Come On Up To The House

Doughnut Muffins

I recently was reading through a couple blogs that I follow and found this recipe, only in doughnut form. Since I don’t have a doughnut form pan, I thought muffins were the way to go.

So, I got up early with Finnegan and put these muffins together. They were really quick to make and delicious. The kids both loved them.


French Breakfast Muffins

5 tbsp butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup milk

2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or use muffin cups.

Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add egg and mix well.

Add flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg and pour milk over while mixing.

Fill muffin tins half full. Bake 15-20 minutes. Take out of pan immediately and swirl tops into melted butter, then sugar and cinnamon mixture. Makes 12 muffins. You can also skip the topping and serve with jam.
