Cinnamon Sugar Donut Mini Muffins
I have been wanting to try and make baked donuts, but the problem with that is, I don't like donuts. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem, because I don't like a lot of sweets, but Ethan didn't want them either. What?? This was my reaction. Anyway, I saw these wonderful donut mini muffins, which remind me of donut holes, and these Salted Carmel Chocolate Donuts that Ethan adored.
These could not be easier to make. You mix them up, bake for about 15 minutes, roll in butter and cinnamon-sugar, and eat, immediately. Yes, you heard that right, they are rolled in butter. These are a winner in our house. Ethan loved that he could eat a few for dessert and then have some for breakfast too, both being perfectly acceptable.

1/2 cup of Sugar
1/4 cup of Butter, melted
3/4 teaspoon of Nutmeg, ground
1/2 cup of Milk
1 teaspoon of Baking Powder
1 cup of Flour
Additional: 1/4 cup of Butter, 1/2 cup of Sugar, 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
First, pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Next, in a large bowl mix the sugar, butter, and nutmeg. Stir in the milk and add in the flour and baking powder until well combined.
Now, grease a mini-muffin pan and fill each cup half full, this recipe should make 24 mini muffins.
Next, bake for 15-20 minutes, until cooked.
While the muffins are baking, get out two small bowls. In one have the melted butter and in the other combine the sugar and cinnamon.
When the muffins are done, roll them in butter and then in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container.
