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!!

These are so good, easy to make, light, soft, moist and just enough spice. I made them into 6 regular size muffins and had enough left over to make a small kids cake. I did add walnuts to the mix prior to baking. Loved the topping and added a 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg to that. I'll be making these often. Thanks so much for posting.
