This recipe was passed down to me from my good friend’s mom. I have the best memories of making these growing up in their kitchen and eating them immediately after rolling them in sugar. I am sure we would eat more than we would put on the plate.
Miss Amy Muffins are a mildly sweet muffin that is rolled in melted butter and then in sugar. They almost taste like a mini churro and are amazing. This recipe makes about 2 dozen mini muffins, and I bet they won’t last more than 1 day in your house!
Miss Amy Muffins
1/3 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick melted butter, in a separate bowl
Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar then beat in the egg. Sift the dry ingredients and add alternately with milk to the butter mixture. Finally, add the vanilla.
Grease a 24 cup mini muffin tin and evenly fill with the batter. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
While the muffins bake, mix 1/2 cup sugar with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. In a saucepan, melt 1 stick of butter.
Remove the muffins from the oven and remove from the tin once they are cool enough to handle, but still warm. Roll each muffin in the melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar.
These are delicious warm or cold, but are heavenly if you eat them right out of the oven.
