Doughnut Muffins

Welcome friends, glad you stopped by. I am in a muffin mood this week. With this being the official first full week of school for the kids, what would be better for the morning rush than these?

These amazing muffins will take you back to the days when we could still find time to make homemade doughnuts. They are quick and easy and will fulfil your doughnut cravings. Whoever came up with this recipe is truly genius.

Doughnut Muffins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and liberally spray a 12 count muffin pan

10 Tablespoons of butter (softened)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 cup of milk

Beat butter and sugar till creamy. Add in eggs one at a time. In a separate bowl, sift flour baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Lightly incorporate dry mix with wet and slowly add milk. Spoon in prepared muffin tins. Bake for 15 minutes (mine took 17) Let cool for 10 minutes and roll in 1 cup of powdered sugar with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.

The nutmeg really gives these that old fashioned powdered sugar doughnut taste. They even taste better the next day, if you can get them to last that long! Let me know how they turn out for you. Thanks for stopping by.

Guess What?

Good Morning! I am so super excited! I just found I actually won something. Anita hosted a giveaway of Brava Rooster by Mikasa. I want to thank her and the sheriff for drawing my name!

I am a new and apparently lazy blogger but this just boosted my motivation to get to posting all these yummy treats I have been working so hard on. Now they cant rest on some fabulous dishes too.

Every Thursday I stop by Tablescape Thursday Susan has made a wonderful place for Anita and many amazing other tablescapping bloggers to meet up. These ladies and even a few gentleman are amazing. You will be awestruck every week. I have learned so much from them all!

Did I mention that Anita sews her table linens? Make it a point to hop over there and bookmark her site. You will look forward to the visit I promise. I am talking perfection on a colossal scale. Run quickly dishaholics!

I need to go settle myself down now. Can you tell that I have never won anything? What a pay off! Rooster's are my passion they have overtaken the dining room. Have a wonderful day and Thanks again Anita and Mikasa!

I am embarrased to add that I am having trouble linking, so here is Anita's blog and Susan at Tablescape Thursday (Insert red face here!)
