courtesy of Taste of Home Magazine
1 1/2 cups of milk
2/3 cup of oil
1 1/2 cups of sugar plus 1 1/2 cups for topping
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon plus 2 teaspoons for topping
1 cup melted butter
Grease inside and tops of muffin tins. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together oil, eggs, 1 1/2 cups sugar and milk. Set aside.
Take a large bowl and sift together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the oil mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until combined, being careful not to over beat. Spoon batter into greased muffin cups, filling 2/3 full. Bake for 18-25 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
While muffins are baking, melt butter in a microwave safe bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the topping amounts of cinnamon and sugar noted above.
Once muffins are done, let cool for a few minutes. Remove each muffin and roll in butter, then in sugar mixture. Set on wire rack to cool.
