French Breakfast Puffs (Doughnut Muffins)

This is a family favorite! Originally in a 1970s copy of my mother's Betty Crocker cookbook. Not sure how true to the original recipe we are at this point in the game. I keep the mixing to a one bowl deal.

We have found we like these delectables in the mini-muffin size.  Easy to pop in your mouth or devour in 2-3 bites.

I took pix the last time I made these... the full recipe follows without picture interruptions. Don't worry -- all these pix to do a recipe will not be the "norm" I may illustrate SOME steps --- I was just having some camera fun this time.

You may (or may not) notice my nails look bad in some of these - I painted over them in Pixelmator b/c my actual nail polish was horribly chipped.

Let's get things going: Preheat to 350˚

Spray muffin tin then wipe excess w/paper towel around to evenly coat

In bowl: 1 3/4 C Flour
add 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder

add 1/2 tsp Salt
add 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
add 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
add 1/3 cup Canola or Veggie Oil
add 3/4 cups Granulated Sugar
add 1 Egg (don't worry Kitty was just smelling then left))
add 3/4 cup Milk (whole, 2%, 1%, skim, try whatever you like - we use whole or 2%)
Mix with spoon - will be a light toasty color
Pour batter into baggie
Cut off a corner of baggie

Baggie now works as piping bag - easier to fill tin
Place in oven for about 15 mins for mini muffin tin up to 20 mins for reg muffin size
Mix up a sugar mixture of: Granulated Sugar, Cinnamon and Nutmeg (I mix until I like the color - don't over do the nutmeg)
Melt some butter
Out of the oven - immediately pop out with...
a plastic spoon (don't want to scratch your tins) If you used enough spray oil they fall out
Set up assembly line: out of tin, into butter, into sugar mixture, coated product
Roll 'em butter

Roll 'em in sugar mixture (after a while you'll be tempted to lick your fingers clean - be sure you're alone!!! LOL)
Ta-dah! Yummy!!!!
