Cinnamon Sugar Mixture:

  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (or pecans), finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, melted

Muffin Batter:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Vanilla Glaze:

  • 3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


Step 1

Line a 12-cup muffin tray with paper liners. Set it aside. Next, combine 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp dark brown sugar, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts in a large bowl. Mix well, then stir in 1/4 cup melted cold butter. Set it aside. Next, prepare the muffin batter. Combine 2 cups all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 1 tbsp baking powder, and 1/2 tsp salt in another bowl. Whisk everything together, then make a well at the center. Add 1/4 cup vegetable oil, 1 large egg, 1 cup whole milk, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Combine everything well.

Step 2

Now, add a generous tablespoon of the batter mixture into each cup of your muffin tray. After this, sprinkle a tablespoon of the cinnamon mixture, then divide the remaining batter between the paper liners. Top each with the remaining cinnamon mixture. Once done, let the tray sit for 20 minutes while preheating the oven to 400 degrees F. After 20 minutes, put the tray in the oven and bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes. In the meantime, make the vanilla glaze.
