Sugar Donut Muffins
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking power
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg i used a mixture of sugar, cinnamon and a little it of butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil next time I will use applesauce
3/4 cup milk (low fat is fine) soy milk was used
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp butter, melted i used I can't believe it not butter spray
1/2 cup sugar, for rolling
Preheat oven to 350F.
Lightly grease a muffin tin with cooking spray or vegetable oil.
In a large bowl, beat together sugar and egg until light in color.In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Pour into egg mixture and stir to combine. Pour in vegetable oil, milk and vanilla extract.Divide batter evenly into 10 muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full.Bake for 15-18 minutes, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
While muffins are baking, melt butter and pour remaining sugar into a small bowl.When muffins are done, lightly brush the top of each with some melted butter, remove from the pan and roll in sugar. Cool on a wire rack.
Makes 10 muffins.
