Makes 12 muffins

A pinch of nutmeg perfumes the muffin and complements the cinnamon sugar on top. To reheat, wrap muffins loosely in aluminum foil, and bake at 350° for 5 to 10 minutes. Prep: 10 minutes, Bake: 20 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. Whisk together flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in center of dry ingredients.

Step 2

Combine eggs, milk, and 1/3 cup melted butter in a small bowl. Pour mixture into well of dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. (Batter may be lumpy.) Spoon into lightly greased muffin cups, filling three-fourths full.

Step 3

Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Step 4

Combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon in a small, shallow bowl. Let muffins cool just enough to handle; dip tops of hot muffins into remaining 1/4 cup melted butter, then into sugar mixture until coated. Serve warm.

I agree with the previous reviewer - they are extremely dense and REALLY dry....heating them up as recommended makes a slight difference, but you still come away with that stuck-to-your-mouth feeling when you eat it. Great flavor, though. Just wish it was more moist!! Don't know that I'll make it again based on the dryness.
