Step: 5

Use an ice cream scooper to scoop batter into the prepared muffin tin. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.

Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean but without overbaking, about 18 minutes.

Step: 7

Let muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Freeze if desired.

A bread first rising can be done in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it yesterday , then clear it off the next day.
