Doughnut Muffins


I'm not sure where exactly we got this recipe from...my recipe card says my mother-in-law, but both my husband and myself think it came from my sister in law. Either way it is so absolutely ridiculously delicious! They take a little more effort than your typical muffin, but they take much less effort than a doughnut. And they are so worth it!


INGREDIENTS

24 tablespoons(3 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 3/4 cups sugar
4 eggs
6 cups flour
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoons nutmeg
1 2/3 cups milk
1/4 cup buttermilk

16 tablespoon(2 sticks) butter
2 cups sugar
2 tablespoon cinnamon

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour muffin tins

2. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, one at a time until just mixed in.

3. Stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.

4. Combine milk and buttermilk with a wooden spoon. Mix 1/4 dry ingredients into butter mixture. next, mix in 1/3 milk mixture. Continue alternating wet and dry, ending with dry. Do not overmix.

5. Add 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup dough into each muffin cup. Bake 30-35 minutes.

6. Melt 16 tablespoons butter. In separate bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. When muffins are just cool enough to handle, remove from tin, dip in butter(the whole muffin) and roll in cinnamon and sugar.


*If you're not going to eat/serve them all(it makes a lot), freeze them before you dip in butter and sugar. Then, when you're ready to serve again, thaw, microwave, and coat in butter, then cinnamon and sugar mixture. They'll taste just as fresh as the day you cooked them!

*I've also seen these made in muffin cups and just the top is coated in the butter and cinnamon/sugar. This would make for much less mess, but in my opionion, much less yumminess. It would be a good solution if you're in a hurry.

Can you bring me some?! Those look delicious, but I am so NOT in the mood to cook or bake. That will go on my list to make when I'm ready.

I was going to say its from my Mom, but Megan beat me to it! She made them for a homecoming or farewell or something. They are VERY good.

How much baking soda is needed? I was just re-reading the recipe and realized it's not listed in the ingredients, but is in the actual recipe instructions :)
