Oh my! These were the nastiest little buggers to work with. Definately a dough more than a mix. I sorely wish I had read the idea of shaping them into balls! They baked up nicely - but sooo ugly. The baptism by butter followed by a cin/sugar frolic made up for appearances. As to taste, it was hard to get much past the cin/sugar coating. Would have prefered more muffin pop and less sugar overload personally...oh but the kids enjoyed the high!
Decadent little treats! The kids went nuts for these since they taste just like blueberry doughnuts with a cinnamon sugar coating. I found them pretty rich and couldn't have managed more than one, but they are a lovely addition to breakfast or brunch. Very easy to make, the batter is more the consistency of dough, so I sort of formed into balls and placed in the mini muffin cups. The extra step of dipping in butter and rolling in cinnamon sugar goes very quickly. What a fun recipe! Thanks, homegirl, for sharing it!
I used raspberries and thought I had died and gone to heaven. This will be a frequent in my kitchen!
These were wonderful! I wish I had a digital camera to photograph these beauties! I got 31 large, round, heaping mini-muffins out of this recipe, and used 1/2 cup of butter for the topping - that was just enough. I'm not a big fan of nutmeg, so I used 1/2 tsp. cinnamon instead of the 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. The batter was pretty thick and dough-like, but the muffins turned out wonderfully. They were a bit bland by themselves, but the topping was what made them! I've tried several doughnut muffin recipes, and these were the first that actually tasted like doughnuts! They had the right consistency as well, and were very tasty! Great recipe! I'll definitely be making these again!
