Cinnamon Sugar Muffins that taste like donuts...

I saw a recipe on Pinterest that said "Muffins that taste like donuts". They looked really good.


So I thought what the heck. I might as well try them. I love anything that has sugar and cinnamon as ingredients. So I gathered my ingredients and mixed it like the directions said. 


I greased the mini muffin pans and baked them for 15 minutes at 350° as per the instructions. While they were baking, I melted butter in one bowl and mixed the cinnamon and sugar in another bowl. 


Then it was time. When they were finished, I popped them right out of the muffin tins into a container. I used my Pyrex pie plate and preceded with the next steps. 


I dipped then in the butter then immediately rolled them in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. The finished product was unbelievably delicious.


WARNING! They will just pop right into your mouth if you aren't careful. I think I ate about 4 or 5 before I was finished with the dipping process. You see so many Pinterest Fails that go wrong that I just love it when a recipe is spot on and it works out exactly like it should. Here is the recipe. We like a lot of cinnamon so I put a little more in the sugar/cinnamon mix to roll it in. But that is a personal preference. If you make them, let me know how yours turned out.

INGREDIENTS
1-¾ cup Flour
1-½ teaspoon Baking Powder
½ teaspoons Salt
½ teaspoons Nutmeg
½ teaspoons Cinnamon
⅓ cups Oil
¾ cups White Sugar
1 whole Egg
¾ cups Milk
FOR THE TOPPING:
¼ cups Butter
⅓ cups White Sugar
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
PREPARATION
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.
Combine oil, sugar, egg and milk. Add dry ingredients and stir only to combine.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a bowl. Combine the white sugar with the cinnamon in another bowl.
Shake muffins out while still hot. Dip muffins in butter, then into the sugar/cinnamon mix. Let cool.

NOTE: IF YOU CAN LET THEM COOL WITHOUT POPPING ONE IN YOUR MOUTH, YOU HAVE MORE WILL POWER THAN I DO.
