  • Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.

  • Beat eggs, milk, white sugar, and canola oil together in a separate bowl; mix into flour mixture until just combined into a batter.

  • Pour batter into prepared muffin cups to about 1/4 full. Top each batter portion with a generous pinch of brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon; top with remaining batter to about 2/3 full.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

These muffins were just ok for me. The muffin was not very sweet. I would suggest adding an additional layer of brown sugar and cinnamon. I also topped mine with it. Read More

Use allot of the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Also don't add to much milk or they will become very thick! I always add a little bit more sugar too.;). Still a good recipe. Read More

Made a few changes based on some other reviews. I added brown sugar and cinnamon directly to the batter and put a layer of the sugar/cinnamon mix both in the middle and on top. I put small pieces of butter on top of each one before I through it in the oven. They look awesome and smell delicious! Still waiting on them to cool so I can taste them:) Read More

I used a 9x9 pan and added a little nutmeg to the brown sugar and cinnamon. I also made layers. It tastes like a coffee cake and I love it. Read More

These muffins were ok. They were not very sweet. I would have added more sugar to the batter. The recipe did not make 24. I was lucky to get 15. I would use butter instead of canola oil to complement the brown sugar. I would try these again with the adjustments but it may be easier to just find a better recipe. Read More

Family and I loved these. Added capful of vanilla and maybe 1/4 cup of brown sugar based on other reviewers saying not sweet enough. Also used self rising flour and omitted salt/soda/baking powder. Rose beautifully fluffy and tasted delicious with cinnamon sugar topping. Read More

The only thing I do differently is use organic coconut oil and it adds a little flavor to the muffin itself. These are great to make ahead for busy mornings. Read More

Definitely could use more sweetness. Maybe even some vanilla or almond extract. What I do since it is a breakfast item is spread some butter in the middle and pour some maple syrup over them while they are warm. I ll definitely be making these again but maybe tweaking the recipe a little to my taste. If you prefer a mild sweet flavor these are perfect for you. I just have a major sweet tooth. Read More
