Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins

I highly recommend you take a few minutes one Saturday morning and make a batch of these. They are some of the best breakfast treats I've had in a long time, and they're easy to make! I came across them at the Noble Pig and gave them a try this past weekend. It takes just like a jelly filled doughnut.

Noble Pig

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 cup sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 cup milk
Jam (pick your favorite flavor!)

1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon; whisk to combine.

In another bowl, combine sugar, oil, egg, and milk.

Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients just until moistened. 

Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups half-full; place one teaspoon jam on top.  Cover jam with enough batter to fill muffin cups three-fourths full.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Place melted butter in a small bowl; combine sugar and cinnamon in another bowl.  Immediately after removing muffins from the oven, dip tops in butter, then in cinnamon-sugar.


I had full intentions on baking these, eating one or two, and bringing the leftovers to my co-workers. Funny thing happened; I woke up on Monday and there were only four left! Unfortunately there weren't enough to bring into my office so Chris and I had to finish them. Bummer! ;)
