Doughnut Muffins Recipe


  • Muffins
  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
  • 2 large eggs plus 1 egg yolk

  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. For Muffins whisk all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together the rest of the ingredients. Combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just moistened.
  4. Lightly spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray and divide the batter into the 12 cups.
  5. Bake on the middle rack of oven until muffins are light brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (About 20 minutes)Let muffins cool, until cool enough to handle.
  6. In a medium-size bowl whisk together the sugar and cinnamon. Melt the butter in a separate pan or bowl. Using a pastry brush coat the muffins generously with melted butter, and then roll them in the sugar until thoroughly coated. Place the muffins on a wire rack to cool.
