Muffins that taste like donuts

>> Saturday, September 24, 2011

If that isn't an attention grabbing title, I don't know what is!  Yummmm.....these are so good.

I found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman's website over a year ago.  I have made them 4 or 5 times since and they have turned out wonderful each time.  I tried a different recipe once and just wasn't satisfied with it.  These are just a perfect texture and taste.  They taste like one of the cinnamon and sugar donuts!  They aren't healthy, but they are baked so I'm assuming they are a little better for you than a regular donut :)

So, most recipes I tweak just a little.  Whether adding more or less of something or adding/omitting something all together.  But these, I make just as written.  The only variation I do on it is sometimes I dip the whole muffin in the butter and cinnamon sugar, but most of the time I just do the tops to save a few calories.  Either way is good!
