Yesterday my husband and I decided to rent a movie from Redbox. He wanted to see an action movie – movies which I also wanted to see, but I really wanted to see Dolphin Tales. We agreed on one and he went to pick it up. He came home with Dolphin Tales – a true act of love on his part. It was a great movie – full of sugary sweetness (and lots of cheese to go with it), something I always enjoy. So we thought, “why not watch a sugary sweet movie with a sugary sweet treat?”
1/3 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg (preferably room temperature)
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 tsp. cinnamon
In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients. Next, add all of the wet ingredients. Mix together till combined, but still lumpy. Scoop the batter into a muffin tin which has been sprayed with cooking spray. I got 12 small muffins, but if you pour the batter more generously you will probably get around 8. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 or until the edges of the muffins begin to brown.
For the topping, melt butter in a small bowl. Then combine the sugar and cinnamon in another small bowl. Dip the warm muffins in the melted butter and then cover with the cinnamon sugar mixture. If you are only dipping the top, I recommend cutting the topping in half. I dipped the whole muffin, however.
(Note: These are good anytime, but they are especially good just out of the oven.)
