2 cups flour
2/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 large egg
1 cup, plus 2 Tbsp milk
6 Tbsp butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp butter, melted and slightly cooled
*Heat the oven to 375. Butter the bottoms of 12 standard-sized muffin cups and set pan aside.
*Combine in large mixing bowl: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.
*In a medium bowl, whisk the egg until it's frothy. Blend in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid mixture.
*Using a wooden spoon, mix the batter just until it's evenly blended, then spoon it into the muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
*Bake the muffins on the center rack for 15 minutes, then rotate the pan and bake for an additiona. 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack until the muffins are cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes, then remove them from the cups.
*Before the muffins lose their warmth, prepare the topping. Mix the sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl, melt the butter and transfer it to a separate bowl. Set both bowls next to the muffins.
*Working one muffin at a time, quickly dip the tops in the melted butter and then the cinnamon sugar, rolling each muffin in all directions to cover the entire top.
