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.

Now these are not on my diet, but then I'm having trouble staying on it! I even have all the ingredients to make these too, so one more I'll have to try! You should be getting your roosters soon. They will look great against your background here!

That looks like a great recipe! I am going to write it down and give it a whirl!!! My husband has often spoken of the homemade doughnuts his Mother used to make. While I am a good cook on many counts, doughnuts and yeast goods have always been elusive. This sounds like a recipe that I can handle and he will like. Thank you! If he likes them, maybe he'll let me buy those dishes I saw the other day! :-) Have a great weekend!!
