Make This Now - Donuffins!

To cap off the events of American Education Week, a mom from Kara's class offered to host a parent coffee today. Perfect excuse to bake, right?

Tasty Kitchen is the recipe sharing site attached to the Pioneer Woman website. It is great place to find recipes, especially in the realms of comfort food and baked goods. I was perusing my "recipe box" and found a recipe called "Muffins that Taste Like Donuts." Seemed like the perfect parent coffee offering.

Thanks, Lemanada, for this recipe and pretty picture, too.
The basic idea is that you bake a muffin and when they are cooked, you dip them in butter and coat them with cinnamon sugar. Kara, Dave and I tested them out and determined that they rock. The only complaint: "Muffins that taste like donuts" is a little unwieldy as names go. Dave suggested "Donuffins" - I think that one's going to stick. (And since this is a family friendly blog, I wont share the other contenders for new name.)

These things are awesome. Make them now.

PS: These were so good, that made a pumpkin muffin version. Just add about 1 cup of pumpkin puree and reduce the milk.

PPS: If you make these as mini-muffins, they are pretty much like munchkins.
