My son and I were in the mood to do some baking so we decided to look for a tasty muffin recipe. We found this recipe online at My Adventures in Food that looked easy and super delicious. My kids love anything with cinnamon so I knew they would really love these tasty treats. My son did a great job cracking his first egg and had a fun time mixing all the ingredients together. The house smelled fantastic while these muffins were baking. My daughter was thrilled when she came home from school to this special after-school snack. Needless to say, these muffins were a huge hit with both of my kids and they didn’t last long.
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
How to Make Cinnamon and Sugar Donut Muffins
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, filling each cup about 2/3 full. Side Note: We like our muffins with a bigger muffin top so we filled our tins nearly to the top and only made 9 muffins.
Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes clean, about 15-18 minutes. Let cool for 3-5 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 cinnamon sugar.
Let the cinnamon and sugar-coated muffins cool on a wire rack before serving. Enjoy!
