Cinnamon Bun Muffin Recipe

I really love Cinnamon Roll Muffins, I have a serious weakness for them. But the real ones involve a yeast dough, and basically a cinnamon bun recipe.    This version is a hybrid, more muffin then cinnamon bun but still spicy and delicious.   Plus, oh so pretty.

Cinnamon Roll Muffins

(12 muffins)

1 cup milk
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
3 1/2 cups flour
4 tablespoons soft butter
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375F. Combine milk and vinegar and set aside.  In a bowl stir together brown sugar, salt and baking soda. Mix in egg, vanilla and then milk mixture.  Stir in flour to form a dough. Transfer to a floured surface and knead for a minute until silky.

Combine butter, sugar and cinnamon  until smooth. Roll or press dough out into  a 12 x24" rectangle.  Spread with butter mixture leaving about a centimeter border on every side. Roll up starting from the longer side to make a ~ 24" log.   Cut into 12 1-2" sections, and put into a greased or lined muffin tin. Bake for 20 minutes.
