Sugar Donut Muffins are a cross between a donut and a muffin and always a winner to add to a sweet party platter – so quick and easy to make too !
Coffee or Tea time ?? Make some of these Sugar Donut Muffins !
I pinned this quite some time ago and thought I would give them a try today. Another great recipe found and will definitely be made quite often.
Pins I love from the moment I see them, gets printed immediately and those are also the ones I refer to when I am stuck on deciding what to make.
Getting stuck on something to make could be a sweet treat, dinner or anything really in my case !
The printed recipes I keep in a file right next to me, so when it’s time to decide what to make for dinner or dessert, I first have a look at the file.
This is for the days when my little light in my head does not want to (or able to) switch on.
A couple of days ago, hubby and I, wanted something sweet, but not frosting kind of sweet, and it was already evening, so it had to be quick as well.
Out with my file – and we decided on this recipe, which we thoroughly enjoyed. These Sugar Donut Muffins are so good with a cup of coffee or tea.
So soft and fluffy on the inside, with a delightful crunch from the sugar coating. The Muffins are great on it’s own, but sliced open, with a pat of your favorite jam, and you have a sweet, sweet treat.
Which muffin pan size to use for making Sugar Donut Muffins?
Using a regular sized muffin pan, this recipe will yield about 6 muffins. But a small muffin pan will easily give you 12 two-bite sized treats.
Smaller is also so great, especially to add to a sweet party platter. And we do all know (and love!) a variety at a tea party will always be a hit.
I prefer a medium muffin pan (or silicone) which is just the perfect size and the recipe yields 8 medium muffins.
For me, the ease and speed of making these Sugar Donut Muffins is a huge bonus, as I am always thinking of making something (even dinner) at the last moment.
