Every mother should have these in her repertoire. One bowl, pedestrian ingredients, and children absolutely love them. These are buttery, sweet, with a soft, pillow-like texture–nothing to get in the way of appreciative grunts. I doubled this recipe and got 17 muffins, so a single will probably yield 8.

  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Combine first five ingredients in a medium bowl. Add milk, egg, and 1/3 c. melted butter, mix gently to combine. Butter a muffin tin, and fill muffin cups 1/2 full and bake for 15-20 minutes, until tops are light brown and springy to the touch. While muffins are still warm, dip in butter and roll in cinnamon and sugar. Serve warm.

    These are really yummy. I'd personally give them 4 hearts, but my kids and some guests from Japan loved them so much, that I have to give them 5 hearts. If you're cooking for kids, these are a guaranteed smash hit! Good to let kids cook themselves too, since they are so easy.

      Mmm. These sound great! I've made a muffin similar, but it used buttermilk.

            • I made these this morning for breakfast and they turned out perfectly. They are tender and moist. Yet, they are a little more bland than I would like. Next time I will probably add more nutmeg and some cinnamon and/or cloves to the mix. Also, I used buttermilk in place of regular milk. My kids devoured these muffins though! Definitely a success!

                  My 19 month old son ate three of these! Only 1 of which I allowed him to eat and the other two were stolen off of the plate. Very moist but I did add a little cinnamon to the mix to give it more of a kick as others said it was a bit bland. Came out wonderful

                              Who would pass a muffin? I enjoy making it and we enjoy eating it. Sharing the tasty muffins is always fun. This is another addition to my muffin recipes. Thanks for sharing!

                                These sound great. Don't the cookies have sour crm? anyone done it that way?

                                  I love these! I make them in the mini-muffin pans so when you eat them, you get a crunch of the sugar crust in every bite.

                                    My man loves snickerdoodles! I'm just breaking into the breakfast/brunch scene, and this sounds like a fantastic way to start off!!
