i call them donut muffins

So, I saw this pin yesterday, went to the blog, and could not wait to make these little yummies; it was the video that got me. :) Watch and it will catch you too... and mysteriously force you to the kitchen to whip these little devils up. 

I followed the recipe exactly, except, (and there is always an "except" when I use a recipe.) I used a little less sugar and dipped only the tops in the sugar and cinnamon. I do not like my sweets too sweet and using less sugar works for me. 

I was out of ground cinnamon and had to grate it and the nutmeg with a hand grater - (Explaining the large specks of cinnamon and nutmeg.)

 And now...the joy of eating these and enjoying a cup latte. What better way to spend a few minutes of your day than this!? Is there a better one?

Earlier today I pleaded with a beautiful butterfly to stay long enough for me to get a decent picture. :)

Hi Laura, Thanks so much for the visit! They are a delicious treat - and very easy to make.

Willow, I really do have to stop looking at cooking blogs. I put most of these in the freezer, hope they taste as good after thawing. But no way can I eat them up before they go bad. Thanks so much for your visit, sweetie. I hope nature and your furry and feathery friends are nurturing your spirit. xoxo
