Cinnamon Roll Muffins

A perfect Valentine's Day breakfast for your sweetie!

Cinnamon Roll Muffins
(Yields 12 muffins)

1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
3 cups flour

5 tbsp butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 tbsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla

Preheat the oven to 375°

In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar, baking soda, salt, vanilla and egg. Add the buttermilk, then the flour. Stir until thoroughly combined.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for a minute or two. Roll the dough into a 12-inch by 24-inch rectangle. Spread with butter, then sprinkled with the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Roll the dough into a log beginning with the wide side. Stretch the log slightly as you roll to keep a tight seam. Cut the log in half, then each half in half again. Each of these small pieces will yield 3 cinnamon rolls.

Place the rolls in a greased muffin pan and bake for 15-20 minutes. 

While the muffins are baking, mix the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla together for the icing.  After the muffins have cooled for 5 minutes, top with icing and enjoy!
