Sunday Brunch: Donut Muffins

For my first ever SUNDAY BRUNCH LINK UP I thought that I would share my most favorite weekend recipe ever...
Donut Muffins!!! (btw, does the spelling of "donut" bother anyone else? shouldn't it be spelled "doughnut?")

If you've known me for more than a week, you will know of my obsession with Donut Muffins!! We make and eat these every weekend, and sometimes we even make an extra batch to snack on throughout the week.

I love donuts and used to eat them ALL.OF.THE.TIME. however, since I've had to cut soy out of my diet, I've had to find alternatives for my Saturday donut+coffee habit.  I think potato flour would be an awesome alternative for my gluten free friends (however, it's been awhile since I've baked gluten free, so, I would love to hear suggestions).  I first found this recipe here on Paisley Jade and, have since tweaked it a little bit to fit our needs.

DONUT MUFFINS  or  DOUGHNUT MUFFINS (whichever you prefer)

1 3/4 C flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg

1/3 C melted butter
3/4 C sugar
3/4 C milk
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 12-hole muffin tin with baking spray (the kind that has flour is the best!) and set aside.

In a medium bowl combine: Flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

In a separate large bowl whisk together melted butter, sugar, milk, and egg.

Add dry ingredients and stir to combine.  Pour into prepared muffin tin and bake for 15-20 minutes until tops are firm.  (**don't be surprised, the muffins tops will appear very light in color)

Very gently turn muffins out onto a cooling rack and immediately dip them in:

10T melted butter

then roll them in a mixture of;

2/3 C + 1/6 C Sugar (I know, I know... a very strange measurement! I always find that I need another half of the 1/3 C measurement we'll call it 1/6 C)
2 1/2 T cinnamon
and devour!!


  1. I hope I did this right! I didn't have ingredients to make what I wanted to share, so I used an old blog post with a delish recipe. Is that ok? It is one of my favorites to make for breakfast. :) Thanks for hosting this!

    1. Your recipe sounds delish, Sarah!! Yep, you did it right...I think you can copy the code and paste it into your blog and it will show this list...I think ;0) thank you so much for sharing, sweet friend!

  2. These sound delicious! What a fun idea for a blog hop. I also love that green egg cup! Thanks.

    1. Thank you so much Wendy! Can you believe I picked that egg cup up at hobby lobby over five years ago?
