  • 2 cups + 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter. melted
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp milk

  • Directions:

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a muffin tin, set aside. In a large mixing bowl whisk together flour, 3 Tbsp granulated sugar, baking powder and salt. Pour buttermilk, 1/3 cup milk and melted butter into flour mixture. Stir with a fork or clean hands just until mixture comes together, do not over mix. 
  • 2. Pour 1/2 cup granulated sugar into a medium container that has a lid to cover. Scoop dough out 1 even teaspoon at a time and drop into container in an even layer, working in batches (I fit 18 dough balls in at a time). Then cover container with a lid and shake to coat. Drop 6 sugar coated dough balls into each muffin cup. Repeat this process until all muffin cups are filled.
  • 3. Whisk together 6 Tbsp melted butter, brown sugar and cinnamon until well combine. Pour about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar mixture evenly over each muffin. Place muffin tin on a cookie sheet and Bake 18-19 minutes until golden. Allow to cool 5 minutes in muffin tin before removing muffins. 
  • 4. In a mixing bowl whisk together powdered sugar and 1 Tbsp milk until well blended. Using a ziploc bag, snip a small tip off the end of the bag and drizzle glaze over each muffin.
