There's nothing like the smell of cinnamon first thing in the morning

It's been a while since I've baked anything, and boy am I happy to be back in business! These tasty little Cinnamon Puff Muffins are absolutely delightful, 
and will certainly brighten up any morning. 

It's worth baking them just for the smell... your home will be filled with the intoxicating aroma of warm cinnamon, and everyone around you will be in the kitchen in no time!
Plus this recipe is ridiculously quick & easy.... like 15 minutes easy. 
Read on for the details : )
