Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

It was another one of those weekends where the brain just goes on a lull (lull-er than the usual daily default setting) and whatever life is left of it is somehow, devoted to the kitchen (for some reason). Slavery in a different form - under the power of whisks, baking powder and silicon mats, spices and spice grinders and spatulas... and one of the powerful aromas that could easily turn the knees to jello-o is cinnamon. Woody, intense and sexy - it doesn't need a complex recipe (especially for the brain dead).

Dead simple :
2 cups self raising flour
1 cup water
1 egg
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2/3 cup caster sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon.

Preheat oven to 200C. Mix cinnamon with sugar and set aside 1/3 of the mixture.

Sift flour and make a well in the center. In a separate jug, mix egg, water and golden syrup. Pour into flour and mix until well incorporated. Fill muffin tins halfway and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar (from the 2/3 mixture), then top with the rest of the flour mixture until muffin tin is 3/4 full. Sprinkle the rest of the sugar on top. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Serve with coffee or tea!

Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
