Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Microwave the buttermilk until almost warm.
  2. Add first 8 (or 9, if using brown sugar) ingredients to the bread machine in order given.
  3. Set the machine on "dough cycle".
  4. 5 minutes into the cycle, add in cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and vanilla.
  5. When cycle is complete, remove dough from bread maker and place in a greased mini muffin pan. Make sure not to over-fill, as the dough will rise quite a bit!
  6. Place 1 chocolate chip on the top of each muffin.
  7. Cover with 2 tea towels and let rise in a warm, sheltered area for 1 1/2 - 2 hours.
  8. Preheat oven to 375* F and bake for 7-8 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  9. While the muffins are baking, prepare the glaze by melting the butter and cinnamon together in a microwave (about 10 seconds should do the trick).
  10. Stir egg whites into glaze mixture.
  11. Remove muffins from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
  12. While the muffins are still warm (but chocolate chips are set), brush glaze overtop.
  13. Enjoy!
