The Pioneer Woman = Delicious!

Tuesday, October 9, 2012

My next recipe is from one of my favorite online food blogs. Actually, she does lots of awesomeness online - homeschool, cooking, photography, etc. She's kind of amazing! I found this recipe and was immediately smitten. I just made these little guys last night and I dreamed about them all night. Once again, I have modified the recipe, but feel free to try either way. Click here for The Pioneer Woman's Recipe.

Here is my version:

  • 3 cups Flour
  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp vanilla (powder if you got it)
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ⅔ cups Butter
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk - whole or half and half is best
  • 1-½ cup Sugar
  • 1/2 C Cinnamon
  • 1 ½  sticks Butter
Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 18 muffin cups.

In a large bowl stir together flour, baking powder, salt, vanilla (powder) and nutmeg. Set aside.
In a different bowl, cream together 1 cup sugar and butter (vanilla extract if you use that). Then add eggs and mix again. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition. I add flour, milk, flour, milk, flour. 
Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Allow to slightly cool then dip.

How to Dip:
In a bowl, melt 1 ½ sticks butter. In a separate bowl combine remaining sugar and cinnamon. Dip baked muffins in butter, coating thoroughly, then coat with cinnamon-sugar mixture. 

These are soooooo good! I hope that you enjoy them!
