Muffins That Taste Like Donuts

Yes, that really is what they are called and they really do taste like donuts. This has been a favorite in our house for many years. The original recipe made regular-size muffins, but we actually prefer the mini muffins. I started making the mini muffins when the children were young.

MUFFINS THAT TASTE LIKE DONUTS

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/3 cup canola oil

3/4 cup white sugar (first amount)

1 egg

3/4 cup milk

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

1/2 cup melted butter

3/4 cup white sugar (second amount) mixed with 1 tsp. cinnamon

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

In a bowl combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

In another bowl combine thoroughly oil, sugar, egg, and milk.

Add liquid ingredients to dry and stir only to combine.

Bake in greased muffins tins at 350 F for 20-25 minutes

Or, for mini muffins bake 15 minutes.

Shake muffins out immediately and while hot, dip tops in melted butter, then sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Yield: 12 regular-size muffins or 36 mini muffins
