Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins

Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins

I’m behind in my blogging, between Easter and then work, I’ve got a few recipes I need to get posted so we’ll see how I do over the next few days.  I made a bunch of muffins on Friday night for Saturday morning and then the Saturday morning reason for the muffins fell through and I found myself with about 3 1/2 dozen muffins lying around the house.  Bob, Zach and I do not need that many muffins so I texted one of my best friends in the whole wide world (who happens to have 5 kids!) and said do you want some muffins?  It was like a cartoon because a few minutes later my doorbell rang and it was one of her cute daughters standing on my doorstep smiling at me!  Who doesn’t want free muffins?  This recipe comes from a blog called “My Kitchen in the Rockies”.    They were delicious!


1 3/4 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

1/3 cup melted unsalted butter

3/4 cups sugar

1 egg

3/4 cup milk


1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

3/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

(Instead of the cinnamon sugar mix, I used my Alison’s Pantry Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast Sugar)

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Line 12 muffin cups with liners.

2  Mix all dry ingredients, flour through cinnamon and set aside.

3  Mix all wet ingredients, butter through milk including sugar.

4  Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until just combined.

5  Scoop batter into muffin cups.

6  Bake 18 – 22 minutes.

7  Mix sugar and cinnamon for coating.

8  Brush hot muffins with melted butter and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture.
