Mini Donut Muffins

Last year, I made these goodies for a Christmas party with a ton of hungry athletes, and they were a huge hit.  These little donut muffins are the most addicting dessert I've ever had. They're like potato chips...once you have one, you just keeping popping them in your mouth and can't stop!  They taste just like cinnamon-sugar donuts, but in muffin form.  Typically, I would prefer a donut over a muffin...but these taste better than any donut I've ever had. The nutmeg is the secret ingredient that give them a wonderful, slightly spiced taste.  Because they're tiny, you get a buttery, cinnamon-sugary taste in every bite.  I promise you: you won't be able to have just one.

Yield: 12 mini muffins


  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 24 mini-muffin cups.
  2. Mix 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons butter, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Stir in the milk, then mix in the baking powder and flour until just combined. Fill the prepared mini muffin cups about half full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops are lightly golden, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. While muffins are baking, place 2 tablespoons of melted butter in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together 1/4 cup of sugar with the cinnamon. Remove muffins from their cups, dip each muffin in the melted butter, and roll in the sugar-cinnamon mixture. Let cool and serve.
