These are moist and cakey and rolled in cinnamon sugar. The recipe is from Martha Stewart's "Everyday Food" (Nov. 2010). It's also good with a little added vanilla to the batter. The magazine said the recipe makes 12 muffins, but I got about 18. This also make great mini muffins; bake for about 15 minutes. Muffins may be frozen up to 3 months. Reheat in a 350 F oven, then coat in butter and sugar.
