Oven temperature: 375°F

These little puffs taste like cake doughnuts but are as easy to make as a batch of muffins. After baking, you roll them in melted butter and then in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon.

For 12 muffnuts you will need:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. each ground coriander and ground allspice, optional
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Tips: For variations, you can add 1/2 cup chopped nuts, raisins, dates or chocolate chips to the batter before filling muffin tins.

Preparation:

1. In large mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, coriander and allspice, if used, and the 1/2 cup sugar.

2. Cut in shortening until mixture is coarsely crumbly. Beat egg and milk. Pour over dry ingredients. Stir just until flour is moistened.

3. Fill greased muffin pans 1/2 to 2/3 full. Bake at 375°F for 25 to 30 min. or until lightly browned.

4. Meanwhile, melt 1/4 cup butter and place in small dish. Mix sugar and cinnamon.

5. Roll hot muffins in butter and then immediately serve in cinnamon-sugar. Serve hot.

    I have made these for years (since I have these recipes cards). I don’t us raisins or anything. They are always well received. Just like cinnamon sugar donuts!
