How does a perfect morning start? Definitely not from the alarm. And with the birds singing outside the window, the aroma of coffee coming from the kitchen and a delicious breakfast. But on my first day off I don’t feel like starting at the stove. Therefore, we propose to make these simple, but very juicy cinnamon rolls. Do not worry: it takes only a minute of time and a microwave.

Everyone, especially the girls, knows: it is better not to abuse the test. But treat yourself to delicious on the weekend - it's not a matter of jurisdiction. Or, if the body has an acute shortage of sweets, and all the stores are already closed. In this case, this surprisingly simple recipe for delicious cinnamon muffins will come to the rescue. Moreover, the entire cooking process will require only a few minutes and a minimum of ingredients, which are likely to be found in your kitchen anyway.

To cook cinnamon muffins in the microwave, you will need (per one serving):
1. 9 tablespoons of flour,
2. 3/4 teaspoons of baking powder,
3. A pinch of salt,
4. 3-4.5 tablespoons of water,
5. 3/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon,
6. 1.5 teaspoon of sugar,
7. A little oil (olive, sunflower, coconut - any),

For topping:
1. 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar,
2. A little milk (about a teaspoon)

1. Take a mug that can be heated in the microwave. Thoroughly and completely (bottom, walls), lubricate it from the inside with oil. This is necessary so that the dough is not burnt and the cake is easy to get.
2. First make the topping sauce. To do this, dilute powdered sugar with milk (or even a teaspoon of water) and mix thoroughly.
3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Add water (4-4.5 tablespoons). Do not stop mixing until you get the dough. If it comes out too dry and crumbly, add some more water. It turned out too wet and sticky - you need more flour.
4. Pour a little flour onto a board or table and roll the dough on it. You need a solid strip about 10-12 cm wide (per eye).
5. Sprinkle a strip of dough with sugar and cinnamon. Then wrap the edges inward so that the "filling" does not spill out. You got a long strip again, just now.
6. Roll the strip into roll (yes, like a carpet) and place in a prepared mug.
7. Microwave to maximum. Cooking time - from 45 seconds to 1 minute 10 seconds. Depends on the power of the device. Better start with 45 seconds and check the result with a toothpick. If the dough is still raw, increase the time.
8. When the dough is ready, simply flip the mug directly onto the plate. A cupcake pour topping. Eat warm, because cooling, “quick cupcakes” become hard.

On 12 large muffins

  • 1 tsp cinnamon (I put more)
  • 200 g sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • a mixture of sugar with cinnamon for sprinkling - optional

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. In one bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. In another liquid: with a whisk, mix eggs, milk and vegetable oil.
  3. Add the liquid part of the dough to the dry one and with a spatula to mix quickly only until the moment when all the flour becomes wet, you do not need to knead further, otherwise the muffins will not rise.
  4. Put the finished dough in molds for 2/3 and put in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.

The main ingredients: cinnamon

Recipe Tips:

- very often a little nutmeg is mixed with cinnamon and sugar,

- sometimes a bag of vanilla sugar (15 grams) or liquid vanilla extract (1 teaspoon) is added to the dough,

- an ideal substitute for butter - baking margarine with maximum fat content and minimum water,

- very often baker cups are put into mold cells, they are already saturated with oil, so you do not need to grease and sprinkle them with flour.
