Easy Cinnamon Muffin Recipe

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.
