Doughnut Muffins Recipe

After many tries and many different recipes that just weren't up to par, I finally decided to recreate my own version of a doughnut muffin. It has the taste of a cake doughnut and it's a lot simpler to make. —Morgan Botwinick, Richmond, Virginia

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 20, 2014

These muffins were very light and fluffy tasting. I will say that my batch made 18 not 12 and the muffins cups were very full. If I make these again, I will definitely use the coarse sugar as I think that was a key ingredient for making these go from OK to fab. Ours were just OK and not all that fabulous with the regular cinnamon and sugar coating on the top.

Who doesn't like doughnuts or muffins especially when they are combined together!! These rich and spiced muffins are delicious and so easy. I used my mini loaf pans and got 4 loaves out of this recipe. I sprinkled the cinnamon and sugar on top of the loaves before baking. Smelled so good when the were baking! Would be a great addition with brunch!

I made these muffins over the weekend and they were absolutely delicious. I also added some extra cinnamon to the batter but otherwise followed the recipe as it was printed. My husband is not big on muffins but he really liked these. They really do taste like doughnuts without the deep frying. I also shared with three of my neighbors and they also really liked them. I will definitely make these again.

One more thing...I used a 3/4 oz. cookie scoop and the batch made 12 regular sized muffins and 24 mini muffins. The reg. sized muffins weren't as full, but they were great for my 5 small kids.

MY REVIEW

If you make them as mini muffins, they taste just like the state fair mini donuts coated in cinnamon and sugar. The regular sized muffins lose a little of that flavor. I added 1/4 tsp. extra cinnamon to the batter, but otherwise followed the directions exactly and they were a huge hit!! My husband and I joked that anything with that much butter in the batter and then rolled in butter and cinnamon and sugar ought to be delicious...and they were!
