For the muffins:

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a muffin tin with paper liners, enough for 8 muffins.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugars to a large bowl and whisk together to combine.
  • Measure the milk and vegetable oil into a large measuring cup, adding the egg and whisking until all the wet ingredients are combined.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix just until no streaks of flour remain.
  • Combine the sugar and cinnamon for the cinnamon sugar topping.
  • Add one tablespoon of muffin batter to each of the 8 muffin cups. Top with a sprinkle of the cinnamon sugar.
  • Add another tablespoon of batter and some more cinnamon sugar. Repeat until the muffin cups are about 3/4 full and top the muffins with the remaining cinnamon sugar.
  • Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the tops of the muffins are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into one of the muffins comes out clean.
  • Let the muffins cool completely in their tins before enjoying.



These muffins will keep in an airtight container for several days at room temperature.
