2 Cups Flour

½ tsp Salt

¼ tsp Cinnamon

1/8 tsp Nutmeg

1 Cup Whole Milk

1 tsp Vanilla

1 Large Egg

4 TBS Butter (1/2 Stick)



Preheat the oven to 400º. Grease and flour a 12-cup muffin pan, or use paper liners.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Melt the butter and let cool slightly.

In a medium bowl, beat the egg. Add the sugar, milk and vanilla.   Pour the cooled butter into the egg mixture and stir.

Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients. Mix for only 10-15 seconds, very gently. It is very important that you don’t over mix the batter, it will cause your muffins to be rubbery.

Let the batter rest for 10 minutes. Divide the batter into the 12 muffin cups.

Bake 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin comes out clean.
