My friend Mary recommended these Cinnamon Bun Muffins from Mary Ellen's Cooking Creation (no relation to my friend Mary) to me.
1 cup of buttermilk
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
3-3.5 cups of flour (I used whole wheat)
3 tblsp of butter
1 cup of brown sugar
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon (I probably put like 3 tblsp in there)
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tblsp milk
Splash of vanilla
*I actually really really disliked the icing; it was way too sweet. Going forward, I will likely make a cream cheese frosting
Put the brown sugar, baking soda, salt, vanilla, and egg into a mixing bowl. Add the buttermilk, then the flour, stir until thoroughly combined into a dough.
Roll the dough into a big rectangle and spread with the butter. Sprinkle the brown sugar and cinnamon.
|I screwed it up and mixed the butter, cinnamon, and sugar together. Worked out ok in the end I think.|
