I’m in charge of bringing breakfast into my Creative Writing class tomorrow. Typically students bring in Dunkin’ Donut munchkins. I’m taking it up a notch by making my own version. And these are better.
Dipped in butter and rolled in cinnamon and sugar, these are to die for. The inside is dense, moist, and full of cinnamon and nutmeg. If you want your house to smell good, make these. If you want your stomach to be pleased, make these. If you want others to scream in delight, make these.
Cinnamon Donut Muffins
Makes 12 regular-sized muffins
1 3/4 C All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 C oil
3/4 C sugar
3/4 C milk
1/2 C butter, melted
1/3 C sugar
1 tbs cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a muffin tin.
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, combine oil, sugar, egg and milk. Add the dry ingredient and stir until just combined and still clumpy.
Bake 15-20 minutes. While baking, melt the butter in the microwave in a small bowl (the shallower the better). In another bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
While the muffins are still hot, dip in butter then roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Allow to cool.
