Bake-Along # 47 : Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnut Muffins

I'm not a fan of doughnuts as I find them overload with sugar and frosting especially those fanciful ones. hehehe So till now I've yet to attempt any fried doughnuts recipe! But I do not mind baked doughnut with minimal frosting which is  friendlier to my waistline ^.^  This cake like texture doughnut is so irresistible as I really like the cinnamon-sugar coating, can't help popping them into my mouth! ^.^

After baking it just looks like normal little muffins...see how it transforms after coating with cinnamon sugar!

with modifications

  • 180gm plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 100ml + 1/2 tbsp soy milk
  • 1 tbsp plain yoghurt
  • 60gm unsalted butter
  • 60gm sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • handful of raisins
For Coating :
  • 100gm butter, melted
  • 100gm sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon

  1. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.
  2. Combine milk and yoghurt.
  3. With a electric whisk, cream butter and sugar until light. Add in egg and beat till combined.
  4. Sift the flour mixture over the creamed butter, alternate with the milk mixture, mixing just until smooth. Do not over mix.

You have added raisins! What a lovely idea! Glad that you love these little doughnut muffins! I never did like the ones with heavy frosting too, preferring simple ones like this.
Thank you for baking along with us!

Hi Peng,

I remember eating sugared donuts on skewers when I was young. Always remember those good old days.
