Why I Love This Recipe

This is a recipe I found years ago. If you like cinnamon sugar doughnuts, these are great! If you like simple and easy, you can always make cinnamon sugar doughnuts from a can of Pillsbury Biscuits and a doughnut cutter.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/2 cup flour
11 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
6 T butter, melted


Lightly grease 12 muffin cups (or use cupcake liners). Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg; set aside. With a mixer, cream together 1/2 cup sugar, shortening, and egg. Add the flour mixture and milk, alternately to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.

Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake in 350° oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Remove the muffins from the pan and immediately dip in melted butter or margarine, then in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Serve warm.
