Donut Muffins

Donut Muffins

I was inspired to try these after Caribou Coffee sold them. I was addicted, they are SO good. To make them less calories, I substitute applesauce for the 1/3 cup butter in the recipe. I still roll in the butter for the topping.

1 ½ cups flour

½ cup sugar

1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg

½ cup milk

1/3 cup butter, melted


Grease muffin cups or line with paper cupcake liners. In a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients. Add egg, milk, vanilla and melted butter. Mix. Do not over mix. Spoon into muffin cups ½ to ¾ full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Roll in topping. Makes 12.

5 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
In small bowl, melt butter in microwave. In another bowl mix sugar and cinnamon. Roll each muffin in butter and then in sugar mixture.
