Snickerdoodle Muffins

Many years of being married and having 6 children has often led to "breakfast boredom"...so as I ventured from one recipe to another trying to "shake things up a bit" I came across this recipe for "Snickerdoodle Muffins"...I think they are quite tasty and go really well with a bowl of fruit and a glass of juice (or milk).

*I love making muffins because I can make enough for breakfast PLUS freeze some for another time when I DON'T have time to make breakfast...I hope that you have found this to be helpful for your family and busy lifestyle too.

Snickerdoodle Muffins

1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. salt
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
1/3 c. melted butter

topping:
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/3 c. melted butter

In a mixing bowl, blend all dry ingredients. Make a pond in the center of mixture and add the egg, milk and melted butter. Stir until well moistened. (Batter will probably be lumpy). Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins (spray tins with pan coating or line with muffin cups) and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees.
Meanwhile, combine sugar and cinnamon for topping. When muffins are finished baking dip the tops in the melted butter and then quickly into the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Serve immediately.

Happy Cooking~
