This were OK. They did not have a donut (or old fashioned donut) consistency - more like regular vanilla/plain muffins. I don't think I will make these again.
I just made these for my daughter's "Muffins with Mom" event at school, and they were fabulous! They stayed moist and somewhat cakey, and the sugar on top set them off nicely. I doubled the recipe and I did add a pinch of cinnamon. I also accidentally used Vanilla Nut & Butter Flavoring for 1 of the 2 teaspoons of vanilla that the double batch called for, but they turned out great. I really love PunzeePuss's idea of adding jelly to the middle, and I think I will try this next time. Thank you for posting! They are great!
Sooo simple yet sooooo good! I decided to make a "test" batch and changed the measurements to make 15 (but then only make twelve BIG muffins). I then added a little reduced sugar strawberry jelly to most of them which took it to a whole new level! With or without the jelly, my friends, son and I couldn't get enough. I plan on making a few batches of it for his birthday party this weekend and make different flavors!
we saw this idea on the Food network- Best Thing I Ever Ate- snacks- they added cinnamon to the sugar to roll the muffins in, so we did too and coated the entire muffin with butter/cinnamon sugar- they were EXCELLENT!! though if you coat the entire muffin, you need about 6 tbs of butter. My DH LOVED them!
These muffins were amazing!!! I don't have donuts very often because they are so fattening. These muffins really have a donut taste w/out all the calories and fat. I used spray butter for the tops and dipped them in cinnamon sugar. Great with the egg casserole and fruit this morning.
