Doughnut Muffins

Raise your hand if you love doughnuts! Raise your hand if you wish you could make them at home! Raise your hand if you hate frying with oil in your kitchen! Wow, you too?!

Well, I have just the solution for you. These muffins taste uncannily close to a sugared cake doughnut. They are totally awesome. Now, don't be thinking that by baking instead of frying you're skipping out on calories here. Don't you worry, each one is submerged in melted butter before rolling in cinnamon sugar. This is not health food. But I do like that they are not actually fried. No oily smelling house, no burned arms, no stress (I stress out when I get around hot oil). I made these for a baby shower and everyone loved them!

Doughnut Muffins

1-¾ cup Flour
1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
½ teaspoons Salt
½ teaspoons Nutmeg
½ teaspoons Cinnamon
⅓ cups Oil
¾ cups White Sugar
1 whole Egg
¾ cups Milk

3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 stick butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. In a large bowl, combine oil, sugar, egg and milk. Add dry ingredients and stir just until combined.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a bowl. Combine the white sugar with the cinnamon in another bowl.

Shake muffins out while still hot. Dip muffins in butter, then into the sugar/cinnamon mix. Let cool.
