Donut Muffins

  • 1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 c. melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c. skim milk
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 T. melted butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place liners in a 12-cup muffin tin and lightly spray with cooking spray. Set aside.

Meanwhile, combine the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, salt and ground nutmeg in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Combine the 1/4 cup melted butter, egg, vanilla extract and skim milk in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

Fill the muffin liners about half full and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove the muffins to a wire wrack and cool slightly.

Combine the 1/4 cup sugar and ground cinnamon in a small custard container. Brush each muffin lightly with melted butter and dip into the sugar mixture. Serve warm.

These muffins are best served right away, but if you do serve them later, warm them gently in the microwave before serving.
