Pumpkin Donut MuffinsPosted by in Food
I’ve seen a few recipes for donut muffins, but have never actually made any. I saw this one in Nov Everyday Food and the pumpkin part drew me in, so I decided to make them. This was super easy. Just mix it all up in a bowl, bake in muffin tins and then roll in melted butter and cinnamon/sugar. They were really tasty and smelled great while they were baking. The family gave this a thumbs up all the way. You need to eat them with a fork though, because they’re kind of crumbly.
10 tbsp butter
3 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 1/4 pumpkin puree
3/4 cup brown sugar
for sugar coating:
3/4 c sugar
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c butter
Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour a muffin tin. Whisk dry ingredients together in one bowl. Whisk buttermilk and pumpkin in another. In yet another bowl, mix butter and brown sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Add flour in 3 additions, alternating with the pumpkin mix.
Put 1/3 c batter in each muffin cup and bake until a toothpick comes out clean, 30 min.
Mix sugar and cinnamon. and melt butter. Let muffins cool 10 min then roll in butter then cinnamon sugar.
Now, you know me, I did this all in one bowl. I have no patience for Martha’s methods. I also used a little less nutmeg and allspice and added some cinnamon into the batter itself.
I ended up with more than 12 – I think I had about 18 of these. I would definitely make this again. All the yumminess of a donut with the ease of a muffin.
