Better than store-bought because they taste just like a donut, dipped in butter and coated in cinnamon and sugar. Breakfast can't get any better than that!

Muffins are all the rage in my house on the weekends because anything is better than a cold bowl of cereal. Right?

And if it's sweet and involves sugar my kids are all for it. These cinnamon sugar buttermilk mini muffins are a great companion to frosty cold glass of milk and are easy to just pop in your mouth. I promise you'll eat more than one.

Our dog barks like clockwork every morning around 7 AM. He's up so why shouldn't everyone else in the house be up too. Saturdays are no exception.

With plenty of time to make these fresh from scratch while the rest of the household is sleeping, I get to work in the kitchen. I even have a few furry helpers who are more than willing to help vacuum any crumbs that might fall to the floor.

Sometimes getting an hour to myself on a weekend morning is ideal. It's time to enjoy my coffee while the muffins are baking, read the newspaper and enjoy a little quiet time to myself.

For this recipe I used a mini muffin pan. You can also use a regular muffin pan and simply adjust the cooking time. I've also been known to use a combination of both white and wheat flours for this recipe.

The key to soft moist muffins is the buttermilk. If you don't have it you can use regular milk in place of the buttermilk and simply add 2 teaspoons of white vinegar or lemon juice to the milk.

When using buttermilk in a muffin recipe, you will usually find baking powder listed alongside. That's because baking powder is an alkaline leavener that reacts with the acidity in buttermilk. While baking, the resulting carbon dioxide bubbles expand in the heat of the oven, creating steam that helps produce rounded, moist muffins.

These muffins take almost no time in the oven and are ready in half an hour's time. A quick dunk in melted butter and a dip in some cinnamon sugar and these muffins are ready to be served.
