These tasty muffins literally melt in your mouth, and are the easiest thing to make!


  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 11/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 11/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • Topping:
  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 12 medium muffin cups.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.
  3. In a large bowl, mix softened butter, 1/2 cup sugar and the egg thoroughly. Stir in the flour mixture alternately with milk. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. For topping, mix 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl comfortable enough to roll muffins in. Melt unsalted butter in another bowl comfortable enough to roll muffins in. Roll hot muffins immediately in melted butter, then in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Serve hot.


Make sure you have someone else around you when eating these! You could literally eat all of them if not monitored!!!

I used Vietnamese Cinnamon from King Arthur Flour, but any ground cinnamon can be used.
