I’m a big fan of muffins. I don’t know why, I guess it’s because I feel like they’re a healthy cupcake I can eat for breakfast? 🙂
Whatever the reason, I just love those personal portion pillows of buttery goodness. (Because I have to put butter inside a warm muffin!)
The muffin I make the most is banana bread muffins, but I have to wait until I have bananas for that. And sometimes, I don’t want to wait. I want a delicious muffin now!
Enter the Brown Sugar Spice Muffin.
It’s incredibly easy and I always have the ingredients on hand.
- 1 cup brown sugar + ¼ cup
- ½ cup butter
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1½ tsp Cinnamon
- Cream together butter and 1 cup brown sugar.
- Add egg and vanilla.
- Mix all dry ingredients together in separate bowl.
- Mix dry ingredients and milk alternately into creamed mixture.
- Put into muffin tins that are greased or have a paper liner.
- Sprinkle remaining brown sugar on top before placing in oven.
- Bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
They’re sweet and aromatic. It’s light and fluffy and reminiscent of farm cooking. I’ve never lived on a farm, but I suspect if I did, I’d be making these treats for my loved ones.
I made these for dinner one night not too long ago. Yes, dinner. We paired it with ham & cheese scrambled eggs and fruit salad. Mmm!
Anyway. I made these for dinner and they were completely devoured. I thought there’d be some left for breakfast the next day, but there wasn’t. And there are only 4 of us!
The sprinkle of brown sugar really gives it a sparkly crunch that is the frosting on the cake. Metaphorically speaking, of course.
