Doughnut Muffins

Today is National Doughnut Day. I have a confession to make, I forgot, until the news came on and let me know. I then knew I had to make doughnuts. I washed the dishes, by hand. Usually I have a daydream while washing the dishes that one day I won’t know what to do with all the time I’ll have when I have a dishwasher.

I wanted to make doughnuts but didn’t want a calorie buster so I turned to Chocolate Covered Katie for something healthier and came up with these.

First start out with some flour, milk, and an egg. I have another confession, Katie says to mix all the dry and wet ingredients separately, I did not do that. I combined them at the beginning. I know what you’re thinking, you live on the edge and you’re right I do.

Add a little sugar to the mix.

Some vanilla.

Sea Salt, that’s why it looks dirty. I promise I don’t use dirty salt.

I used regular canola oil in mine, I know not that healthy but they’re doughnuts they can’t be all healthy.

Baking powder.

Mix it all together. Katie said that you could form the doughnuts with your hands so that’s what I planned on doing. Then I mixed it all together and realized . . .

There was no way I could mold that with my hands.

I turned to the muffin pan and used that. If you have a doughnut form pan, you rock and I recommend using that. If you don’t have one, you can settle for a muffin pan. I’m telling you, living on the edge.

Katie used a banana glaze for her doughnuts. Bananas will not come near these doughnut muffins, I turned to the poor man’s frosting for the glaze. What’s the poor man’s frosting? Milk and powered sugar. That’s it.

I couldn’t handle waiting any longer and took a bite. These are the best doughnut muffin’s I’ve ever had. Cake like I have to admit.

I had to add some sprinkles just for National Doughnut Day.
