I’ve mentioned it before, but I kind of have a thing for muffins. I mean really, what’s not to love about a yummy warm muffin (or two) to start off your day? I usually make muffins filled with fruit, nuts, or veggies just so I can pack in as much nutrition as possible. But my boys like plain muffins with no frills, so occasionally I’ll branch out. These fluffy Cinnamon Sugar Muffins totally satisfied them, and I loved them too!Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

They are tender and moist, and I love the layer of cinnamon sugar in the middle. It kind of melts into the muffin, and it is oh so yummy! They smell heavenly as they are baking, and my kids were asking me constantly “When are they going to be done?” They were a huge hit with everyone. They are also super easy to throw together, and that is always a bonus! Recipe for Cinnamon Sugar Muffins Buttery Muffins topped with cinnamon sugarYour whole family is sure to love these muffins.

  1. They are ausome, however i substituted the 1/3 cup of suger for brown sugar, and instead of 2 tsp of vanilla i used 1 vanilla and 1 almond. I love keeping things the same but sometimes i try too get a little creative.
