I love cinnamon!

These are really, really good! I used half whole wheat pastry flour and half all-purpose, and added 1/4 cup golden raisins to the batter. It resulted in lovely cinnamon-raisin muffins that were scarfed down by my hubby and two sons very enthusiastically for breakfast! Thanks for the recipe!

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F; line 11 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together sugars and the egg until smooth. Beat in vegetable oil and vanilla. Working in 2 or 3 additions, alternate adding the flour and the buttermilk to the sugar mixture, stirring until just combined.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together remaining brown sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Fill each muffin cup about 1/2 full. Sprinkle with a scant 1/2 tsp of the brown sugar mixture into each cup. Evenly divide remaining batter on top and sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture.
  6. Bake at 400°F for 15-18 minutes, until a tester comes out clean.
  7. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before eating.
