READY IN: 25mins
SERVES: 28-30




  • Preheat fanforced oven to 180 Celcius.
  • Grease a 12 mini muffin tin.
  • For the cinnamon sugar, mix together the cinnamon and the light brown sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  • For the mini muffins, mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl or jug, mix together the egg, milk and melted butter.
  • Add the wet ingredients all at once to the dry ingredients and mix briefly until just combined.
  • Put a 1/2 teaspoon of the batter into each prepared mini muffin cup. Sprinkle each muffin with a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon sugar, then spoon some more batter and cinnamon sugar into the mini muffin cup.
  • Finish with a layer of batter, dividing it evenly. Using a fine skewer, swirl the mixture in each mini muffin cup to achieve the marbled effect.
  • Bake in the oven for 12-15 mins, or until risen and golden. Cool in the tin for 10 minutes (the sugar mixture will remain really hot, so don't be tempted to try them sooner), then turn out onto a wire rack.
  • Serve warm or cold. These can be frozen too!
