1703, spelled moofin; it is of uncertain origin but possibly derived from the Low German Muffen, the plural of Muffe meaning a small cake, or possibly with some connection to the Old French moufflet meaning soft as said of bread.The typical American muffin is similar to a cupcake in size and cooking methods. These can come in both savory varieties, such as corn or cheese muffins, or sweet varieties such as blueberry or banana.


1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk

For the Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 350ยบ F. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

In a separate large bowl, whisk together the oil, sugar, egg and milk.

Add the flour mixture to the oil and milk mixture and stir just until combined.

Coat a standard 12-cup muffin pan well with nonstick cooking spray and divide the batter evenly among the cups.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of one muffin comes out clean.

Run a knife around the sides of each of the muffins and shake them out of the pan while still hot. Place them on a wire rack while you assemble your toppings.

In a small, shallow bowl, melt the butter.

In another small, shallow bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.

Dip each muffin first in the butter, then into the cinnamon-sugar, swirling to coat all sides.

Let cool for a few minutes on a wire rack so that the butter and sugar can harden slightly before serving.
