Delectable Tuesday Blog Hop 4/5 - Donut Muffins

Yummy! Is it time for breakfast yet?

I love muffins! I love everything about them. Even better is the fact that they are really easy and don't take that long. What could be better than that?

Enjoy!


Donut Muffins

1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup milk

Topping:

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter

In a mixing bowl cream together the shortening and sugar. Add the egg and mix until it is smooth. Measure the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg into the bowl. Pour in the milk. Mix the batter until it is smooth. Drop the mixture into 12 oiled muffin cups. Make sure not to over fill the muffin cups, 1/2 to 2/3 full is full enough. Bake the muffins at 350* for 25 minutes, or until the muffins are brown on top. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool slightly.

Mix the powdered sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.

Take the muffins out of the pan. When they are cool enough to handle, dip the tops of the muffins into the melted margarine. Then dip them into the powdered sugar/cinnamon mixture. Arrange the prepared muffins on a large plate and serve while still warm. Makes a dozen.
