Recipe #44: Cinnamon Sugar Muffins  
Cinnamon Sugar Muffins
I've been in the mood for muffins lately and was planning to make some glazed lemon muffins using lemons from the back yard. Only, the lemon tree had another idea as there were none ready to pick! So I decided to make these instead.

I'd made these muffins before, but that was back when I was first learning how to bake. In fact, I'm pretty sure this was the first thing I had ever baked by myself. So I decided to try it again now that I have a bit more experience. The mix was SUPER easy to make, only took me about 7 minutes to put together. In all it took about 25 minutes from start to finish.

So, some changes: I used vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt, as it was what I had and I figured it wouldn't make too much of a difference.
I added some cinnamon to the batter which was an AMAZING CHOICE!
I also accidentally messed up on the topping. I wasn't paying too much attention when melting the butter and, instead of putting the cinnamon and sugar in a separate bowl, I mixed them in with the butter. I tried one without the topping and then put it on the rest, sprinkling a bit of extra cinnamon-sugar on top after. I found without a bit better than with but both were good. Without I could taste the cinnamon in the batter a bit better, with it was much sweeter and the cinnamon was a bit more subtle.

Definitely a keeper recipe!

I found baking to be much easier and I think it made me better at cooking. Muffins and cookies aren't usually too complicated and I think this recipe is a really good start :D

:DD tysm for sharing! i definitely want to give these a go when it gets cooler here [i'm currently living in a tiny apt and it's way too hot to put the oven on, especially as it has a habit of smoking >.>]
