Ingredients

Muffins

2
cups Gold Medal™ self-rising flour
1/2
cup sugar
1/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3
cup milk
1/3
cup butter or margarine, melted, cooled
1
egg

Topping

1/4
cup sugar
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4
cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 Heat oven to 425°F. Grease bottom only of 12 regular-size muffin cups with shortening or cooking spray, or line with paper baking cups. In large bowl, stir together flour, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix milk, 1/3 cup melted butter and the egg until well blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. (Batter will be slightly lumpy.) Divide batter evenly among muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
  • 3 Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
  • 4 Remove muffins from muffin cups. Dip tops of warm muffins into 1/4 cup melted butter; dip into sugar-cinnamon mixture. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

Use a spring-handled #20 or #24 ice cream scoop to fill regular-size muffin cups 3/4 full with batter—just the right amount to give muffins nicely rounded tops.
