    These are very good. Easy to make. I added the cinnamon to the batter, it was a nice touch. They were kinda like a muffin, and kinda like a coffee cake. We will be making these again!

    Sorry, these were good but not 5 star worthy. They were good but nothing special. But they were easy and ok, so I give them 3 stars.

    Lovely little muffins. Soft on the inside, yummy sugar & cinnamon on outside. I made them with breakfast and they were easy to make and baked in 15 minutes (by my oven). Try them!

    These are so quick and easy to make. My nutmeg and I seem to have parted company but I used apple pie spice instead. There's nutmeg in it, so... Used my crown muffin pan and got 6 wonderful muffins. The taste kept tickling at my mind -- they remind me of the cruller type twist donuts at Dunkin Donuts. Very nice!

    Was disappointed in the taste. We didn't think that they tasted like doughnuts at all. Wish I had added the cinnamon/sugar to the batter as MizzNezz had done. I sprinkled some cinn./sugar on the bottom of the muffin cups, put in the dough, then instead of the cinn/sugar sprinkled on top like the directions stated, I made the strusel topping that I usually put on apple pie (which is made with flour, sugar, and butter). We liked the topping and picked it off and ate it, but no one ate the muffins after the first bite. Maybe my nutmeg is old and has lost it's flavor??
