Doughnut Muffins

Doughnut muffins are something I have made for years. With a crunchy topping and hidden gem of your favorite jelly or jam in the center, they are simply delightful.

In your mixing bowl, combine 3 1/2 cups of flour, 1 1/2 cup sugar, a tablespoon of baking powder, and a teaspoon each of salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir those together.

Spoon a tablespoon of batter into the bottom of each muffin cup. Spread it around to cover the bottom of the cup.

Grab your favorite jelly or jam – or maybe some apple butter – and spoon about a teaspoon into the center of each cup.

Scoop the rest of the batter into all of the cups, evenly.

Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes or until they test done with a toothpick. The muffins will not get very brown.

While the muffins are baking, place a half cup of melted butter in a bowl. In another bowl, combine 2/3 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon.

When the muffins are done baking, remove them to a rack. Allow them to cool just until you can handle them, but they should still be fairly hot.

Dip the muffin top into the melted butter, and then into the cinnamon sugar. Repeat with all, and cool.
