Doughnut muffin.... Mood = Simply the best!

Ok so doughnuts are probably up there on most peoples list of favourite desserts.... But doughnut muffins are probably the best creation EVER! I have been scouring recipes for delicious and different things and this one just caught my attention from a lovely blog that i follow religiously since i found it! Caffe Ina is written by Sara, who simply has wonderful recipes to follow and i hope you will all find it as fun and full of goodies like i do.

So now back to my short and sweet blog about the most wonderful idea. They are bouncy, flavourful and just so divine the description of them is just not going to give you a proper account of what they are truely like. I literally foudn the recipe about an hour ago and began making them. I made one substituion as i didnt have any milk, so i used buttermilk instead which worked a treat! I would use it again. I think it gives it a richer deeper flavour.

So here it is....


170g golden caster sugar
1 large egg
340 g all purpose flour
10g Baking powder
1 pinch salt
1 pinch of cinnamon
60ml vegetable oil
180ml buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract

large knob of butter melted
caster sugar with cinnamon mixed for dusting


  • Mix sugar and egg together till thick
  • Add flour, Baking powder, salt and cinnamon and mix in with the egg and sugar mix
  • Add the milk and oil and whisk.
  • Pour into ready greased muffin tray and bake at 190 for 15-18 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and dip in the melted sugar and then coat with the cinnamon caster sugar and serve. 

These little delicous treats are perfect hot or cold. They still have that moorish taste and for me, bring back so many memories purely from the smell. Nostalgia is simply one of the best things!

Enjoy and please have a look at Sara's blog!

Thanks for linking Joudie! Your pictures are! Beautiful...I can still taste the goodness of those donut muffins in my mouth. Great idea the sub of milk for buttermilk! Some of the comments suggested jam or nutella filings....i spent days drooling at the thought!
