Mini Donut Muffins

Yeah, you read right. Mini Donut MUFFINS! Thanks to Stumbleupon, I came across these little delights that I just had to bake right away! 

So I did. And it was a pure success.

My favorite part? Dipping the tops into melted butter and cinnamon sugar. Mr. Sweets thought there was too much sugar on the top. But really, when is there ever *too much* sugar on anything?!

Makes approx. 22 

Muffin Ingredients:
  •  1/2 cup White Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Margarine or Butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon Nutmeg......I found this to be too much so I would put about 1/2 tsp instead
  • 1/2 cup Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 cup All-Purpose (Plain) Flour

Top of Muffin Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup Margarine/Butter
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon

♥ Preheat oven to 190C / 375F

♥ Mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup margarine or butter, and nutmeg in a large bowl

♥ Stir in the milk

♥ Mix in the baking powder and flour until just combined

♥ Fill a greased mini muffin tin half full (because I'm an optimistic kind of girl!) of the batter

♥ Bake 15-20 minutes, or until the tops are golden

♥ While the muffins are baking, melt the 1/4 cup margarine or butter in a small bowl

♥ In another bowl, mix together the sugar and cinnamon

♥ Once the muffins are done baking, dip the tops of them into the butter, then roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture

♥ Let cool if you can resist trying one right away! 

Smooches!! xoxo

These look so good I linked them in my current post on Orgasmic Chef. I want to touch each one with my fingers and then of course I will have "tainted" them with my germs and I'll have to eat them all.

At least that's what my mother said when I was a kid. Okay, she didn't say it like that. She said, "Don't touch any but the one you want to eat, Maureen, because nobody wants to eat something you've had your fingers all over." Means the same thing to me. :)

Michelle, I would eat these donuts in a heartbeat! I think there's still some more space left on my hips to accommodate these :-). And you're right, there can't ever be too much sugar....EVER!

Sound delicious and the cinnamon coating gets lots of extra points - yum!

My family loves these little muffins. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog and I'd love it if you'd come by and link up your muffins.

Lisa said...

Thanks for linking your muffins up to Sweets for a Saturday. I hope you'll be able to join in again this week.

Michelle said...

Aw thank you, Lisa! I definitely will be! :)

These donuts muffins are yummy, but I'm only allowed to eat gluten free desserts. Are there any ingredients that can replace cinnamon? I really don't like the aroma of it.

@Sandra--thank you! You can try allspice or just nutmeg, if you like!
