easy Cinnamon mini Muffins recipe

Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 360°F(180°C)

2. In a bowl combine eggs, sugar, and vanilla until your obtain a clear and homogeneous mixture (about 3 minutes). Add buttermilk.

3. In another bowl sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon powder. Gradually stir in the first mixture. Don’t mix too much. The batter should be fairly thick.

4. Divide the dough into floured mini muffin pans or a silicon mini muffin pan. Fill each cavity about 3/4-full. Bake for 10 minutes (more or less, depending on size of your muffins). A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. Remove from oven and wait for 10 minutes before removing from the pans and allow to cool on a rack.

5. Melt the butter for the coating and pour into a shallow plate or bowl. In another shallow plate, combine sugar and cinnamon.

6. When the muffins are almost cold, quickly dip the mini muffin into melted butter then coat with sugar and cinnamon. These muffins are best fresh but you can keep them for up to 3 days.
