These delicious doughnut mini muffins taste like cinnamon sugar doughnut holes. The secret ingredient is nutmeg. What’s even better is that they are quick and easy to make.
Ingredients for Doughnut Mini Muffins:
I used the following ingredients: Melted unsalted butter, sugar, fresh nutmeg, baking powder, salt, flour, and ground cinnamon. What’s interesting here is that they don’t contain eggs.
I started by preheating the oven to 375° F. Then, I sprayed the mini muffin pan with Baker’s non-stick spray or some other non-stick spray.
Making the Doughnut Mini Muffins:
I started by adding the sugar and the nutmeg to melted butter in a mixing bowl. Then, I stirred in the milk, added the baking powder and salt, and finally added the flour. I whisked the ingredients just until everything was combined. You don’t want to over mix this because it activates the gluten and makes the muffins tough.
I used my small ice cream scoop (1½-inch diameter), to fill the mini muffin cups about half full.
I baked the mini muffins in a 375° F preheated oven for about 17 minutes. After 17 minutes, their tops were golden brown. While the mini muffins were baking, I melted the additional butter, and mixed together the remaining sugar and cinnamon.
I removed the mini muffins from the pan, and brushed each one with melted butter. Then, I rolled each one in the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
I allowed them to cool on a wire rack set over a large baking pan.
I ended up with 24 absolutely delicious Doughnut Mini Muffins. Yum!
