Nonstick baking spray
3 cups AP flour
1 Tbls. Baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
2 sticks room temp unsalted butter
2 c. sugar
5 large room temp eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/4 c. nonfat buttermilk
For dunking: 1 stick melted butter
1 c. sugar mixed with 1 tsp. cinnamon in a pie plate

Preheat oven to 325.

Spray cake molds (egg shaped or muffin tins) with baking spray.

Sift flour, powder, salt and nutmeg. Set aside.

Whip butter and sugar until light and fluffy. May take up to 10 minutes. Scrape sides and keep whipping!

Add eggs one at a time, Whipping constantly until incorporated. Keep scraping...

Add vanilla, then alternate buttermilk and dry ingredients. Don't overbeat! Fold a few times with a rubber spatula to be sure everything is incorporated.

Fill each cavity of mold a bit less than halfway. Bake 15 minutes. Cake should spring back when you touch it and be golden.

Unmold, and dip while warm into melted butter, then roll in cinnamon sugar.
