Sweet Sunday – Glazed Coffee and Cinnamon Muffins

Muffins are one of my favourite baked goods. I mean, they’re small cakes. Besides, they are so versatile, you can tweak the recipe to your own liking. Make them with sunflower oil or with butter. Make them fruity or add some spice. Seriously, what’s not to love?coffee muffinsI love to eat them alongside a cup of tea. Or even better, with coffee. You know what tops that? Actually making the muffins themselves with coffee. These Coffee and Cinnamon Muffins smell and taste like fall. Also, they’re so perfect for a quick breakfast.coffee muffinsTo bake these incredibly moist spiced muffins, I used ristretto but you can basically add in any type of coffee flavour that you like! For the ultimate finish, the glaze has actually been infused as well. It’s amazing.
