Cinnamon Puff Muffins
     3 cups all-purpose flour
     1 1/4 cup sugar, divided
     2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
     1 1/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg
     3/4 teaspoon salt
     2 large eggs, lightly beaten
     1 1/4 cups milk
     1/3 cup butter plus 1/4 cup butter, melted and divided
     1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in center of dry ingredients.

Combine eggs, milk, and 1/3 cup melted butter in a small bowl. Pour mixture into well of dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. (Batter may be lumpy.) Spoon into lightly greased muffin cups, filling three-fourths full.

Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon in a small, shallow bowl. Let muffins cool just enough to handle into remaining 1/4 cup melted butter and then into sugar mixture until coated. Serve warm.

Makes: 12 muffins
