donut muffins!

take the little ones and get in the kitchen - were making donut muffins! ahhh donuts...we have a love/hate relationship. when i was little we used to get donuts every weekend on our way to sunday school, so they bring back a sort of nostalgic feeling, yet every time i eat one.... ok eat two ... or three... i immediately think to myself why god? why? why is something so good so bad ..... that’s when the book spoke to me... my recipe book that is... donut mini muffins! ok ok so maybe these aren’t the best snack but muffin sounds healthier than donut.... right? plus they are small so you can just pop one or two to satisfy sugar cravings without feeling guilty. my lil’ mcnugget and i went on a mission!

(remember this is supposed to be fun and control your OCD and let them go wild...)

here's what ya need:

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup butter, melted

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease a muffin tin, set aside. Mix up the 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup butter and nutmeg in a large bowl. Then, add in the milk, baking powder and flour until just combined. Fill muffin tins about 3/4 full and bake for 15-20 minutes. side note... i made mini mini muffins.. i would recommend making them atleast the next size up...

while the goods are baking get your cinnamon-sugar mixed up. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a separate bowl. When the muffins are done, remove them from the pan. Dip the tops in the melted butter and then roll the WHOLE muffin in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Let cool... or not.

(if your kids and counters don't look like this.... your doing it wrong...)
