Sometimes, I really…

really…

…really get to craving a warm cinnamon roll complete with a gooey cinnamon filling and a heavenly maple glaze dripping off the edge. Yum! Unfortunately, I don’t always have time to whip up a batch of homemade cinnamon rolls and I have to make other arrangements, my friends. These wonderful Cinnamon Roll Muffins are a fabulous substitute, truly. You can make a batch in about 30 minutes and they are loaded with fabulous cinnamon flavor and that maple glaze I love so much.

Hope some of you get a chance to try them! My family gave them 7 thumbs up. 🙂

Let me show you how to make it happen!

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
2. Into a medium-sized mixing bowl place 2 C flour, 1 Tb baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 C sugar. Toss it around with a fork to combine.

3. In a large glass measuring cup melt 3 Tb butter. Add 1 C milk and stir to combine. Add 1 egg and whisk it into the mixture. Pour this mixture into the dry ingredients.

4. Stir it in, but not completely. You want to be sure not to overmix. Just mix it in a bit…we are going to add some of the yummy cinnamon mixture as well.

5. To make the cinnamon mixture, melt 3 Tb butter in a small mixing bowl. Add 1 C brown sugar, 1 Tb cinnamon and a dash of salt. Stir to combine.

6. Fold half of the cinnamon mixture into to batter.

7. Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners. Spray with cooking spray and fill them just a bit more than half way full.

8. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon mixture over the top of each muffin.
9. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the muffins to rest in the tins for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.

    These cinnamon roll muffins did not disappoint! I got up and baked these for my daughters birthday breakfast because around here there is nothing greater than your cinnamon rolls for breakfast, but on a school day they are a little tricky for me to pull off. Here are some of my favorite quotes from the morning: “Sister Eskelson is a genius!” and my little guy said, “I don’t know what to ask for on my birthday, I think I might ask for these instead of cinnamon rolls, which is saying a lot!”
    Thank you, Jamie! You’ve done it again!

    I made these a few days ago and they are wonderful! I am not a frosting fan so I left that off and everyone adored them. They are sweet enough without it and really tasty. I will make these often.. thanks!

    I’m not sure about these. The flavor is great, but every time I make these the crumb topping melts off the muffins and all over my muffin tins. What am I doing wrong?

      Mine did the same thing! Hopefully someone will answer because these are amazing otherwise!

        Hi Laura,
        As I mentioned to Rebecca…I would try filling the muffin tins less full with batter. That should give the topping more of a chance to incorporate with the batter, instead of just running off of it. As an added bonus you’ll also yield a few more muffins. 🙂
        Hope this helps!
        Best,
        ~Jamie

    I am baking these as I write.
    For the topping I added a little flour to make it more of a streusel topping. They look and smell pretty good so far. The family is already waiting to enjoy them.

    I found this recipe from link hopping and decided to try this. I was a bit apprehensive about this recipe I tried something like this before and it turned out like crap. I was very surprised at how well these turned out and before I knew I they were gone. This one is a keeper.

    I have never sprayed cupcake papers with cooking spray. Any tricks to do this?
