food: mini donut muffins

One of my sweet friends made these the other day and raved about them - so I wanted to make some :) Donuts? Muffins? Cinnamon and sugar? All in one recipe!? Yes, please :) They are nothing short of amazing. A quick little sweet snack or dish for a brunch :)
Mini Donut Muffins - adapted slightly from
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
3/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease mini muffin pans (24 muffins).

Combine sugar, butter, and nutmeg. Mix well. Add flour, baking powder and milk, and stir to combine. Fill each muffin cup about half full. Batter will be somewhat dough-y. I used a tablespoon to fill each cup.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until beginning to brown.  While muffins are baking, combine the 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon in a small bowl. Dip baked muffins in butter and coat completely, then roll in cinnamon sugar mixture.  Makes 24 mini muffins. Enjoy!

And P.S. Thank you all so much for the sweetness about my project published in the Let's Make Cards! magazine here and on FB and Instagram. Seriously, ya'll made my day :) Thank you :)


  1. So so good! Made two batches in two days; contemplating a third. :)

  2. I can't wait to try these. My daughter loves donuts but their becoming to expensive, these would be perfect (I wonder how would they taste if you add jelly on the inside!!!).

    Take care and thank you for sharing.

  3. These look amazing! I am always looking for recipes that are great to take to sick friends or even put out on lazy Sunday afternoons. Thanks!
