Have I mentioned my family loves muffins? Well, we do and I tend to make them often however, I usually end up making our favorites over and over. I don’t branch out much and I’m not really sure why. But for Taste of Home Tuesday this week, I’ve made mini cinnamon sugar muffins. While you could make them in a regular size muffin tin, they may be too sweet with all the cinnamon sugar.
So I went looking for something new and found these little gems on the Taste of Home website and thought they would be perfect to share for Taste of Home Tuesday. I’ll say, they were an instant hit with one reservation. Only half of the family liked them rolled in the cinnamon sugar, the other half thought only the tops should be dipped in the sweet stuff. So, that, I’m going to say, is a personal preference. What’s interesting is my boys were split. You’d think kids would like sweeter. I could really go either way. They remind me of a cinnamon donut and that’s not a bad thing. I guess the only way it’s a bad thing is I could, quite possibly, devour all of them! These muffins will keep on the counter, covered in foil for about 2 days if they last that long.
My fellow Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editors are sharing recipes today at the bottom of the post.
