Ingredients
Muffin
  • 1 1/2cups self-rising floursee notes to make your own*
  • 1/3cup sugar
  • 1/2cup buttermilk
  • 1teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3cup oil(such as canola)
  • 1cup cinnamon chipssee links in article to make your own.
Cinnamon Glaze
  • 1cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-3tablespoons milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a 12-cup muffin pan (I just rubbed mine with a paper towel dipped in a little extra oil) or line with cupcake liners
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour and sugar.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together buttermilk, vanilla and the egg.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir a few times.  Add cinnamon chips and stir until just combined, being careful not to over-mix.
  6. Scoop into prepared muffin tin (about 3 tablespoons in each.)
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes.  They should be just golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted should come out mostly clean.
  8. Let the muffins cool in the pan about 3-5 minutes as they are very tender and tend to leave their bottoms in the pan if you remove them right away.  I also use a very thin metal spatula or knife to loosen the edge of the muffins before removing.
  9. While the muffins are baking, stir together the glaze ingredients. I like to use my hand mixer or chopper to get out all the lumps.
  10. Once the muffins are removed from the pan, place them on a cooling rack over some parchment or a tray and drizzle the glaze all over the warm muffins.    
Recipe Notes

*Self-rising flour is a lower protein flour with salt and baking powder added.  The lower protein flour helps make a tender biscuit or muffin.  The added salt and flour are a nice baking shortcut!

Make Your Own Self-Rising Flour:

Whisk together:

1 1/2 cups flour

2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon salt

*Cinnamon chips can sometimes be found along with the other baking chips at your grocery store.  I really like to make my own Cinnamon Chips.  See blog article for link to recipe or search “Cinnamon Chips” on epicuricloud.com.
