Doughnut Muffins

Things have sure changed around our house.  My hubby has been travelling a lot, which has been a really hard adjustment for me.  That's part of the reason I haven't had many recipes to share- cooking for one is SO HARD.  While my hubby was gone- I found myself sitting in my most ugly ripped stained worn comfy sweatpants (I know you all have some)  & watching The Housewives of Beverly Hills & The Rachel Zoe Project off the DVR (never, ever would I think about watching Bravo when my hubby is around- he says it gives him a headache.)  After many hours of watching t.v. & stalking Pinterest...I decided I should make these muffins.  I'm glad I did- I ate them for breakfast all week!  They were good & warm & fall-ish.

For the muffins:
1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
3/4 cup milk

For the coating:
1/4-1/2 cup butter; melted
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon cimmamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees & grease a muffin tin. 
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg & cinnamon in a medium bowl.  Combine oil, sugar, egg & milk in a large bowl.  Add dry ingredients & stir to combine.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.  While muffins are baking, melt butter in a small bowl.  In another bowl, combine the sugar & cinnamon.  Shake muffins out of the muffin tin while the muffins are still hot.  Dip muffins in the melted butter & then into the sugar & cinnamon mixture.  Place on a wire rack & allow to cool.

I couldn't help it :)
