A hybrid between a donut and a muffin – sweet, fluffy, dipped in butter and then rolled in cinnamon sugar. These are the perfect treat with coffee or tea!
Hi! Hope your Thanksgiving was great! We spent some time together as a family in the San Diego area. We visited the USS Midway, went on a fishing boat (caught a couple, but had to throw em back), rode our bikes EVERYWHERE, and had a great time.
We’re back now, and while Thanksgiving is over, now I can get excited about Christmas. Raise your hand if you put your tree and decorations up already? We haven’t, but we will this weekend!Sweet, fluffy, Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins #recipe #muffin #homemade #baking #cinnamonClick To Tweet
So, want to talk about these donut muffins?
I thought so. They’re SO easy to make, and the batter makes a TON. Like, 48 mini muffins.
I tried making them in my donut pan, but didn’t love the result. The next time I tried them, I put them in mini muffin pans, and … well, you can see how they are! Yum!
I love to have baked goods hanging about for whenever people drop by. Granted, we live a fairly hermit lifestyle, but the intentions are good. Want to come over and drink coffee with me?
Want more baked goods? Of course you do!
