Sweet Spice Baked Doughnut Muffins


Sweet Spice Baked Doughnut Muffins



I love donuts.  Really, who doesn’t?! But, I do not love standing at the stove –  frying batch after batch first thing in the morning ! This recipe is a nice alternative to traditional donuts, Sweet Spice Baked Doughnut Muffins are easy to make and better for you since they aren’t fried.  I drizzled mine with cinnamon glaze – you can sprinkle them with powdered sugar or even cinnamon sugar!


Sweet Spice Baked Doughnut Muffins

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup sugar

1 egg

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Cinnamon glaze – 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon (more if you like it) cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and enough milk or cream to make desired consistency.

Cream butter, sugar and egg together until light and fluffy.  Sift together flour, salt, baking powder and nutmeg.  Add alternately with milk to creamed mixture.  Mix well (dough will be stiff).  Stir in nuts.  Drop from tablespoon into well-greased mini-muffin tins.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.  Drizzle with glaze.  Best served hot.


The total cost to make this recipe is $.90 and it makes 12 – 18 mini donut muffins.  Much cheaper than purchasing mini-muffins at the store!  I also think this recipe would be fantastic as lemon doughnut muffins – replace nutmeg with lemon zest (1 teaspoon) and make a lemon glaze.  Yummy!

  2. Can’t wait to try these. Think I might try the lemon ones first because I’m out of cinnamon!
    Sorry to hear you’ve had a loss in the family, but I hope you all manage to have fun for your daughter’s third birthday. My youngest daughter is nearly three, it’s such a cute age.

    • It’s a very cute age – she’s learning so many new things! Her birthday gave us a nice break from everything – watching her excitement was just what we needed!
