Mouthwatering Doughnut Muffins

I found this recipe on Meghan's blog here (go to her blog for drool worthy pictures) a while ago and we have enjoyed these muffins several times already. I've made miniature muffins and found that they are the best because you get more sugary-cinnamon coating, of course! Big or small, they are perfect with a cup of coffee. My little guy enjoys them so much that he is responsible for consuming 4 of them in two days.



Doughnut Muffins

Ingredients for the muffins:
1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup milk

For the coating:
1/4 -1/2 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Directions:
1.Preheat oven to 350F or 180 C degrees and grease a muffin tin.
2.Combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
3.Combine oil, sugar, egg and milk in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients and stir only to combine.

4.Bake at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes. While muffins are baking, melt butter in a small bowl. In another small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
5.Shake muffins out of the muffin tin while the muffins are still hot.
6.Dip muffins in the melted butter and then into the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Place on a wire rack and allow to cool.
