Mix up a quick batch of Bisquick cinnamon muffins, dipped in butter and cinnamon sugar. Simple and easy, melt-in-your-mouth, breakfast and brunch recipe!

I really thought there was nothing quite as yummy as my favorite Bisquick cinnamon biscuits. But I'll tell ya, these Bisquick cinnamon sugar muffins give my biscuits a run for their money.

And yes, the batter's made with Bisquick biscuit mix, along with 5 other ingredients. Meaning they're super easy to mix up.

Now my original intention was to add a crumb topping to these Bisquick muffins. But I decided for this recipe, I really wanted to emphasize the cinnamon with a buttery cinnamon sugar topping.

Once the muffins have baked, they're dipped in melted butter, and then in cinnamon sugar. This gives them a slightly crispy, melt-in-your-mouth topping that is oh so scrumptious.

Even my self-professed “bread snob” of an oldest child loves these Bisquick sweet muffins. And let me tell you, that right there means something.

Of course, we love Bisquick cinnamon rolls too. Apparently, we have a thing for cinnamon.

HOW TO MAKE BISQUICK CINNAMON MUFFINS

Mixing up the muffin batter is really easy and requires only a few steps.

Before you start, you'll need to either spray your muffin tins with cooking spray or line them with cupcake liners.

  1. In a mixing bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Add the eggs to the cinnamon sugar mixture, and mix well.
  3. Next add in the milk and vanilla extract, continuing to mix well.
  4. Finally, add in the Bisquick mix, and mix everything together until blended.
  5. Then just fill each of the regular size muffin cups 1/2 to 2/3 of the way full with muffin batter.
  6. Bake according to the instructions in the recipe card below.

When your muffins are done, they'll be a golden brown color, and a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center will come out clean.

Allow them to cool in the pan for about 5 minutes; then take a knife, run it around the edge of each muffin, and pop them out for dipping.

HOW TO DIP BISQUICK MUFFINS IN CINNAMON SUGAR

First of all, you'll need to melt the butter in one bowl. And then in a separate small bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar.

Then you're ready for dipping…

  1. Dip the top of each warm muffin in the melted butter first.
  2. Then dip every muffin in the cinnamon sugar mixture, rolling the tops around to make sure they're covered with the slightly crispy cinnamon sugar topping.

Then place the muffins on a wire rack to finish cooling. Or better yet, serve them while still warm.

CAN I MAKE THEM GLUTEN-FREE?

Yes, you can. In fact, Bisquick has a Gluten-Free Bisquick Mix. How awesome is that?

I do suggest having a little xanthan gum available to add to your biscuit batter when mixing. I usually add about a teaspoon for every 2 cups of flour, so with this recipe, I'd likely add a somewhat heaping teaspoon.

WHAT CAN I ADD TO THESE EASY CINNAMON MUFFINS?

You can add just about anything you want. But keep in mind, certain things will change the texture of your muffins.

That said, there are so many awesome add-ins for muffins…

HOW TO STORE CINNAMON MUFFINS

It's important to store muffins in a muffin containerairtight container, or sealed plastic bag.

And you'll probably want to eat them within the first 2 or 3 days, so they're still nice and soft.

CAN I FREEZE BISQUICK SWEET MUFFINS?

Yes, you can. But be sure to allow at least an hour to thaw before serving.

To re-heat the muffins, just place them in the microwave for 10-15 seconds each.

Be sure when freezing them, though, that you again store them in an airtight container or freezer bag.
