Doughnut Muffins – Simple and Delicious

I follow King Arthur Flour and saw this recipe.  I am on a cupcake/muffin kick so I thought I would give them a try.  Very easy to make.  Very delicious to eat.

Doughnut Muffins


1/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 2/3 cup all purpose flour
1 cup milk

3 Tablespoons butter, melted
3 Tablespoons cinnamon sugar


  1.  Preheat oven 425 degrees.  Lightly grease muffin tin or line with paper liners.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl, cream together the butter, oil and sugars.
  3. Add eggs and whisk until combined.
  4. Using wooden spoon or spatula, stir in baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, salt and vanilla.
  5. Stir flour into the mixture alternately with the milk until all is combined.
  6. Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin cups,filling until nearly full.
  7. Bake the muffins for 15-17 minutes or until they are a pale golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and let them cool a few minutes.  While they are cooling melt the butter for the topping.  I did that in the microwave.
  9. Brush the tops of the muffins with the melted butter.  Dip and roll the tops of the muffins in the cinnamon sugar.
  10. Serve warm, or cool and wrap airtight.  Store for a day or two at room temperature.
