  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray or line with paper cups.
  2. Place flour, sugar, milk, vegetable oil, egg, baking powder, salt, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, and 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon in a bowl. Mix dough by hand until well combined but some lumps remain. Fill muffin tin with dough.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, but color is not yet golden brown, about 15 minutes.
  4. Pour melted butter into a bowl. Mix 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon nutmeg together in a separate bowl. Dip muffins in the butter coating; immediately roll in the cinnamon dusting.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:

i had to look twice at this recipe as it is very similar if not identical to my fav Donut Muffins on this site. will make these to see how they compare! :) https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/2146...

great recipe had to put the butter on with a pastry brush and then sprinkle cinnamon mix on top cooling time may be a factor - 4 mins plus?

DIdn't actually make this recipe but it looks a lot like what our family enjoys on special occasions but those are called "Aebelskivers." You can find it on All Recipes here: https://www.allrec...

Not good??

I followed instructions & thought they were one of the best recipes ever. I will make them again & again & again.

The muffins taste very good but they look like muffins, and not holes. I made it in a mini muffin pan and filled them rather full. I shall definitely make these again for company.

Easy. Followed directly. Turned out great!
