A few weeks ago I bought cute mini muffin tins decorated with snowmen and was dying to use them. So I found a recipe in my Martha Stewart Living 2003 Annual Recipes book for Mini Cinnamon and Sugar Muffins. They were extremely simple to make and took maybe a total of fifteen to twenty minutes to make. I was also able to save a lot of the leftover cinnamon and sugar mixture for the snickerdoodles I'm going to make.
At first I was disappointed by the muffins because they looked pretty plain but I was very pleased once I tried one. They're suprisingly moist and flavorful. I didn't have buttermilk which the recipe called for so I just substituted the 1/2 cup of buttermilk with 1/2 cup of lactaid milk (which I use when making baked goods for myself) and 3/4 T. lemon juice. Then I put it in the microwave for a few seconds because I was told that it works better when slightly warmed. Apparently this worked perfectly because the "buttermilk" really made the recipe work.
I have a question for all of you food bloggers out there. I would love to share this recipe with you but I'm not sure about copyright laws. Am I allowed to post a recipe from a book (especially since I pretty much followed the recipe exactly)? If so, is there anything special I should do when posting the recipe?
