Sugar Donut Muffins – Quicker Than Going Out and Buying Donuts!

sugar-donut-muffins-on-plate

I have a confession to make. Before I do, please promise me that you won’t shun me. Are you ready?

My children eat cold cereal for breakfast every morning. No, I mean EVERY morning. And they aren’t eating the healthy shredded wheat crap either. They eat the Lucky Charms and Frosted Flakes and Sugar Filled Sugar Lumps kind of cereal.

Go ahead, say it with me: Bad mom!

I can’t help it. They like instat oatmeal, but it has more sugar than most of the cereal they eat. They like bacon but that’s not exactly a health food. They love fruit, but not for breakfast. They won’t eat eggs unless they’re in cookie batter.

I’m pretty much okay with it, but sometimes I want to eat breakfast myself and I really don’t do cereal. I like cinnamon rolls and french toast and chocolate donuts and, wait a minute! I think I see where they learned their poor breakfast habits!

Let’s just move on from my bad examples and I’ll show you the sugar donut muffins I baked up for breakfast the other day. You’re gonna love these. They taste just like a cake donut, but they are baked in muffin tins. After they bake you pop them out of the muffin tin, dunk ’em in melted butter and then roll ’em around in a cinnamon and sugar mixture. They were so delicious warm, but the next morning? They were like little bites of heaven. The butter had really soaked in and the flavor was much more pronounced. Oh my. You’re really going to need to try these, both because they are delicious and because they are ridiculously simple.
