Cinnamon sugar mini donut muffins

They are so fun to make and all you need is a bowl and a whisk (or a spatula). These have no egg yet they have milk so they are not vegan but it’s still great to have a recipe that doesn’t require eggs. Tell me you too have days when baking bug strikes and you find yourself without eggs? Way too often for me. It got to the point where my Hubby is looking for chickens we could raise in the backyard.

These donut muffins are super delicious. Dunking them in melted butter and then rolling in cinnamon sugar is not only fun (kids love it) but also keeps them utterly soft and (forgive the word…) moist. They literally melt in your mouth.

 

Ingredients:

1/2 cup white sugar

1/4 cup margarine

melted 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 cup milk 1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup margarine

melted 1/2 cup white sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

 

Instructions:

  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Grease mini muffin tin (cavities and the top). Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together melted butter and sugar. Add spices and vanilla, whisk well. Add milk and whisk again. Add dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  • Fill the muffin pan. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 17 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in the center of each muffin comes out clean. Cool in pan for 2 minutes, transfer onto a wire rack.
  • Prepare the coating: melt butter in a small bowl; in another small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. When muffins are completely cool, dunk each one in melted butter and then roll in cinnamon sugar. Return onto wire rack and let cool for few minutes.
