Start your day off right with these mouthwatering sugar and spice muffins.


  • 1 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a muffin pan with paper liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, melted butter, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; it's okay if there are a few lumps.
  5. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin pan, filling each cup about 2/3 full.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  7. Remove the muffins from the pan and transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
