Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins with Cinnamon-Sugar

            

               Well, its October and so I wanted to make something……PUMPKIN!!! I couldnt decide and so I kept looking up recipes. My recipe is inspired by Brown Eyed Baker , but I changed quite a few things. These came out WONDERFUL and they are suuper cuutee!!! It is also easier than it looks and it makes your whole house smell soo good. They are also not too small but not too big, and they are perfect as a snack or dessert. This recipe reminds you of the beauty Autumn brings and you will love it. It makes me want to sit next to a warm fireplace, while eating these muffins, and reading a book.

Yield-12 standard-sized muffins

3 cups of all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons of butter
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 1/4-1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1 1/4-1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice
3/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
1 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree
1/3 cup of milk (I used 1% milk)
3/4 cup of light brown sugar
1/4 cup of dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Cinnamon-Sugar-
3 1/2 tablespoons of melted butter
3/4 cup of white sugar
3 teaspoons of cinnamon

1. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, mix together the butter and sugars.

2. Add in the pumpkin puree and eggs until the mixture is creamy.

3. Next, add in the milk, vanilla, and dry ingredients into the bowl until the mixture is creamy like the picture above.

4. Finally, use a rubber spatula and mix the batter together to mix any ingredients that weren’t incorporated.
 

5. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

6. Butter and flour the muffin tins.

7. Divide the batter evenly (1/3 of a cup) into the muffin cups.

8. Bake the muffins for 24 minutes (or untill you can insert a toothpick in them and it comes out clean).

 

9. Once the muffins have finished baking, place them onto a cooling rack.

10. Let the muffins cool for 5-10 minutes.

While the muffins are cooling, make the Cinnamon- Sugar mixture:

11. In a deep bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar.

12. In a small bowl, melt the 3 1/2 tablespoons of butter.

13. Brush the melted butter all over the muffins and dip them into the Cinnamon-Sugar bowl untill the muffins are coated by the Cinnamon-Sugar.

14. Once you have finished coating the muffins, E-N-J-O-Y!!!!!! :))))
