“DOUGHNUT” MUFFINS

Doughnut Muffins - Butter With a Side of Bread

My family loves doughnuts, but I’m not a big fan of frying things so we don’t make them very often at home. I recently came across this recipe for Doughnut Muffins and thought I’d give it a try. The results are delicious – I’m not sure that they taste exactly¬†like a doughnut but pretty close and no frying is involved. You do dip the muffins in butter which is a pretty good substitute for deep frying in oil!

DOUGHNUT MUFFINS

  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup milk

Topping

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Cream oil and sugar in mixing bowl. Add remaining ingredients and pour into greased muffin tin. Bake 20-25 minutes at 350. Muffins should be slightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes and then remove from the muffin tin. Place the melted butter in one bowl, and mix the sugar and cinnamon in another. Roll each muffin in the melted butter and then roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Enjoy!
