  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease 12 muffin cups.
  2. In large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. In a small bowl, beat egg slightly. Stir in milk and oil. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Pour the egg mixture into the well, and stir to moisten. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups until 3/4 full.

  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.

I read from a lot of reviews that said these were dry, hard, and bland. So instead of oil I used melted butter, and added about 1 extra teaspoon of cocoa powder...and it turned out wonderful! I ...
