    We are taking off, down to Niagara Falls and Buffalo for the weekend. I wanted to bring some snacks for munchies. I was wandering, can I take any muffin recipe and bake mini muffins? :confused3 My favourite recipe is "Muffins that taste like donuts"

    I don't know if "any muffin recipe" works well, but I've done it will most of mine without any trouble. You just need to shorten the baking time.

    Hi Disney Ontario
    I bet you have a similar recipe to my favorite--"taste like doughnuts" muffins.
    We call them French muffins. Do you dip them in butter after baking then roll them in cinnamon & sugar? I have made them many times in a mini muffin pan and they are terrific--just bake for a shorter time. They look like doughnut holes.
    Deb :thumbsup2

    I would be happy to share--this recipe makes 15 reg. muffins or about 3 doz. minis
    French Breakfast Muffins
    1/3 cup shortening
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour or cake flour
    1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. nutmeg

    1/2 cup sugar mixed with 1 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 cup melted butter

    Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 15 medium muffin cups or mini-muffin tins.
    You may have to bake in batches. Mix thoroughly shortening, 1/2 cup sugar and the egg. Stir in flour, b. powder, salt and nutmeg alternately with the milk. Do not overmix.
    Fill tins 2/3 full. Bake reg. muffins for 20-25 min. mini muffins approx. 10-12 min. Immediately after baking, remove from tins and dip into melted butter and roll in sugar/ cinnamon mixture. Serve warm.
    These are so terrific because they are so easy to whip up in the morning--and no deep fat frying. They are made of ingredients most of us keep on hand. Enjoy!

    What about just making donut holes? :teeth:
    Get a can of Pillsbury Grand biscuits. Cut them in quarters. Drop in oil, fry to golden brown. Quickly roll in sugar, or cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar while still hot & wet. Yum!
