Ever since I found this recipe, my kids have been going crazy for these Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut muffins! They love them! They ask me to make them every week. They are the one muffin that we never have leftovers of. We even love making them into mini muffins. For some reason, miniature things taste even better!

Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Muffins

Slightly adapted from here


  • 1 cup white flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray. Combine flours, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, and sugar in a large bowl. Add in oil, egg, and milk and mix just until combined. Fill muffin tin with batter. Bake for 20 minutes or until done.

After they have cooled just slightly (enough so you don’t burn your hands when you touch them), combine cinnamon and sugar for the topping and set aside. Then melt butter. Dip the tops of each muffin first in the melted butter and then in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Then enjoy! They are delicious!
