Cinnamon-Sugar Muffin Puffs


MHS: Introduction to Foods and Nutrition*

Ingredients:
Muffin batter:
1 egg
¾ C milk
½ C vegetable oil
2 C all purpose flour
1/3 C sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

Topping:
½ C butter, melted
½ C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Directions:
Heat oven to 400°.

Grease bottoms only of 12 medium muffin cups (use shortening or coat with non-stick cooking spray).

Gently mix or sift dry ingredients in a medium bowl until well combined. In a separate bowl, beat egg. Add milk and oil to egg, and stir to mix.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour egg mixture into well; mix just until flour is moistened (batter will be lumpy).

Fill muffin cups about ¾ full. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Immediately remove from pan.

While still very warm, dip muffin tops in ½ C melted butter; then roll tops in mixed sugar and cinnamon.
