Ready In:
22mins

Ingredients:

13

Serves:

12

  • For the muffins

  • 2

    cups flour

  • 1

    tablespoon baking powder

  • 12

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 12

    teaspoon salt

  • 2

    large eggs

  • 1

    cup plain yogurt (not non-fat)

  • 23

    cup packed light brown sugar

  • 4 -6

    tablespoons oil

  • 1

    teaspoon vanilla

  • 1

    teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

  • For the topping

  • 14

    cup butter, melted

  • 14

    cup white sugar

  • 12

    teaspoon cinnamon

directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line standard muffin tin with paper cups, or grease thoroughly.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, brown sugar, oil, vanilla, and cinnamon (if using).
  • Carefully add flour mixture, blending just until moistened. (Resist the urge to over-mix! Batter is not suppose to be smooth).
  • Divide batter among the muffin cups. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in one of the muffins comes out clean.
  • While the muffins are backing, melt the butter in a small bowl. In a separate small, shallow bowl, combine white sugar and cinnamon.
  • As soon as the muffins are finished baking, dip them one at a time into the melted butter. Roll (if using paper muffin cups: dip) them in the cinnamon sugar mixture, then set on a rack to cool.
  • Enjoy!

    DELICIOUS! These taste kind of like a snickerdoodle, which I happen to adore. I did add more cinnamon, probably close to a tablespoon, and I used more in the topping as well, again probably close to a tablespoon. I had a little leftover butter but barely enough cinnamon/sugar, so next time I would probably use 3 T. butter and increase the cinnamon/sugar by half. These are just fantastic, I will absolutely be making them again. Made for PAC Spring ’11.

    It was great! It really fluffed up and had a great aroma and taste with an unbelievable texture. I did tweak it a bit, I added raisins to it and added a bit more cinnamon.

    I have made this recipe several times now, and everyone loves it. I have tweaked it a little bit; I put 1 Tbsp Cinnamon and 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, and instead of the melted butter/cinnamon sugar I use sugar gems for sparkle and a yummy crunchy topping.

    These were FANTASTIC! Everything seemed to work out to the perfect proportions for me 🙂 . I did add cinnamon (1 tbls.) to the muffin itself. made for Spring PAC,2011.

    Flavor and texture was okay, but I was hoping the muffins would have a bit more punch. I think I will make them again, but with a lot more cinnamon.
    Thanks for posting.
