Cinnamon Donut Muffins

These muffins have been on my to-do list for a while, they look so delicious. They are super simple to make, literally 10 minutes and they are in the oven. My daughter thought they were fabulous, which is not surprising. They are dense like a muffin but the texture with the cinnamon sugar reminds me of a donut. I made them in my mini muffin tin and I think that is the best way to enjoy them. I don’t think it is completely necessary to dip them in butter, the cinnamon sugar will stick if you roll them in it right out of the oven. So, whip a batch of these up to accompany your breakfast this weekend.


Muffin ingredients:

1 3/4 cup Flour

1.5 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Nutmeg

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1/3 cup of Oil (I used vegetable)

3/4 cup White sugar

1 Egg

3/4 cup Milk ( I used 2%)

For the topping:

1/4 cups butter

1/2 cup sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

In a small bowl  combine dry ingredients with a whisk or fork. In a larger bowl combine oil, sugar, egg and milk. Add in the dry ingredients and stir just enough to combine. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. While they are baking melt the butter in a bowl and in another bowl combine the cinnamon and sugar. While the muffins are still hot dip them in the butter (optional but not necessary) then in the sugar mixture, cool on a cooling rack.
