Well, almost December.
Do you like the smell of something warm and cinnamony on a chilly morning?
(Cinnamony is a real word.)
Comfort food and a cup of coffee…
perfect way to start a cold day.
At our house, we make more things from scratch than we used to, since some of my people have to be gluten-free, and, to be honest, baking from scratch isn’t really any harder than using a box mix. Especially if you just stick to the basics…like I do!
I’m sharing an easy recipe with you today for some warm and cozy goodness.
Yes, that is melted brown sugar in there. But this is not a dessert, I promise.
It’s just your coffee’s new best friend.
*I use Bob’s Red Mill One-to-One baking flour for this. You can find it HERE.
**Make your own buttermilk by stirring 2 Tablespoons vinegar into a cup of milk.
Tip: I like to have two mixing bowls for this recipe, a large one for dry ingredients and a medium one for wet ingredients.
(Batter will be thick.)
UPDATE: This recipe is slightly edited from the original. I added a little more butter, which makes the batter easier to work with.
Makes a perfect dozen! This is important, because you need to know ahead of time how many each person will get. In my family, it works out just right, because each person can have two. I have, at times, made muffins or cupcakes a little bigger or a little smaller by adding more or less to each scoop, to make the number come out right. (Shh, mama’s secret!)
Now, peel those muffin papers off (such a nice little invention that makes life easier,) slap some butter on there, and enjoy some cinnamony goodness.
But remember, you only get two! 😉
