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)
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.
