Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffin

When it comes to donuts, I always opt for original flavor – plain coated with generous amount of sugar. This Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffin is a marriage between sugar Donut and muffin cake. Think a soft fluffy muffin that tastes like donut. I’d imagine food mashup enthusiasts will probably come up with names like “Doffins or “Muffnuts”, etc haha.
It is so incredibly easy to put together and perfect even for novice bakers. The addition of cinnamon mixed with the sugar provides an additional warmth aroma to the muffins. If you are a proud owner of a doughnut pan (which I’m not ), there’s no better time to use it than with this recipe.

 

Ingredients:
2 2/3 cups (330 g) plain flour
1 cup (240 ml) buttermilk (click here for substitute if unavailable)
1 cup (225 g) caster sugar
12 tbsp (115 g) unsalted butter – soften at room temperature
2 large eggs
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¾ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
1 ¼ tsp nutmeg powder (optional)

For cinnamon sugar coating:
2 tbsp (28 g) unsalted butter – melted
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon powder

Makes 12 muffins
