These were wonderful! they are so easy to make. the muffin itself has such a wonderfully buttery flavor and the cinnamon/sugar/butter mix that goes on the top gives it just the right amount of sweetness and flavor. i would maybe put some vanilla in the batter next time, but there will definately be a next time! i loved them. and sooo easy.

This is a great, simple recipe, best served warm -- I've been making it for years, since finding it in a Clabber Girl 'Old-Fashioned Favorites' pamphlet-style cookbook from 1991. Thanks for posting!
