Doughnut Muffins…..?

I found this recipe online complements of “Land O’Lakes”…. I really want to try this one! So I thought I would share it with you all. If anyone has tried it I would love to hear how they turned out. I think when I make them I am going to add 1 teaspoon of Vanilla to the muffin recipe though….just a thought…

Doughnut Muffins:

1/2 cup milk

1/3 cup butter (melted)

1 egg (beaten)

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


1/3 cup butter (melted)

1/2 cup sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 12 cup muffin pan or use paper muffin liners. Set aside.

Combine milk, 1/3 cup melted butter and egg in bowl. Set aside.

Combine flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in bowl.

Then add the wet and dry ingredients together and stir until combined.

Spoon batter into muffin cups and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. When done remove muffins from pans and let cool for 2 minutes.


While muffins are baking place your 1/3 cup melted butter in bowl. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in another bowl. After the muffins have cooled for 2 minutes dip muffin tops in butter and then dip in the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Done!

So please let me know if you have tried it or if you plan on trying! Would love to hear your results!

1 to 1 2/3 cups of Reeses Peanut Butter chips or Chocolate Chips (Optional)

Then Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add eggs and beat well. then add in your vanilla and milk…add the dry ingredients and make sure you get it all mixed up good. Once you get it all mixed you can fold in your chips (Peanut Butter or Chocolate) if you plan to add them. Or frost them with your favorite frosting!!!
