Andrew’s coffee and cinnamon muffins

 

So the lovely boyfriend made these http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/23841/coffee-muffins.aspx they certainly are a lot less sickly than mine!

They were really easy to make although the oil gives it an odd texture, I think I prefer using butter in cakes etc but im guessing thats what separates it from just cakes, im not sure. what do you think? What separates a cake from a muffin in your opinion? Also trying to work out what tea goes well with these, I seem to be on a chai fix recently so keep wanting to put it with everything.  The cinnamon black tea I have may be a good call with even more cinnamon what can go wrong? 😀
