Stuffed Cinnamon Caramel Muffins/#NationalMuffinDay

Somedays, all you are looking for is a simple and easy way to start your day, and these Stuffed Cinnamon Caramel Muffins are your answer. Other times you are looking for a small snack to get you through to dinner, and these muffins are still the answer. You will find that these Stuffed Cinnamon Caramel Muffins are perfect anytime, so be sure to make enough for everyone! 

These muffins are loaded with little balls of caramel, that burst with flavor in your mouth. They are also loaded with cinnamon for a warm and familiar flavor. I topped the muffins with a caramel drizzle falling over the muffins and then added a few caramel balls on top. So yummy!

This was my first time using the air fryer for baking. The muffins baked quickly and perfectly, with each muffin in a reusable silicone baking cup. In the recipe for these muffins, I have included times for using an oven and an air fryer. 


Stuffed Cinnamon Caramel Muffins
(makes 1 dozen muffins)
(printable recipe at end of page)


2 cups all purpose Flour
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
2/3 cup light brown Sugar
2 large Eggs
1 cup Buttermilk
1/2 cup Butter~melted
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
1 cup Caramel Bits
small mix of Cinnamon Sugar
1/2 cup Caramel Bits
1/4 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 teaspoon Sugar
1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 cup Caramel Bits


Stir the flour and baking powder together. Stir in light brown sugar. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, buttermilk, and butter. Beat until well combined.

Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Stir the ingredients, but be careful to not overmix.

Fold the 1 cup of caramel balls into the batter.

Fill the silicone baking cups 3/4 of the way to the top. Bake in the air fryer for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. If you are baking in an oven, bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. No matter how you are cooking them, check the muffins with a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffin to make sure they are done baking. If they are not done, return them to baking, checking them in 5-10 minute intervals. 

Pour a half cup of caramel balls into a heat resistant bowl. Add a
1/4 cup of heavy whipping cream. Place a medium sized pot, filled half way with water on a burner. Turn the burner to low heat. Place the heat resistant bowl over the pot. Start mixing the caramel and the cream together, until the caramel melts and the cream and caramel become a smooth and creamy.

Mix together the 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon in a small bowl. If you made the muffins earlier, and they have cooled off, use a slightly wet small paper towel and dab the top of each muffin to get them slightly damp. Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar mix onto the top of the muffin.

Drizzle the caramel over the top of the muffin.

Add caramel balls to top of muffins and you are ready to serve and enjoy!
