Snickerdoodle Muffins

Due to some commitments elsewhere on my part this weekend, I couldn't participate in Baker Street's Muffin Monday.  But the girls still need their lunchbox goodies, and well, I still need something to share!

I give you, Snickerdoodle Muffins:
They're really nothing but a simple sweet muffin with a cinnamon sugar topping.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line one 12-cup muffin pan with paper wrappers or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

2 c. Fancy Baking Blend, other AP GF flour blend, or:
1/3 c. Millet Flour
3/4 c. White Rice Flour
1/4 c. Sweet Rice Flour
2/3 c. Tapioca starch

1/3 c. sugar
1 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp salt
3 tsp baking powder
1 egg
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 c. + 2 Tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla

Cinnamon Sugar Sprinkle
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Sift together flour, sugar, xanthan gum, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together egg, butter, milk, and vanilla.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the liquids.  Whisk together until combined.
 Fill muffin cups 2/3 full or use a 2 oz disher to portion batter.  

Combine sugar and cinnamon for sprinkle, and top each muffin with about a tsp. of cinnamon sugar.

Bake for 20 minutes or until set and golden.
Simple, but well received.  And, having no icing or other frou-frou, they travel VERY well.
They're also pretty muffins, being very white in the center, and delightfully crinkled on top.

I love snickerdoodles, so a snickerdoodle muffin sounds too good to be true! So many recipes call for sweet rice flour, but I can never find it locally - we're in Montreal. Do you know of a good sub flour?

I came across your site on the Circle of Mom's top 25 Food Allergy Mom Blogs. It's given me the idea to start a blog hop for allergies, asthma and eczema - parents or adults dealing with the condition. Please check out the page here and add a comment if you'd like to join. Thanks!

Thanks for stopping by!

If you can't get sweet rice flour (also known as glutinous rice flour), you can just use a little more white rice flour. It will affect the texture a bit, but not much.

I find mine at the local Asian grocery - it's Thai, in focus, and the brand of flour I prefer is Thai as well. I use their white rice, glutinous rice, and tapioca flours.
