I read about these muffins on the Pioneer Woman's site....and I knew I had to try them. I really love cake doughnuts and never buy them because of the bad ingredients. I had high hopes for these......and while they don't taste "exactly" like doughnuts, they are truly delicious. The kids loved them also....and I'm planning on rolling them in powdered sugar next time for a little variety.
Recipe: (from Tasty Kitchen)
1-3/4 c. flour
1-1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/3 c. oil
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter, melted
1/3 c. sugar
1 T. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 12-muffin tin.
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, combine oil, sugar, egg, and milk. Add dry ingredients and stir only to combine.
Divide into muffin tins.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Meanwhile, prepare topping by melting butter in one bowl and combining sugar and cinnamon in another bowl.
Remove muffins while still hot. Roll each in butter (cover completely) and then in the cinnamon sugar. Let cool.
