Cinnamon Muffins

After driving with Offspring3 Sunday morning, I made a double batch of Cinnamon Muffins (which was 20 muffins). The muffins that didn’t get eaten were put into a Ziploc bag and popped into the freezer for later consumption.

This recipe is from 7th grade Home Economics class in Sudbury, Massachusetts. I have to say, we got to make some of the BEST things in that Home Ec class, and I was only there for the second half of the school year. Before over regulation of what can be consumed inside of school buildings.

Basic Bisquick Muffin Recipe

  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Mix together all ingredients. Spray muffin tins with non-stick spray of choice. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake for 10 minutes.

Cinnamon Muffins: Make cinnamon & sugar mixture (2 tablespoons sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon), set aside. Mix Basic Bisquick Muffin Recipe. Fill muffin tins 1/3 full (I use my cookie sized scoop instead of my muffin sized scoop). Sprinkle 1/3 – 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon/sugar mixture over each 1/3 muffin batter. Fill muffin tins to 2/3 full. Sprinkle 1/3 – 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon sugar mixture over the top of each 2/3 full muffin batter.

Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.

(I don’t normally measure my cinnamon & sugar mixture, I keep that premixed in a spice jar (cinnamon toast anyone??) and just sprinkle it over the batter. I did measure while making them on Sunday, to be able to document it accurately.)

One of my Facebook acquaintances posted a recipe for Snickerdoodle Muffins last week. I commented that I had a recipe for Cinnamon Muffins that was an easier version than the posted recipe, and really quick. No one seemed interested. (Horrors! Not feeling validated on social media! Whatever shall I do? Blog about it, I guess!)

The Snickerdoodle Muffin recipe does look great. Reading the ingredient list, I think a better name would be “Snickerdoodle Sour Cream Pound Cake Cupcakes”! I will try them when I have more than 30 minutes.  😉

And…if you are still reading and interested, here is a quick video that explains the differences between muffins and cupcakes.
