December Baking

I christened the new Kitchen Aid mixer with donut muffins. They are a nostalgic treat for me. Filling the house with the smell of warm nutmeg and cinnamon.

Doughnut Muffins
12 oz unsalted butter, room temperature
1 3/4 c granulated sugar
4 large eggs
6 cups flour
1 tbs + 2 tsp baking powder
1/3 tsp salt
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1 2/3 cup milk
1/4 c buttermilk
for dipping cinnamon sugar, melted butter

cream the sugar and butter, and add eggs
sift the dry ingredients
combine the milk and buttermilk
alternately mix the dry and wet ingredients, ending with dry
mix until well combined but not overmixed
grease and flour a muffin tin
scoop batter into tin so batter is even with top
bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes until firm to the touch
when just cool enough to touch, dip top into melted butter and cinnamon sugar

Put on a pot of coffee and enjoy!

the muffins sound yummy! I've got several families that I do holiday baking for, so started earlier this week, still have several kinds of cookies to make, along with some fudge and some pumpkin cranberry pecan strusel if I can just keep the hubby out of them

The muffin recipe sounds wonderful & nostalgic. My mother used to make small drop nutmeg doughnuts which were sooo good. I'd like to make some of your muffins for a small group I meet with. How many muffins does this recipe make?
