Breakfast Cinnamon mini muffins

Buttery cinnamon sugar surrounded by a delicate cake similar to a coffee cake....melts in your mouth..these don't last long make a double batch! They taste great the next day, although the best warm out of the oven on a crisp fall day. Mom used to make these every weekend for us, a quick homemade quick bread style muffin. Sometimes she wouldn't use the paper liners and cook them in the tin without it, then roll the whole muffin in butter and cinnamon sugar, these were very tender delicious breakfast cakes.


1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teas baking powder
1/4 teas nutmeg
1/2 cup milk

Topping
1/2 cup sugar
1 teas cinnamon mix in a bowl

Separate bowl:
1/2 cup melted butter

Heat oven to 350. Grease mini muffin tins. Combine all ingredients except topping. Bake for 25 minutes.

Remove from oven, dip hot muffins in butter then in sugar-cinnamon mixture, eat while warm
