Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 12 muffins
Ingredients
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter (separated into 1 T and 3 T), plus butter to grease muffin tins
  • 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 t cinnamon combined in a bowl
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Whisk together dry ingredients. Add egg, vanilla, and milk and whisk together until blended. Add 1 Tablespoon of butter and all the canola oil. Whisk until well combined.
  2. Grease muffin tin liberally with butter. Fill muffin tin with 2 tablespoons of batter per cup, dividing batter evenly. Bake for 7-10 minutes (mine were done around 9.5 minutes, took them out when a toothpick came out clean). Brush each donuffin liberally with the remaining 3 tablespoons of melted butter, immediately sprinkling with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  3. The first time I made these there was no salt in the batter, which I though it needed. So that first time I also sprinkled a bit of salt on top of the donuffins – everyone really liked that. Yet another genius use for salgar! Anyway, when I had added salt to the batter, I didn’t put salt on top. Just play around with it to your taste!
