Cinnamon Sugar Muffins.

Just had these for breakfast. Yummers!   Next time I would replace some or all of the oil with applesauce, though!

Cinnamon and Sugar Donut Muffins

  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cup of flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat a muffin tin with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and egg until creamy. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Pour dry mixture into the egg mixture and stir to combine. Add vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla, stirring until just combined. Divide batter evenly into muffin tin.

I always make mini muffins - so this recipe fills a 24-cup pan perfectly.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes clean, about 10-13 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, then remove muffins from tin. In a small bowl, combine 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 3 tablespoons of sugar. While the muffins are still warm, roll each one in the mixture, coating all sides with the cinnamon sugar.
