Nice coffeetime snack - Cinnamon muffin doughnuts with apple sauce filling.

Recommended Posts

I love these, but I'm not allowed to make them that often, as I will eat all of them. Especially when warm. Dropped a batch off at Hasbean on Thursday as I was in the area, and had another batch made at home, not any more though. ;)


I know I can't really call them Duffins as that's Bea's thing... so Muffnuts? Perhaps not... ;)


Makes 8-10


225g Plain flour

1.5 Teaspoons Baking powder

1/2 Teaspoon Table salt

1/4 Teaspoon Ground nutmeg

1 Teaspoon Ground cinnamon

150g Sugar

75g Vegetable oil

1 egg Lightly beaten

170g Milk

1 jar apple sauce


In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon; whisk to combine.


In another bowl, combine sugar, oil, egg, and milk.


Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. You can leave it a little lumpy or you can whisk the hell out of it.


Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups half-full


Place one teaspoon of apple of sauce on top.


Cover with enough batter to fill muffin cups three-fourths full.


Bake at 350°F or 180°C degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.


Leave them to cool for a couple of minutes while you make the glaze for the top.


125g icing sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 to 2 tablespoons of milk


Mix all together in a bowl using the bare minimum of milk you can to get the glaze spreadable and apply while they are still warm. If it's too runny it won't set properly.


Next is the most important step.

Photo, I need a photo! These sound amazing!!


Can't do a photo... None left. :D


May make some more this week.




Scratch that - other half had one left from the few she took to work.

Not the best glaze, it was a bit runny. Still tastes good though. :D

Going to bump this.


Tried something that a chef friend recommended.

Got myself a small round ice cube tray and froze the apple sauce in it overnight. Then plonked a frozen blob in the middle of the batter when filling the muffin cases. Worked pretty well. Still a small air bubble, but no where near as bad as putting in just the apple sauce.
