Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins

So last week I made those Raspberry Donut Muffins and I really wanted to make them again for breakfast this past weekend.  But I didn’t have any more raspberries.

I remembered seeing in the inspiration recipe that instead of the fruit glaze you could just use butter to top the muffins so I gave that a try this time.  They were yummy!  I’m honestly kinda torn between which ones I  like better.

    Jaime, These look soooo good! Once the weather cools down, I would love to try making my own donut muffins.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Toodles,

    We do love our muffins around here! Your recipe looked super familiar so I looked it up and low and behold it’s the same recipe I’ve been using for 20 years from the Muffin Mania cookbook! Muffins That Taste Like Donuts – my kids love them! The only difference is that you sneak a little bit of jam in the middles before you bake them – and I never tell the kids what kind of jam I’m using so it’s a fun surprise (and a great way to use up dribs and drabs of jam). I’m so glad you’ve shared this recipe with your readers – they are truly yummy, easy and pretty much fail-safe!

      I would probably start at the low end of the time, around 15-18 minutes & then just watch them for when they are done. I would assume they wouldn’t take much longer than baking a regular cupcake which is typically around 15-20 minutes 🙂
