Snickerdoodle Muffins

We decided to go on a diet, well, not so much a diet, but a healthy food kick a few months back. We have been doing very well. On occasion, we may or may not have a bad day. On these "bad days," we may, or may not, bake a bunch of not healthy things. Haha. This weeks bad day item, was Snickerdoodle Muffins. Craig has been on a snickerdoodle kick these last two weeks! He already made two batches of Snickerdoodle cookies last week. So, it's official, we are bad dieters! It's also official that my hubby is addicted to StumbleUpon, and I could not be more proud! Here is the Muffin recipe that he found while stumbling late the other night.

Snickerdoodle Muffins

  • 2 cups flour

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 2 tsp. cream of tartar

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • 1 stick butter, softened

  • 3/4 cup sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 Tbs. sugar + 1 tsp. cinnamon for topping

  • We've never made muffins before, so we were surprised at how well these came out. They weren't very hard to make either.
    In a bowl, stir together the flour, salt, cream of tartar and baking soda.
     In a mixer bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Then, you can add the eggs.
      Add the milk and vanilla and mix until well combined.
     We were kind of unsure about this part, because our mixture looked like cottage cheese. It was chunky, and had a lot of liquid in it. Don't worry, it is okay.
    Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, just until moistened. The first batch we made was plain.  However, the second batch had Cinnamon and Sugar mixed in with the batter. It gave it a little more kick on the inside.
     Fill muffin cups 2/3 of the way full of batter.
      Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.  We made it so the top was full.
    Almost done...
     These are the finished sprinkled muffins before going in the oven.
     Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
     I ate these for breakfast every day for like a week.
     Did mention, I really..really.. like butter....
