This is my recipe for a cinnamon muffin. Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices so I wanted to make a muffin with a cinnamon topping on it. So I invited my niece over to experiment with some ingredients. We didn’t imagine how good this muffin was going to taste. It’s a cross between a muffin taste and a doughnut taste. It’s like the best of both worlds. We like to add a lot more of the cinnamon and sugar to the ones we eat, but most people like the 3 tablespoons I have listed in the recipe. You can decide what you prefer but I would suggest starting off with whats listed and then add to it. I hope you enjoy. Happy Eating!
