Sugar and Spice Muffins

One of my favourite morning treats is a sweet muffin and a hot coffee. I sit down at my computer, sip, eat and enjoy the quiet time. Sugar and Spice Muffins are the perfect addition to your morning routine. Indulge a little…every once in a while.

What I like most about these muffins, besides the taste, is that they are super easy to prepare. You can easily whip up a dozen muffins in 30 minutes. Your kitchen is going to smell SO delicious. I promise.

The muffins taste a little like a cake. They are moist, not overly sweet with a hint of nutmeg. 

The topping is a blend of melted butter, cinnamon and sugar. Think Snickerdoodles. Yummy! 

This recipe reminds me of that childhood poem that goes, “Sugar and spice and everything nice!”.

How to Make Sugar and Spice Muffins

Start by preheating the oven to 350F. Grease a muffin tin and set aside. You don’t need to use paper liners for this recipe.

In a large bowl, stir the flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg together.

In another bowl, mix together the vegetable oil, sugar, egg and milk. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and stir to combine. 

Fill the greased muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let muffins cool slightly before removing from the pan.
