Bastille Day Muffins


Happy Bastille Day to our mostly non-French readers!

I have been celebrating Bastille Day (in the muffin-making sense) for a few years now, ever since my friend Rebekkah (hi!) introduced this recipe to me! She had just moved into our apartment and we all woke up one morning to an insanely good smell coming from the kitchen. We then learned that it was Bastille Day. I’ve been an observer ever since!

This year, I made a batch of normal sized muffins and mini (almost micro) muffins.

These are basically just muffin tops… but that’s the best part, right?


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
        For the tops:
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Stir together dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, mix together wet ingredients.
  3. Make a well in the center of the mixture, and pour the wet ingredients in. Stir until moistened. It may be a little lumpy.
  4. Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan, filling about 2/3 of each cup.
  5. Bake 20-25 minutes if using standard size sheet, 18-20 if using mini sheet.
  6. Combine remaining sugar & cinnamon. When muffins are finished baking, dip tops in melted butter, and then the cinnamon & sugar mixture. Serve warm!
