My breakfast cinnamon cake muffins are moist, tender and more cake-like than your average muffins with a generous amount of cinnamon with luscious cream cheese frosting.
Course: Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Cuisine: American
Keyword: breakfast cinnamon cake muffins, cinnamon muffins, coffee cake muffins
Servings: 12
  • 2 cups of sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder leveled
  • 3/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • ½ cups of sugar
  • 6 tablespoons of canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup of milk
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 4 oz. neufchatel cheese or cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup of confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  1. Mix the oil, egg, milk, and vanilla together before stirring in your dry ingredients using your whisk until the batter is smooth.
  2. Pour into greased muffin pans or ones with paper liners before taking to a 350-degree oven. Bake about 15-18 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated.
  3. Test with a toothpick, cake tester or slender knife to see if anything sticks.
  4. Cool for about five minutes in the pans before attempting to take the muffins out.
  5. Frost these breakfast cinnamon cake muffins when cool with the cream cheese frosting.
  6. To Make the Frosting:
  7. Just whisk the neufchatel cheese (I always prefer this one) with the confectioners’ sugar and milk. I don’t even bother with any vanilla because the flavor and way they compliment these muffins are perfect as is. However, if you miss your favorite vanilla or another extract just add.
  8. ENJOY!
