In just over 30 minutes, you can have the great taste of cinnamon rolls in a muffin. Easy to make with lots of sugar, cinnamon, nuts, streusel, and a glazed top. You can indulge your inner child with these delicious jumbo muffins.
In a mixing bowl mix until combined 1 1/2 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans), 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 tsp salt.
In a second bowl or 2 cup measuring cup combine 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup vegetable oil, and 1 egg. Whip until the egg is blended.
In a third bowl, combine 4 tablespoons butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup chopped nuts, and a pinch of salt.
Mix wet into dry and just mix enough to combine. Prep a muffin pan. You can make 6 jumbo muffins or 12 regular size muffins. Spray well with PAM or add cupcake papers.
Fill the muffin tin about 1/2 to 2/3 full. That will be a heaping 1/4 cup into the six cups. Top with the brown sugar mixture.
Bake until the top is brown and edges browning more. This was 18 minutes for me for jumbo muffins. It will be a few minutes less if you make standard size muffins, so pay attention.
Check it the muffin is done. Use the touch test, toothpick test, or an internal temperature of 200°.
Remove the muffins from the pan as soon as removed from the oven.
Mix 2/3 cup of powder sugar with 1-2 teaspoons of milk and a few drops of vanilla. Allow the muffins to cool for a few minutes then top with the frosting.
Smoke warning! This may smoke up your kitchen some if it overflows. Place a cookie sheet on the rack under the muffin tin in-case of overflow.
Never use baking powder with aluminum.
Please do not cook by time on this recipe. There are three ways to check if your muffins are done baking. 1) First, you can press lightly on the top of the muffin, and if it pops back quickly and leaves no indentation, it is done. 2) The second and my favorite is the toothpick test. Just insert a toothpick in the top to about the center of the muffin. It is done when the toothpick comes out clean. Yep, it is "old school." 3) Third, an internal temperature of 200°.
Good at room temperature for 3-4 days an
