Cinnamon Roll Muffins


As you all know by now, we love muffins!  Another thing my son absolutely loves in cinnamon.  I mean just about anything with cinnamon.  Cinnamon rolls, cinnamon toast, cinnamon bagels, cinnamon poptarts, I could go on.  So when I saw The Baker Chick made a Cinnamon Roll Muffin, I hit print immediately!  I knew, this would be a success!  And boy was it ever.  At first bite, my son said this was the best muffin EVER!  I had one too, and they were pretty darn good.  Reminiscent of Cinnabon from the mall food court, which was The Baker Chick's goal when she came up with this brilliant idea!  My Dad absolutely LOVES Cinnabon, so I am thinking I am going to have to make these for him.  I think he will be very impressed.  Oh yeah, they freeze well too!

Cinnamon Roll Muffins
Adapted from The Baker Chick

1 cup Buttermilk (I used ½ buttermilk, ½ cup skim)
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ tsp vanilla
1 egg
3 cups flour

Filling
2 Tbls Butter, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Icing
1 cup powdered sugar
2 -3 Tbls milk
½ tsp vanilla

In a bowl combine brown sugar, baking soda, salt, vanilla and egg.  Add in the buttermilk.  I actually had some buttermilk leftover from when I made these.  But, I usually don’t have it around.  I would not hesitate to just use regular milk next time I make them.  Mix together with a fork.  Add the flour.  Stir until it is well combined.  Be careful not to over mix!


Turn the dough onto a floured surface, and knead for about a minute.  Roll the dough into a 12x24 inch rectangle. 


Spread the butter over the dough, and sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon.


Roll the dough into a log, and stretch it slightly.  Cut into 2 inch pieces.  Put them  into a greased muffin tin.  Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees.  


While they are baking you can put together the icing.  Add the milk slowly to the sugar.  Doesn’t really matter how much you use, just get it to the consistency you want.  Drizzle over the muffins!  


These were so gooey and delicious!  I recommend you make them right now!

How Smart! I never thought to make them in a muffin tin. I love the way they make the house smell heavenly? My kids and hubby love cinnamon rolls so I know this would be a hit with them. : )

I have never made cinnamon rolls (or anything fancy like this), and I was surprised by the amount of sugar and cinnamon you add in the roll. No wonder it tastes heavenly! :-D I wish I can have a piece of these and have it with my coffee. That would be a perfect morning...

Your cinnamon roll muffins look so perfect! I love, love, love cinnamon and can't seem to get enough of it. I'm sure I'd love these.

Cinnabon makes me think of my grandparents - they'd always stop there with me for treats. Man, do I miss those days!
