Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Muffins



I made these muffins to take to work and share with the teachers on my grade level.  The recipe was suggested to me on my cooking board and I couldn’t wait to try them.  Apparently this recipe is on a few blogs but I was referred to and used the one on Baked Perfection. Risa added cinnamon the the batter which I thought was a good idea. These muffins were easy to make and baked up nicely.  They were done in about 13 minutes.  I am not entirely sure why they are called doughnut muffins but I kept the original title of the recipe. 🙂

Laura Rebecca’s Kitchen


2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
4 tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla

1/2 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 400-degrees F. Line a standard muffin pan with paper cups.

Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, yogurt, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Add flour mixture and mix with light strokes until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Do not overmix; batter will not be smooth.

Divide batter among the muffin cups and bake until a toothpick inserted in one or two of the muffins come out clean, 12-15 minutes.

While the muffins are baking, melt 1/2 stick butter and place in a bowl just large enough to hold a muffin. Combine ½ cup of sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon in a small, shallow bowl. As soon as the muffing are done, dip them one at a time in the melted butter and then roll in the sugar mixture. Set on a rack to cool.

Yields 12 standard muffins.

  1. Ooo yum! These sound delicious. My mom used to make something similar growing up but her recipes used TONS of butter- I like that these seem a bit ‘healthier’ 🙂
