Donut Muffins



I spotted these little babies over at Dishing Delights and was sold. I made them a few days later, quickly and easily and they were delicious! Simple little cakes with a cinnamon sugar topping - how can you go wrong!

My sister, Sal remembered I was making them and dropped in and really enjoyed them as well. So much so, she made them herself.

This is the type of recipe I will use over and over as its easy and everyone will enjoy.

2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt

2 large eggs
1 cup plain yogurt
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
4 to 8 tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla

Topping:
55 grams butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
½ tsp cinnamon


Position oven rack in the middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a standard muffin pan with paper cups.

Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Add flour mixture and mix with light strokes until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Don't overmix; batter should not be smooth.

Divide batter among the muffin cups and bake until a toothpick inserted in one or two of the muffins come out clean, 15-20 minutes.

While the muffins are baking, melt the butter and place in a bowl just large enough to hold a muffin. Combine 1/4 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small, shallow bowl. As soon as the muffing are done, dip them one at a time in the melted butter and then roll in the sugar mixture. Set on a rack to cool.
