  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. (See Note*).
  • With cooking spray or liquid vegetable oil, lightly grease a 12 cup muffin pan, or a 24 cup mini muffin pan.
  • In a mixing bowl combine flour, the 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  • In another bowl beat egg slightly; stir in milk and 1/3 cup melted butter or margarine. Add egg mixture to flour mixture.
  • Stir just until moistened (the batter may be lumpy).

  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until muffins are golden.
  • For the topping, melt the 1/2 cup butter.
  • In a shallow bowl combine the 1/2 cup sugar and the 1 teaspoons cinnamon.
  • Immediately dip tops of hot muffins into the 1/2 cup melted butter or margarine, then into the cinnamon-sugar mixture until coated.
  • Muffins are best served warm.
  • Store muffins at room temperature, covered.
  • *Note: If using a dark colored or non-stick muffin tin, bake muffins at 325 degrees, instead of 350 degrees.
