Lemon-Lime Mini Muffins

 

Today I am guest posting for Katie while she’s on a European cruise. Lucky girl! I love the vibrant citrus flavor of these muffins. And the lime sugar that coats them smells heavenly. Check out the complete recipe, and read about our adventures with the lime tree.

Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins

I’m a little behind the blogosphere when it comes to these muffins. I don’t know why I waited so long to try them. I love donuts. I love muffins. I mean, what’s not to love about either? These muffins are incredibly simple to make. Unadorned, they taste similar to a plain yeast donut, with that slight hint of nutmeg. Once they are rolled in the cinnamon sugar, they just melt in your mouth. I couldn’t eat just one. Luckily, I had help eating them, or I would’ve probably finished the entire dozen myself.

Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins

Ingredients

¾ c sugar
1 large egg
1 ½ c all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ c vegetable oil
¾ c milk
1 tsp vanilla
Coating
3 Tbs sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Lightly coat a muffin tin with non-stick spray. In a large bowl, beat together the sugar and egg until light in color. In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Pour dry mixture into the egg mixture and stir to combine. Add vegetable oil, milk, and vanilla, stirring until just combined.
  2. Divide batter evenly into muffin tin, filling each cup about 2/3 full. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes clean, about 15-18 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, then remove muffins from tin.
  3. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. While the muffins are still warm, roll each one in the mixture, coating all sides with the cinnamon sugar.
