Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins Recipe

Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins Recipe

Meet the Cook: All five of our children are grown...in fact, we now have five grandchildren. But, back when they were youngsters, they loved these as after-school treats and as part of Sunday brunch. The house my husband and I live in is unusual - a little old country schoolhouse built in the 1800's! We are just about done remodeling it and ready to get started with adding a greenhouse. -Sharon Pullen, Alvinston, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Jam
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. In a small bowl, combine sugar, oil, egg and milk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  • 2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups half full; place 1 teaspoon jam on top. Cover jam with enough batter to fill muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
