  • 1/3 cup butter (melted)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg (best at room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • For the topping
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Method of preparation:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt.

Make a well in the centre of the mixture. Whisk together the egg, milk and 1/3 cup melted butter.

Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just moistened (the batter may be lumpy).

Spoon the mixture into the prepared muffin cups.

Bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.

While the muffins are baking, mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup melted butter and cinnamon.

Immediately after baking, dip the tops of the muffins into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Serve the muffins warm.
