Doughnut Muffins with Cinnamon Sugar

Spiced sugar doughnut-style muffins

I made these Doughnut-style muffins this morning to keep hungry family at bay for a little while. They are really good although incredibly sugary! You may feel the need to brush your teeth afterwards.

I used a recipe from ‘Baked in America‘ a great book if you like some American-inspired recipes.

The coating is really easy to do. Just dip the whole muffin or just the top in melted butter or vegan spread (I used Vitalite) and then coat liberally in a spiced sugar made from spices, e.g. allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg etc. and 50:50 granulated to brown sugar.

Also, just to balance out all the sugar, albeit it  before any contemplation of these muffins, I completed The Beast race (10k obstacle course) last weekend! The medal was pretty great although a little to similar to one that we made a few years ago…..!

It was great fun to do as a team if you ever fancy it!
