CINNAMON ROLL MUFFINS

These fluffy muffins are filled with cinnamon swirls and topped with a vanilla icing. They look just like cinnamon rolls, but in a muffin form.
Ingredients: muffin base
  •  3/4 cup granulated white sugar
  •  1 large egg
  •  1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  •  2 tsp baking power
  •  1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  •  1/4 cup vegetable oil
  •  3/4 cup fat free milk
  •  1 tsp vanilla extract
cinnamon swirl
  •  1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  •  1 tsp cinnamon
  •  3 tbsp butter melted and hot
vanilla glaze
  •  1 cup powdered sugar
  •  1/4 tsp vanilla
  •  1-2 tbsp milk
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a regular muffin tin with cupcake liners (12 total).
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and egg until combined. Add in remaining muffin base ingredients and whisk until batter is smooth.
  3. Fill each muffin cup about 1/2 full. You will have leftover batter which you will add later
  4. In a small bowl, mix hot melted butter, cinnamon and brown sugar. The mixture should have the consistency of a thick liquid. Add a small dollop of mixture into each muffin cup (about 1/2 tsp each) and swirl it a few times into the batter with a fork, careful not to let it completely mix. You want the cinnamon sugar mixture to remain as swirls in the batter. You should only use less than 1/2 of your cinnamon sugar mixture for this step, reserving the rest for later. Add remaining muffin batter to muffin cups, covering the swirled mixture. Each muffin tin should be about 2/3 full and you should have enough batter for 12 muffins.
  5. At this point, your cinnamon swirl mixture is likely getting a little more solid. If this is the case, heat it in the microwave for a few seconds, so it becomes very fluid again. Add mixture into something with a narrow spout to pour out of, like a syrup dispenser, a beaker, or a small liquid measuring cup. You want something that will control the flow and pour just a thin line of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Make a cinnamon spiral on top of each muffin (like in photo). If your mixture gets too thick, you can always reheat it again for easy pouring.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes until muffins are puffy and knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let muffins cool in baking pan.
