Cinnamon Muffins

I’m back in the kitchen after some months where work has gotten the better of me. And the kitchen has been neglected… Of course I’ve been cooking, but nothing exciting – and I miss it!

It’s Sunday morning, and I wanted to treat my husband and I with some Sunday-Morning-Muffins. Since it’s officially Autumn in Denmark, I wanted something spicy yet indulgent, so it was absolutely perfect when I found a recipe for Cinnamon Toast Muffins on the Eat, Live, Run blog. I adapted the recipe a bit, so here we go on my Autumn Cinnamon Muffins. They are currently still in the oven, overflowing the house with a delicious scent of cinnamon and vanilla. But as I am absolutely sure that they will be good, I’ll give you the recipe already.

Cinnamon Muffins

Makes 11 cupcake sized muffins

Batter:

1 ½ cup of all-purpose flour

0.75 cups of whole rye flour

0.75 cups of organic cane sugar

½ tsp of cinnamon

½ tsp of cardamom

½ tsp of nutmeg

A pinch of vanilla powder

1 ½ tsp of baking powder

0.75 cups of organic 1.5% milk

1/3 cup of neutral vegetable oil (I believe that coconut oil would also be amazing!)

1 organic egg

Topping:

4 tbsp organic butter

½ cup organic cane sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

Pre-heat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius. Mix dry ingredients in one bowl and wet in another. Combine the two, stirring until mixed well. Scoop the batter into a muffin pan or cupcake tins – I use silicone forms. Bake for around 20 minutes, or until a knife inserted in a muffin comes out clean.

For the topping, heat the butter and mix in sugar and cinnamon. Dip each muffin top in the mixture, and leave to cool slightly. The topping will crisp up.

1 cup = 2.5 dl

Enjoy, preferably with a nice cup of tea and someone you love by your side. I will be serving mine to my husband in bed very soon, with a steaming cup of his favourite french-press coffee. As my camera have been stolen, I cannot show any pictures just yet…

    This recipe sounds amazing, I have an obsession with bran muffins and with cinnamon so I have a feeling I’ll love these.

    Thanks for the recipe.

      I can now tell you that they are absolutely amazing! You could even sub some of the all-purpose flour with some whole grain spelt – I think that would be great…
