Marvelous Mitsie's French Toast Muffins

Looking for a recipe to add to your next Sunday Brunch? Don’t miss this amazing recipe for French Toast Breakfast Muffins shared by Marvelous Mitsie from the Yarmouth Seaside Red Hatters Chapter (Nova Scotia, Canada).

 French Toast Breakfast Muffins                                                                                         
1/3 cup butter, melted 
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg (preferably room temperature) 
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg 
1/2 cup milk
Topping (option: cut topping in half *)
1/2 cup sugar 
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a med-large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients. 
Add wet ingredients, stir just until combined, but still a bit lumpy. 
Do NOT overmix; overmixing will ruin texture of finished muffins. 
Scoop batter into muffin tins that have sprayed with cooking spray (I used margarine). 
With large spoon = 10 med/large muffins
Bake 20-25 mins, or until they start to turn a bit golden at the edges.
Mini muffins take about 20 minutes.
For the topping, mix sugar & cinnamon in small bowl. 
Place melted butter in another small bowl. 
Dip warm muffins in melted butter (you can dip just the top, but it's even tastier to dip the whole muffin!), then dip/roll the muffin in cinnamon sugar. 
*May have left-over topping; the extra topping can be used for dipping, while eating the muffins. (and they're delicious doing this!!)
