Diamond's Surprise Muffins (Conni's Doughnut Muffins)

This is a home ec recipe Diamond got a couple years ago & I just love them! They come out wonderful every time! And they're super simple to make.

Diamond's Surprise Muffins
3 1/2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups milk
2/3 c vegetable
2 eggs
Your favorite Jelly or Jam or chocolate or Nutella, etc

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
2/3 c sugar or Splenda
2 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a larging mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar.
In another mixing bowl, beat milk, oil and eggs.
Pour milk mixture into flour mixture, and stir to combine.

Spoon 1 Tb batter into each cup of a paper-lined muffin pan.
Top with 1 tsp of your favorite jelly or jam.
Cover with batter, filling the cups about 3/4 full.
Bake 20-25 minutes or until test done with a toothpick.

While they are baking, melt butter and place in a small bowl.
Combine additional sugar and cinnamon in another small bowl.
When the muffins are done, carefully remove a hot muffin from the pan, and dip the top into the melted butter.
Then immediately dip it into the cinnamon sugar.
Repeat with all of the muffins.
Let the muffins cool a couple minutes.
Eat warm or room temperature.

Num Yummy!!

  2. Yep. Diamond has made it several times since you taught them the recipe in home ec. :)

  3. I love them. You mentioned Nutella. I never thought of that. I want to try it with Nutella next time. :)
