Best Easy Cinnamon Muffins Recipe for Moist and Delicious Muffins

Best-Cinnamon-Muffins-Recipe

When you’re longing for a cinnamon roll but without all the work, then I have an easy solution. My easy cinnamon muffins recipe is tender, light and moist that will remind you more of a cupcake than a plain muffin infused with cinnamon. In this post, I’ll share my recipe and some helpful tips so you can make the best cake like muffins ever.

I have a simple system when I make these muffins. I sift the dry ingredients together in one mixing bowl. In another, I add the wet ingredients before alternating. Since I use canola oil instead of butter, shortening or margarine, I don’t need to work so hard creaming them. The most effort that you need to do is separate the eggs and beat the whites until stiff in another mixing bowl to fold in as the last step. Afterwards, it is just loading the muffin pans.

5 Tips for the Best Muffins

Of course, you don’t have to use cupcake liners. You always have the option of using a non-stick muffin or cupcake pan. However, I always seem to need to wash them anyway. With the cupcake liners, I have less to clean and the muffins are prettier when presented on a dish.

These moist muffins with cinnamon also can be made ahead and frozen. They are just as delectable when you bring them out from the freezer.

I don’t use salt in this recipe with the exception of beating the egg whites with just a light sprinkle of salt from a salt shaker. This ingredient helps the egg whites obtain more volume and stiffness.

The eggs separate more easily when at room temperature. However, I have a trick of rinsing them under hot water from the tap to warm them up when I’m in a hurry. This helps the eggs to separate better than attempting to crack them straight from the refrigerator.

Lastly, for the best cinnamon muffins use a measuring spoon instead of silverware. Measuring spoons will provide a more precise measurement than silverware. Also, make sure to level the baking powder. Adding too much or too little can ruin your baking.

Give my recipe for easy cinnamon muffins a try because it is delicious and a family favorite. I think that once you taste these cake like muffins that you also will want to make them again.
