Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This recipe was submitted to the cookbook by my Aunt Jane.

Phenomenal. A very pale muffin that DOES actually resemble the flavor of a donut hole! I am going to add a li'l vanilla to the batter next time for fun. I got 12 mini muffins and four regular sized muffins out of the batter. My 3 year old thinks it is hilarious that they are called "doughnut muffins." Neither of us can stop eating them. Thanks for sharing. :) This will be a regular on our breakfast table.

This is a great recipe -- simple and delicious! It's been a while since the last time, but I've been making these since the mid-80s and they're especially good when made in mini muffin tins. My recipe was from a Clabber Girl Baking Powder recipe booklet -- thanks for posting and reminding me I have not made these in ages!
