Donut Muffins!!!!!

One of our favorite baked snacks are donut muffins, they taste just like a donut but are not fried.  They are so yummy with some tea or coffee. The kids like them with milk.

24 T unsalted butter (room temp)
1 3/4 C suger
4 lg eggs
6 C flour
1T and 2t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 3/4 t salt
1 t ground nutmeg
1-2/3 C milk
1/4 C buttermilk

for the coating
16 T unsalted butter
2C suger
2T ground cinnamon

Preheat muffins to 350 F In a large bowl cream butter, and suger. Then beat in eggs one at a time. Sift together flour, baking powder baking soda salt and nutmeg. In a seperate bowl combine the milk and buttermilk. Using a wooden spoon mix a quarter of the dry ingredients into the butter mixture then a third of the milk continue mixing dry then wet, alternating and ending with the dry. Mix until smooth. Greese and flour muffin tins and fill to the rim of each cup. Bake until firm, 35 min.

While baking melt butter for topping and in seperate bowl mix cinnamon and suger.  When muffins are cool enough roll in butter then in suger/cinn mixture place on rack.  Sometimes I wait another 5 minutes and roll them in the suger/cinn again.  It gives an extra coating. The kids love this part...of course.



  1. My husband loves donuts but isn't keen on the oil so these will be great! I'm adding buttermilk to my shopping list right away! Thanks for sharing them on Happy lil hearts are baking x

    1. Your welcome. We are going to make some more this weekend. We just made butter and have the buttermilk left over so we will use that.

  2. You make your own butter! That is super impressive!

    1. It was a history and science lesson with the kids really fun though and easy.

  3. Looks like a fun, easy recipe! My daughter got a mini donut maker for Christmas and likes to bake up a batch every once in a while.
