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 tasty muffins are baking. I’ll read the newspaper and enjoy a little quiet time to myself.

For this original recipe, I used a mini muffin pan. You can also use standard muffin tins and simply adjust the cooking time.

I’ve also been known to use a combination of both white and whole wheat flour for this recipe. Sometimes, I will also make a double batch if I want a lot of muffins.

How to make the best cinnamon muffin recipe

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare the muffins tins by using cooking spray or paper muffin liners.

Gather the dry ingredients from your pantry, including all purpose flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and sugar. Mix well.

Add the wet ingredients next. Using a stand mixer or an electric mixer, stir in the eggs, oil and buttermilk slowly until combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes.

While the homemade muffins are baking, prepare the cinnamon-sugar mixture topping in a small bowl. Melt butter in one small bowl and add the cinnamon and sugar to another bowl.

Remove the muffins from the oven and allow to cool.

Remove the cooled muffins from the pan and dip the tops of the muffins in the melted butter first and secondly, dip them into the sugar mixture.

These warm cinnamon muffins are ready to serve.

The secret ingredient to this cinnamon muffin recipe

The key to soft moist muffins is the buttermilk. The buttermilk makes these muffins light and fluffy.

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 cinnamon streusel muffins take almost no time in the oven and are ready in half an hour’s time.
