INGREDIENTS

  • 3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. sugar, divided
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 12 tbsp. butter, melted (divided)
  • 2 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 c. milk

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Add brown sugar, 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Whisk to combine. Add egg, milk and 8 tablespoons butter and stir until the mixture is smoother.
  3. Scoop rounded tablespoons of batter into the greased muffin tin. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes about clean, about 12 minutes. Let muffins cool slightly in pan for about 5 minutes then carefully remove them from the pan.
