Sugar Donut Muffins

So I have been looking for different ways to spice up breakfast every now and then. Eating from the taco truck ordering the same thing 5 days a week does get a little boring. Well these little donut muffins will definitely spice up your breakfast and they are very addicting! This is an easy recipe for a beginner baker, no yeast to mess with and it's just a matter of mixing and sticking them in the oven. Hope you enjoy!!
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking power
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup milk (low fat is fine)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter, for dipping
  • 1/2 cup sugar, for rolling
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon, for rolling
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and grease muffin tin with cooking spray. In a large bowl beat together sugar and egg until light and fluffy.

In small bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.

Pour into sugar/egg mixture and stir until well combined.

Add in vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix well.

Pour into muffin tins, filling each about 3/4 full.

Bake for about 15 minutes until tester comes out clean.

Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave. Stir together sugar and cinnamon in another small bowl. When the muffins are done allow to cool for a few minutes, until you are able to handle them easily. Dunk the tops of the muffins in the melted butter and then the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

All done! You can eat them hot or store in an air tight container to devour in the morning. I hope you enjoy them!
