About this recipe: These simple egg, milk, flour, sugar and spice muffins are given the the delicate glitz of Paris when the tops are dipped in a shimmery cinnamon, sugar and melted butter glaze. Like a sprinkling of stardust, this topping gives these sweet, dainty muffins the taste and sparkle of 'ooh la la'. Magnifique!
First batch had a chemical after taste, but consistency was good. So I reduced baking powder to 1/2 tsp and 2nd batch were very really nice! Put a tsp of nutella in the middle for an extra surprise! - 28 Feb 2015
Very simple and quick to make, light and tasty. My young boys think it's a bit like a pancake in a cupcake. I can recommend it for something a bit different. - 09 Apr 2014
These muffins are awesome! They are a huge hit with the family every time I make them. They work especially well as mini-muffins. ------- Update: I now use this recipe as a base for other muffins, like replace the nutmeg with vanilla and add 1 cup of blueberries. Delish!
