Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla

For the Streusel:

  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter at room temperature

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • For the Muffins:
  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Whisk to break any clumps.
  • In another bowl, combine the oil, eggs, sugar, buttermilk and vanilla. Mix well.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix just until combined.
  • For the Streusel:
  • In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, and butter, cutting it with a fork until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Spray 2 muffin pans with cooking spray.
  • Fill 14-16 muffin cups half full.
  • Sprinkle half of the cinnamon streusel on over the muffin batter.
  • Use the remaining batter to fill the muffin cups the rest of the way.
  • Sprinkle the remaining streusel on top of the muffins.
  • Bake at 425 for 5 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees (without opening the oven) and bake for an additional 11-12 minutes, or until the center of the muffin bounces back when you touch it.
  • Allow the muffins to cool for 5 minutes, then remove them from the pan and allow them to cool on a wire rack.
  • Store in an airtight container.
