Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

For dessert, Michelle prepared a Cinnamon Sugar Muffins for the South Arm Older Adults Kitchen. She would love to have churros for the Mexican theme but it will be too tedious to prepare in the 2 hours kitchen.


We baked the muffins in regular muffin tin. You can use mini muffin tins to make little morsel of this. Instead of using paper cup, you’ll have to grease the miniature muffin tin. It will take lesser time to bake the miniature muffins.

For a more luxurious dessert, dip the miniature muffins in melted butter, then roll in cinnamon sugar. Serve warm.


  • 5 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • melted butter, optional
  • cinnamon sugar
