Donut Muffin

A few weeks ago we were watching "The Best Thing I Ever Ate." Someone said the best thing they ever ate was a donut muffin. Of course we knew we had to make donut muffins. Their our four words I would use to describe these muffins...THE. BEST. MUFFIN. EVER! Well in my opinion at least! These muffins were quickly devoured by me and my kids...and Brooks and his friend from work. They make the perfect breakfast, dessert, after school snack, dinner...ok really you can make them for anything, you will just want to make them.

(it's worthy of 2 pictures:))

Makes 12 muffins

1/3 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 3/4 cups flour

1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon

Mix together oil, sugar, egg and milk. Then add dry ingredients. Mix well. Grease muffin tin, and bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes. While the muffins are baking mix together sugar and cinnamon in one bowl, and melt butter in another. When muffins are done cooking, remove from tin. Coat each muffin in butter and then in cinnamon/sugar mixture.  Enjoy!

What a coincidence! I was just reading a magazine last night with a donut recipe, but was wondering how to make them without a donut pan. I thought that recipe might be too dense as a muffin. I will be sure to try this...thank you!

My mouth is watering...I'll have to see if I can get the same effect with a little soft white whole wheat flour in there. :)
