This recipe caught my eye on the King Arthur Flour site. It isn't a new idea and has been "revamped" by many. The traditional way to top these is by dipping them in melted butter then in a cinnamon/sugar mix.
The original recipe can be found here at the King Arthur site. For a bit of a change and added moisture, try adding 1/4 cup of full-fat sour cream to the wet ingredients.
I thought a glaze would work better than the recommended butter and cinnamon sugar topping, at least where my kids are concerned. Besides, I prefer the floor as clean as I can keep it. A glaze just makes sense!For the glaze, simply combine the following ingredients in a medium sized bowl:
- 1 cup of icing sugar sifted together with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons cream (you may need 3 if you feel it is too thick)
- 3 tablespoons melted unsalted butter.
Blend together with a fork. Spread onto muffin tops while still warm. I just put a dollop in the center of each muffin and let it ooze down the sides. The glaze will dry and form a smooth topping as it cools.
