Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins

And who wouldn't want one of those???
These muffins are easy to make and delicious! They are like a cake doughnut, but more light and fluffy. Try it and you will see how good they are!
Cinnamon Doughnut Muffins
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
3/4 cup milk

1/4 cup, butter melted
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Add oil, egg, and milk to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Fill paper lined or greased muffin cups 3/4 full and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. They are ready when the tops are firm or you can stick a toothpick in and make sure it comes out clean. Melt butter in a small dish. Combine cinnamon and sugar in another small dish. Immediately after removing the muffins from the oven, dip the tops in the melted butter and then roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Serve while warm for best taste. Makes 12 muffins.
