Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins

Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins-the softness of a donut in the shape of a muffin, covered with cinnamon sugar.

What you need:

Yield: 36 mini muffins or 12 full size muffins


  • 2 cups all-purpose White Lily flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • topping
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, egg, melted butter and vanilla.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir just until mix and no large lumps remain. Small lumps are ok. Batter will be runny.
  4. Fill well greased muffin cups to 2/3 full. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven. For mini muffins bake 12-14 minutes, for full size muffins, bake 15-17 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let rest in pan for 5 minutes then remove to racks to cool. If needed, use a plastic knife and run it around the sides of the muffins to loosen.
  6. Once cooled, combine sugar and cinnamon topping. Dip tops of muffins in the melted butter than roll the top in the cinnamon sugar to coat. Place back on rack and repeat with remaining muffins.


These muffins freeze well. If freezing, freeze before adding topping.

Enjoy your muffins!
