Tips for easy cinnamon muffins recipe:
- Use unsalted butter or else the muffins will become very salty.
- To enhance the “spice” in these muffins, add some nutmeg and allspice.
- Buttermilk makes these muffins very moist. Don’t omit it or replace it with other types of milk.
- Homemade buttermilk can be made by mixing together 1 cup whole milk with 1 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar.
- You must use all-purpose flour for the best texture. Whole wheat flour makes the muffins very dense and heavy.
- Allow the muffins to cool down completely before coating them in butter and sugar because if they are hot, the sugar will start melting and it will become very sticky and messy.
Variations of moist cinnamon muffin recipe:
- Cinnamon Streusel Muffins– Add a streusel topping, prior to baking for a crumbly crunch.
- Healthy Cinnamon Muffins– These are not exactly super healthy muffins and sugar cannot be replaced but butter can be replaced with coconut oil.
- Apple Cinnamon Muffins– Add 1/4 cup finely chopped apples in the batter.
- Banana Cinnamon Muffins– Serve these muffins with sliced bananas and syrup on top.
