Serves 15 | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 25 minutes


1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease 15 medium muffin cups.

Mix thoroughly shortening, sugar, and egg.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in a small bowl.

Add the flour mixture to the shortening mixture alternately with milk.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.

Bake 20 - 25 minutes.

Mix sugar and cinnamon. Immediately after baking, roll hot muffins in melted butter, then in cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Note: Can be made in mini-muffin tin - decrease baking time a bit. Also, you can 'butter' the hot muffins using a pastry brush instead of rolling them in the butter.
