Cinnamon and nutmeg flavored mini-muffins.

Top Review by CindiJ

This is a wonderful breakfast treat. My sons didn't like muffins when they were little but loved cake. I made this in a 7x9 pan, sprinkled with the cinnamon/sugar mixture, added some chopped pecans over the top and baked. When done, poked holes all over (using a wooden skewer) and poured the melted butter over the top. Same great taste and they were happy little campers. I still do this when they come home for holidays or hunting trips. Thanks for posting this great breakfast classic!!
