Caramel Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

These caramel cinnamon sugar muffins have caramel coffee creamer in the batter, plus the tops are dipped in cinnamon sugar! I would say that 80% of the time I share recipes for cake, cupcakes, and things that are round (i.e. pies, tarts, things in glasses, haha.) But.. none of those things I would consider as my absolute favorite!

Of course I like ice cream and turtle cheesecake but the one thing I could eat everyday are MUFFINS!

These caramel cinnamon sugar muffins have caramel coffee creamer in the batter, plus the tops are dipped in cinnamon sugar! When I make something for myself that isn’t going to go on the blog, it’s almost always muffins. Homemade or boxed, I’m not too picky, I love them all. So I would consider this recipe a double win, a win for the blog and a win for me!

When I started my partnership with International Delight back in May, I wasn’t completely sure how I was going to incorporate coffee creamer into a recipe to share each month, but it’s actually been a lot easier and more fun than I thought! It’s been neat to see that you can use a product that’s intended for one use for a completely different use!

These caramel cinnamon sugar muffins have caramel coffee creamer in the batter, plus the tops are dipped in cinnamon sugar! These caramel cinnamon sugar muffins might not look as festive or incredible next to a layered cake (especially this naked apple spice cake with caramel drizzle!) but they are moist, flavorful and delicious.

All a muffin should be :)

These caramel cinnamon sugar muffins have caramel coffee creamer in the batter, plus the tops are dipped in cinnamon sugar! These muffins are very easy to make. You’ll need 2 bowls, one for the dry ingredients and one for everything else. You’ll also need a hand mixer for beating the butter and sugar.

These could definitely pass as cupcakes, I mean.. what muffin couldn’t be a cupcake if you’re adding frosting?! If you want to turn these into cupcakes, a cinnamon buttercream would make a great frosting!

    • Hi Dena! The International Delight creamer gives these muffins a nice caramel flavor – I am assuming you could use milk, but I haven’t tried it myself.
