Cinnamon Sugar Muffins taste just like a donut, but are baked and much easier to make.
Cinnamon Sugar MuffinsIf you have never had these muffins, be prepared to fall in love!  Yes, they are that good because they taste just like a cinnamon donuts.
Yes, a donut and you can make them at home in no time at all.  You don’t even need a mixer, just two bowls a muffin tin, fork and the ingredients.  These would be perfect to make for kids on Saturday morning after a sleep over or for Sunday brunch.  They will last for a 2-3 days covered on the counter, or a week in the refrigerator and re-heated, gently.  They are best the day they are made.
