Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

picture and recipe borrowed from HERE

what you'll need:

1/3 c. butter, melted

1/2 c. sugar

1 egg (preferably room temperature)

1 1/2 c. AP flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 c. milk


1/2 c. sugar

1/2 c. butter, melted

1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium-large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined, but still a bit lumpy. Don't overmix. Scoop batter into muffin tins that have sprayed with cooking spray. Using a large ice cream scoop, I got 8 medium-large muffins out of this batter; I think you could get 10-12 muffins by distributing the batter a little less generously. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until they just start to turn a bit golden at the edges.

For the topping, mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Place melted butter in another small bowl. Dip the warm muffins in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar.

I love this recipe, but there are a few things i do a bit differently.
i don't sift my dry ingredients. i don't have a clue where my flour sifter do-ma-hicky is and i am in no condition right now to search the back corner of the cupboard i know its in. that will be a post baby rescue mission.
i also don't use an ice cream scoop. i just use the spoon i stirred them with. one less thing to wash! 
i'll be honest... i don't trust my muffin pans to let the muffins out if i spray them... so i either use silicon pans, or muffin papers.
