BEST CINNAMON ROLL MUFFINS
The kids and my husband loved these. However, a lot of the apples fell off the top onto the pan. I suggest putting them in after two of the dough balls, then topping with the third dough ball. Also, I had about twice as much cinnamon sugar mixture as I needed.
These cinnamon roll muffins are soft, buttery, gooey ‘cinnamon roll’ tasting muffins that are delicious and super easy to make!
These turned out great! I was a little skeptical about the frosting because I don’t like Greek yogurt but it was delicious! They were easy to make – I’m keeping this recipe for easy weekend breakfast treats!
Great muffins! I substitute whole wheat flour for 1/2 cup of white, and I use about half brown sugar and half white. I also use applesauce for half of the oil, and that works well. I like Granny Smith apples in these muffins because they hold their shape and flavor nicely (I cut them into big chunks because I like the apples to be noticeable!). I find that extra cinnamon doesn’t dry these out because the apples are so moist. And for the topping, I use 1/4 cup of softened butter instead of 1/2, and this seems to be plenty. I wouldn’t fill the muffin cups more than 3/4 because the muffins do rise, and the topping can be messy in the oven. Overall, this is a great recipe–wonderful flavor, texture, sweetness, moistness, etc. 🙂
I liked this recipe, its simple and easy. I found that if you change some of the ingredients, like instead of 1.5 cups of sugar, I just used one; Instead of 2/3 cups of oil and milk i used 1/3 of both, added an extra egg and some hot water to replace the milk and oil, the mixture turns out more fluffy and light. Nice simple recipe tho 🙂
2 cups all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup sugar
3 tablespoons melted butter, cooled slightly
1 cup milk (plus more as needed)
Topping and Filling

1 tablespoon milk
dash of vanilla
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Generously grease a standard 12 cup muffin tin.
In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients until well combined. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the egg mixture, stirring only until just combined …
