Cake Donut Style Muffins

I've been craving my all-time favorite quick bread that is much like a popular brand pound cake with a delicious sugar/cinnamon topping. However, when I went in search of my recipe I came across a couple for cake donuts - which I love - and then this one for a cake donut like muffin. It's all I can think of! So of course I had to post it here - easy for me to put the laptop next to me on the counter while I whip them up this afternoon.

Cake Donut Style Muffins

1 3/4 c flour
1 1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t ground nutmeg
1/3 c vegetable oil
3/4 c white sugar
1 egg
3/4 c milk

Mix separate;
3/4 c white sugar
1 t ground cinnamon

Have set aside;
1/2 c butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease 12 muffin cups. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, beat together oil, the 3/4 cup sugar, egg and milk. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture, just until moistened. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Mix the topping of sugar and cinnamon. When the muffins are done, let them cool a bit, dip in melted butter and then dip in the sugar cinnamon mixture. Yum!Print Friendly and PDF
