The smell of these muffins straight out of the oven instantly creates that feel of Christmas. Warm spices wafting around the kitchen doesn’t get any better! The cinnamon cream cheese frosting is an absolute must and completely takes these muffins to Christmas heaven!

 

Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Line a muffin tray with paper cases. In a bowl, whisk together the melted butter, buttermilk, lemon zest and set aside.
In a standalone mixer, beat the eggs with the sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the butter mixture and whisk until combined. Gently fold in the flour and spices until just combined. Be sure not to over mix the batter.
Spoon the mixture into the papercases and place in the oven to cook for 15-20 minutes until brown on top. Remove from the oven and place on a wire wrack to cool.
While the muffins are baking, beat the cream cheese, icing sugar and cinnamon until smooth and combined. When the muffins are cool, with a knife spread the frosting on the top.
