This quick and easy muffin recipe mimics a donut without the frying!
In a medium sized bowl, beat the softened butter, oil, and sugars until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla, and beat again until smooth.
Add the baking powder, soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and flour to the wet mixture in bowl. Fold together by hand using a large spatula or spoon.
Add the milk all at once and fold again by hand using spatula or spoon. Make sure all ingredients are combined. Do not over mix!
In a separate bowl, combine 3 tablespoons sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon.
Dip the top of the warm muffin into the melted butter, then the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Serve warm if possible!
-I used a blend of 1 1/3 cup cake and 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour to get a lighter muffin texture. You may use either type.
-Make sure to have the oven heated properly. Pre-heat while you are making the batter.
-This recipe could be altered to use a glaze as the topping, or drizzled chocolate. Or a sprinkle of powdered sugar and unsweetened cocoa. The possibilities are endless!
