My kids went to town on these muffins! All 12 were consumed at breakfast. I loved how easy they were to make. I did bake these the night before and in the morning dipped them in the melted butter and cinnamon/sugar topping. We will be having these again since they were so easy and good.

this recipe is fantastic and sooo tasty, best muffin recipe i have tried on here. was unsure as to what flour to use self raising or plain and only had self raising, , worked really well though they rose and were sooo soft too, i mucked up the topping as did not read it properly and melted everything together but still tasted brilliant....will deffo make again as was very easy, might even do the topping properly next time......only managed to get 8 muffins out which were a good size so if you do want more than 8 i would suggest multiplying the recipe to suit your needs

These are pretty tasty and WAY easier than making homemade doughnuts. The amount of butter and cinnamon and sugar for the topping is WAY too much. I think half and you would still have some left over. My kids loved them and I am sure they will get made often!
