how to: french toast muffins

I was lying in bed this morning, hungry, and on Pinterest there was a post for French Toast muffins that really taste like French Toast. Ehhh.. that might be pushing it. It's maybe more snickerdoodly? Anyway, they are still tasty. Here is the original recipe: Velvet Lava Cafe

1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 egg (preferably room temperature)
1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Yields 10 muffins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium-large bowl stir together all the dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined. Do not overmix! they will not be as soft! Add the batter to muffin tins - I used a large cookie scoop and that worked out great. You want to have your muffin cups only 2/3-3/4 full. 
Bake for 20-25 minutes until they get golden on the edges.

For the topping, mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Put melted butter in another small bowl. Once the muffins are done, but still warm, dip them in the butter then the cinnamon sugar and Enjoy :)

They are pretty sweet so I ate them with fresh cut up strawberries and bananas and that evened it out well.
