Cinnamon Bun Muffins



Everyone loves cinnamon buns but hardly anyone wants to wake up hours ahead of breakfast to prepare them so what better alternative can you get then a muffin? These warm, soft beauties are filled with all the delicious taste that cinnamon buns have. I love muffins they are an amazing invention. You can make them the night before and wake up to a effortless homemade breakfast.

Dough:
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoons yeast
1/2-3/4 cup warm milk
3 tablespoons sunflower oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs

Topping:
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon, ground
1 teaspoon cardamom, ground

Icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tbsp milk or cream

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F. In a small bowl add yeast and warm milk, allow to sit until froths, about 5 minutes. In a large bowl add flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, oil, vanilla, eggs and milk mixture, mix well. Sit aside.

2. In a medium sized bowl add butter, brown sugar cinnamon and cardamom, mix well. Divide mixture in half. Line a muffin pan with paper holders. Sprinkle 1/2-1 teaspoon at the bottom of each paper. Fill a heaping tablespoon full of batter into each cup then sprinkle 1/2-1 teaspoon full of filling into top. Press the filling into the batter with your finger. Bake 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 30 minutes.

3. In a medium sized bowl add powdered sugar and cream, mix well. Icing should be thick. With a Wilton cake tip #4 make a crisscross pattern on top.

Yields: 1 dozen
