These moist muffins are dusted with a cinnamon and sugar topping prior to be being baked. Slather with a pat of butter and enjoy them warm.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • For the topping:
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F and line a muffin tin with paper-liners.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the cinnamon topping and then set the bowl aside.
  3. Place the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg into a bowl and mix well. Add the butter to the mixture and combine until the texture resembles a coarse crumble.
  4. Stir in the eggs and the buttermilk, mix until just blended, and then transfer the batter to the prepared muffin tin filling each cup two-thirds full with batter.
  5. Sprinkle each muffin with some of the cinnamon topping and then place in the oven. Bake the muffins for 25 minutes or until the center of a muffin springs back when gently pressed.
