I Love Cinnamon!

I went to bed dreaming, about cinnamon bread .... the big fat yummy loaf of cinnamon bread that took my breath away the minute I set my eyes on it at the Farmers' Market. It will be another week before I can sink my teeth into that yummy cinnamon loaf again.

But I can't wait anymore!
Since my fingers are itching to bake something ... ok, Cinnamon Muffins!

I was very happy to find the recipe from BakingBites.

As I did not have all ingredients, I changed the recipe a little.

The aroma of cinnamon filled the entire apartment.

The muffins were moist, and the topping gave it a sweetness mixed with a tinge of cinnamon.


I'm in love ... with cinnamon.
