I have a simliar recipe, it calls for 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg along with the cinnamon. Also, I dot with butter then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar prior to baking. My whole family LOVES them. They are a nice change from fatty doughnuts. Read More

I made these without the topping and they were a bit dry and boring. They tasted more like a cupcake but without icing! Still they got eaten quickly enough! Read More

These are a great alternative to doughnuts. They are just as good and not as fattening. Great to bring along to a play group or morning get together with friends. Read More

I made this recipe with some kids that I were babysitting. They enjoyed helping me to make it... and they loved how it taste. This muffin is almost addicting it's so good! I was amazed that it actually does taste like a donut! Since my mom won't let us make donuts we can make this muffin instead! Read More
