Snickerdoodle Muffins (Surprise Recipe Swap)

Today, I'm so excited to be sharing the first recipe I've tried in an official recipe swap! I've never done one before - though I have NO idea why because it was super fun - and this month, I finally took the plunge and joined one. The premise is simple; you're assigned another participants blog to choose a recipe from, make, and post. Which means one of my recipes will be featured today, too, on someone's blog and I can't wait to find out who and what they thought about it!

I was assigned Susie over at Earning My Cape and I decided to try her Snickerdoodle Mini Muffins because really, who doesn't love all things snickerdoodle? I evidently don't own a mini muffin pan so I just used a regular muffin pan and it still worked great!

These muffins are just sweet enough but not so sweet your teeth hurt. They are buttery, soft, and exta delicious when warm! I had these in the oven in 5 minutes flat which makes it an even bigger hit :)

If you're interested in joining a recipe swap, go here and check out the details!

Susie, thank you for the delicious recipe!

Snickerdoodle Muffins
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon
2 TB white sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line or butter muffin tin.

In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 cup sugar. In a small bowl, combine the egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla.

Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and mix quickly and lightly until combined. Do not beat. The batter will be slightly lumpy.

Spoon the batter into the muffin tin, filling to the top. Combine the cinnamon and 2 tablespoons sugar and sprinkle over the tops of the batter.

Place in oven and turn the heat down to 400 degrees.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. My regular size muffins took around 14 minutes. Remove and enjoy!
