Connie's Addiction

special blog post just for Connie because she's addicted to these haha but really, how can you resist cinnamon sugary goodness? you can't and these are so easy to make so there's no reason for your house to only smell like cinnamon in december... its ridiculous to wait for the holidays and snickerdoodles lol so lets spread the cinnamon sugary goodness all year round :)

Cinnamon Donut Muffins
-2 cups flour 
-1 tbsp baking powder
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-1 tsp cinnamon
-2 large eggs
-1 cup  yogurt
-2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
-4 tbsp oil
-1 tsp vanilla extract

For the topping:
-1/2 a stick of butter, melted
-1/4 cup sugar
-1 tsp cinnamon

sift together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon)
in a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, yogurt, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla
add the dry ingredients to the wet... mix until just incorporated, don't overmix (there will be clumps)
line cupcake pans and fill each one about 2/3 full
bake at 400 for 12-15 min or until a toothpick comes out cleanly

while the muffins are baking, melt the butter (microwaving it is fine) and put it in a bowl large enough to hold a muffin
combine the sugar and cinnamon in another bowl
once the muffins come out of the oven, dip them in the melted butter and then in the cinnamon/sugar mixture
let the muffins cool completely on a rack
