    These are great donutty muffins. I didn't have nutmeg on hand so I used Chinese Five Spice Powder, and instead of vegetable oil I used olive oil. They came out great, slightly sweet and spiced muffins that to me taste like exotic donuts. I used a quarter the butter, and instead of dipping them I spooned on the butter, which worked just as well. Next time, and considering how easy they are to make there will be a next time, I will make double the batter and fill all twelve muffin cups a little fuller. This time I managed to eek out ten but they seem small to me, not mini just small. My new favorite muffin recipe, but I might try adding a little vanilla next time as well.

    Just okay for us - didn't take like a cake donut as other reviewers experienced.

    My family loves these! I fill the muffin tins fuller than what the recipe recommends, so I only get eight instead of twelve muffins. Consequently, I only use half the melted butter and cinnamon sugar called for.

    These are so easy to make AND delicious, and I usually have everything on hand. My 5-year-old LOVES these, and so do I and my husband. Great for quick breakfasts or desserts. I don't think it matters that they are not donut-shaped, they taste great in muffin form. Thanks for the recipe!

    Great as is. Made in donut shaped cooking pans. We've tried several baked donut recipes. This is great hot.
