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!

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!
