Doughnut Muffins

The end of the school year is creeping upon us, and I for one, am not ready for it. Looking forward to it, just not ready for it. Anyway, I haven’t been cooking all that much, but I did manage to make some muffins for the kids the other day. Thinking that I wanted to post, I even took a picture of the muffins.

I had made muffins for the boys earlier in the week, only to have them turn out very dry and crumbly. Wanting a muffin that was anything but dry, I turned to my Joy of Cooking cookbook. What I did was take the basic muffin recipe, and make them into doughnut muffins. The boys really liked them, and they weren’t dry at all!

Doughnut Muffins - Joy of Cooking cookbook

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp nutmeg – optional

Whisk together in another bowl

2 large eggs

1 cup sour cream

2/3 cup sugar or light brown sugar, packed

1 stick warm melted unsalted butter or vegetable oil

1 tsp vanilla

½ to ¾ stick melted unsalted butter

¼ cup sugar

1 tbsp cinnamon

Add to the flour mixture and mix together with a few light strokes just until the dry ingredients are moist. Do not overmix; the batter should not be smooth. Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Bake until a toothpick inserted in 1 or 2 of the muffins comes out clean. 12 to 15 minutes. Let cook for 2 to 3 minutes before removing from the pan. If not serving hot, let cool on a rack.

For the doughnut muffin, dip the muffins in the butter and then roll in the cinnamon sugar. Serve to loved ones and have a good day.

Lemon lime muffins next – for my littlest one. Have a great day, and I hope to see you soon!!
