These aren’t quite donut holes–they didn’t come out of the center of a donut–but they sure taste like delicious cinnamon sugar donut holes. Best part is, they are not fried! And let me just give a word of warning: make sure there are others around to help you eat this. If there weren’t other people in the house when these came out of the oven, I’m pretty sure I could have eaten them all on my own! You have been warned…
And even though these might not be fried donut holes, do trust that they are pretty unhealthy…but oh so good! That’s probably why the blog I got this recipe from called them ‘Sin’amon Morning Muffins’!!
Mini Cinnamon Sugar Muffins
Ingredients (for the muffins):
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter
Ingredients (for the cinnamon sugar coating):
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and butter and flour a mini-muffin tin. Combine the egg, milk and melted butter. Add all the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Fill the muffin tin cups about 2/3 full and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Let the muffins cool on a rack.
Next, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Melt the 1/2 cup of butter in a separate bowl. Dip each muffin in the melted butter, making sure to coat all surfaces, then roll each muffin in the cinnamon sugar mixture until completely covered.
Oh and make sure you eat as you go! It adds to the fun of it…haha! I dare you to make these delicious bites of heaven and not take a bite as you go. But as Laurie @simplycratch warns, get your fat pants ready!
