I’ve never met a donut I didn’t like. When I was little, our church was on top of a hill and right below it was a large, commercial grocery store. Every Sunday between Sunday School and church, my little girlfriends and I would sprint down that hill and pick out two (not one, but TWO) giant donuts and stuff our faces with them. I can still taste those donuts, especially the maple cream-filled ones, like it was yesterday. I will never pass up a good donut.
When I came across these ‘donut muffins’ I taped the recipe to my kitchen cabinet so I wouldn’t forget. A cinnamon-sugar cake donut in mini-muffin form, these are a perfect mini sweet treat for morning coffee. Oh — and do not skip the cinnamon sugar coating — it absolutely makes these.
