Donut Muffins (adapted from the Hillbilly Housewife)
- 1/3 cup shortening (I used butter because I didn’t have any shortening)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 medium egg
- 1-1/2 cups flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup melted margarine
In a mixing bowl , mix together the shortening and sugar.
Add the egg and mix until it is smooth.
Add the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg into the bowl. Pour in the milk.
Mix the batter until it is smooth.
Drop the mixture into a greased muffin tin.
Make sure not to over fill the muffin cups, 1/2 to 2/3 full is full enough. Bake the muffins at 350ï¿½ for 25 minutes, or until the muffins are brown on top. Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool slightly.
Mix the powdered sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
Take the muffins out of the pan. When they are cool enough to handle, dip the tops of the muffins into the melted margarine. Then dip them into the powdered sugar/cinnamon mixture. Arrange the prepared muffins on a large plate and serve while still warm. Makes a dozen. Very good for breakfast and after school or midnight snacks.
To reheat, microwave for about 15 seconds on power level 8.
