My cinnamon loving nephew is visiting and made these for our breakfast. As usual Kitten a real winner. So easy to make he helped get them in the oven - then while they were cooking went to the garden and picked fresh strawberries to eat on the side. YUM!! So good, I used raw sugar with the cinnamon for topping and it was perfect. Enjoyed with milk for him and hot coffee for me. I'll be making this often

This is an amazing little muffin! The texture is sublime and the buttery crunch of the cinnamon and sugar on the outside put these in a class all by themselves. The nutmeg in the muffin is absolutely a delicious addition. I think my husband nearly devoured the entire batch himself. I think these are going to requested often here.
