Sourdough cinnamon muffins are easy and delicious.

Sourdough Cinnamon Muffins

These sourdough cinnamon muffins are a great way to use up a cup of your discarded starter.  They are wonderful with coffee in the morning or as a snack anytime with milk.  Children as well as adults will love these cinnamon muffins.  They would make a great gift for any holiday or for a sick friend.  Add these to a breakfast buffet and there will not be any left.  You could do these in a 12 cup muffin tin as well as the large six cup I used.  Either way they won’t last long but will keep for several days in an airtight container in a cool spot.  Reheat in the oven or microwave and slather with butter for a real morning or anytime treat.  Be sure to check out our recipe for sourdough starter and bread.

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup sourdough starter

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Add melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla extract, milk and egg. Mix well with a spoon. Pour in sourdough starter and mix with spoon.  Spray a large six cup muffin tin or a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.  Fill cups 1/2 full.  Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 17 to 20 minutes. Makes 6 large muffins or 12 regular muffins.  Enjoy!

Note:  I add a pinch of cinnamon and sugar to tops of muffins before I cook them but this is optional.
