Cinnamon muffins batter:


  • 3 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and line your tray with muffin liners or grease with butter. 
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, sift and combine all the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, cinnamon powder, sugar, and brown sugar.
  • Using another large bowl, combine and mix eggs, milk, vanilla extract, and melted butter. 
  • Add the dry ingredients with the wet ones and mix just enough to combine.
  • Spoon some muffin batter into the muffin tins at about 2/3 of the liners.
  • For the toppings, combine sugar and cinnamon powder in a small bowl.
  • Top each muffin with about 1/4 to 1/3 teaspoon of the sugar-cinnamon mix.
  • Place your tray in the middle of the oven for 20 to 23 minutes or until the top becomes darker in color.
  • Remove each cinnamon muffin from the tin and serve.


  • Cook's Tip #1: Make sure you strain the dry ingredients, especially if your brown sugar tends to have lumps. It's easier to remove the lumps at this stage than in the batter later on.
  • Cook's Tip #2:  Almond extract can also be used if you don't have vanilla extract on hand; both are great for this easy cinnamon muffins recipe.
  • Cook's Tip #3:  You can use a metal whisk if you don't have a hand mixer available.
  • Cook's Tip #4:  For the sugar-cinnamon mix, you can use brown sugar instead of white, if that's your preference.
