I recently went through some recipe files and found this old gem of a mini muffin recipe. I've used this recipe for breakfasts, treats for school, and gifts for neighbors. It's simple but delicious!
Here's what you need:
1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teas baking powder
1/2 teas salt
1/2 teas cinnamon
1/2 teas nutmeg
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk (see note below if you don't have buttermilk on hand)
5 TBSP butter, melted
In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. In another bowl, blend the egg, buttermilk and melted butter together. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon into paper lined mini-muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Melt another 2 TBSP of butter. Combine 2 TBSP sugar and 1/4 teas cinnamon. While the muffins are still warm, dip the tops of each one into the melted butter, then into the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee!
*Note: If you don't keep buttermilk on hand, as I usually don't, simply place 1/2 TBSP vinegar into a measuring cup. Add enough milk to equal 1/2 cup. Allow to stand for 10 minutes.
