Calories: Approximately 200 calories per muffin


  • 1 ¾ cups (210g) all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (120ml) milk

Step-by-Step Guide:

Step 1: Prepare the muffin batter

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter, and eggs until well combined.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.

Step 2: Create the cinnamon swirl

  1. In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar and 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon.
  2. Spoon a tablespoon of muffin batter into each muffin cup, spreading it to cover the bottom.
  3. Sprinkle a generous pinch of the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the batter in each cup.
  4. Add another tablespoon of muffin batter on top of the cinnamon-sugar layer.
  5. Use a toothpick or skewer to gently swirl the cinnamon-sugar mixture into the batter, creating a marbled effect.

Step 3: Bake the muffins

  1. Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  2. Remove the muffins from the oven and let them cool in the tin for 5 minutes.
  3. Transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 4: Enjoy!

  1. Once the muffins are cool, they are ready to be enjoyed. Serve them as a delightful breakfast treat or as a sweet accompaniment to your afternoon tea or coffee.
  2. These muffins are best enjoyed fresh, but you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Tips and Tricks:

  • For an extra burst of flavor, consider adding a handful of raisins or chopped nuts to the muffin batter.
  • If you prefer a more intense cinnamon flavor, increase the amount of ground cinnamon in the batter or the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  • To ensure your muffins have a tender crumb, be careful not to overmix the batter. Stir until just combined.
  • If you don’t have muffin liners, you can grease the muffin tin with butter or cooking spray instead.
