but we are making Spanish Cinnamon Muffins. Sir Son being interested in German has nothing to do with Spanish and Spanish has nothing to do with this muffin recipe. So, if you figure out a connection, just let me know.
The girls wanted muffins. They wanted sugary muffins. They wanted sugary, cinnamon muffins. It took a while to find a recipe without apples, but I found one. It is Spanish Cinnamon Muffins.
My sister gifted to me three small, very, very small, bottles of cinnamon from different places. Can you see the size? It says .7, .8, and 1 ounce. .7, .8, and 1 Ounces! My sister must not know the amount of cinnamon that is consumed in this household.
My favorite is the Vietnamese Cassia. Which is the bottle with the smallest amount of cinnamon in it and probably cost the most. Oh! it smells just like heaven will. I just know it. Here take a sniff and smell for yourself.
My sister doesn’t know it yet, but she has to give me a lifetime supply of this stuff. Yes, it is that good.
The Vietnamese Cassia is what I used for the Spanish Cinnamon Muffins (recipe below).
Yes, the muffins are flat. Most of the muffins I make are flat. It is a curse from The Muffin Man. I don’t know what I did to make him so mad. I have never been able to make light, fluffy muffins, but I don’t care. I have been making muffins this way for many years, so my girls don’t know the difference. If you tell my girls this isn’t the proper way to make a muffin, I’ll send The Muffin Man after you.
When I make muffins, each of us has one with dinner and save the rest for lunch the next day. I and the girls cannot stand smashed muffins, so I bought these screw on top, plastic containers from Rubber-maid. They work great in lunch boxes. Yes, two of my muffins can fit in one container, but if you make them right, only one will fit nicely in there.
