Mini Donut Muffins - #MuffinMonday

Donuts are not very popular in Jamaica. Occasionally, you'll see someone on the street selling a box of jelly filled donuts. And honestly, it's been a while since I've seen a donut man. Maybe I'm not paying attention though. Until I can get my Prestige jelly donut fix, I will just have to make my own in mini muffin form. 
was pleasantly surprised by how delicious these were. Dangerously delicious. I tasted one and when I looked at the plate, three were missing. Three? I swear I was only tasting one. I have always loved powdered sugar covered donut holes so I opted to use powdered sugar here. I actually glazed some and then added some sprinkles but as usual, my glaze just did not look right so I didn't take pics of that. It was delicious though - may or may not have used rum to make the glaze. Tis the season! Feel free to roll them in cinnamon sugar if that floats your boat. Dip in some melted butter first. Next time, I'll add some jelly and pretend they're from Prestige.

Mini Donut Muffins
Yield: 20 mini muffins

1 1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar  (I used light brown)
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk 
1/3 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar for coating


Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a mini muffin pan.
whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl whisk egg, milk, oil, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir gently until just combined. Scoop into the wells of the mini muffin pan. Aim for about 2/3 to 3/4 full. 

Bake 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool and then coat in powdered sugar. I added less than a cup of powdered sugar to a bag and tossed the muffins in one a time.
