Mini pumpkin donut muffins are baked and then coated in a cinnamon-sugar mixture – tastes just like a doughnut!
So, I set out to make homemade baked donuts and ended up with cinnamon sugar mini pumpkin donut MUFFINS. It’s a long story, but it turns out you can’t make donut holes in a mini muffin pan because they just don’t hold their circular shape. What a “DUH!” moment that was. Hey, you live and you learn! I guess next time if I really want donuts I’ll have to fry them, which I was trying to avoid (I have a deep-frying phobia). I was, however, ecstatic that I was at least able to salvage them by turning them into these mini “donut” muffins and not a single crumb had to go to waste. Then I really couldn’t decide if they were more like a donut hole or a mini muffin, so I’m calling them donut muffins. I hope I didn’t confuse you too much…
These mini muffins that taste like cinnamon sugar donuts look delicious enough to fulfill my childhood love for all things dangerous and fried, but are done in a much healthier form. You really can’t beat that. Happy Monday and happy donut muffin baking!
