Muffnuts, the latest baking sensation!

Moody Monday? Cheer yourself up baking something nice!

Last week, Deb's posted a delicious recipe on her On Cupcake Moon blog (recipe day is Monday, so it's always a good way to start the week!) that I really wanted to try, Muffnuts!

What are muffnuts, you may ask? Well, they're the love child of muffins and donuts, of course!

Deb's recipe is a version of the recipe that the amazing Lex from SmarmyClothes posted on her blog, so if you want to make it, you can choose any of either recipe, or even better, try both!:

Deb's Glazed MuffNuts!

Smarmy's Cinnamon Sugar MuffNuts!

I went for Deb's recipe, but I had to improvise a bit, cause I was all out of vanilla extract (it's with my mum, in the cottage), so I decided to add a lil bit of cinnamon, just for taste. And I decided to not glaze them, since I wasn't making them properly.

They came out pretty well, taste wise, they're REALLY yummy, but a bit more muffin than donut... I think probably cause of the lack of vanilla extract...

And looks wise... I think I poured too much batter on each, so they did poof up a bit too much, and got stuck to the baking pan on the sides... lesson learnt for next time!

All in all, they're really yummy, and I want to try to bake them again! And also, try Lex's version too!


  1. Oh my gosh...I MUST simply make these!! They look absolutely delish!

  2. Yummm! And I love your step-by-setp photos too.

  3. They look wonderful! Can I have a bite? I don't have the baking gene in me or I would try to bake them myself. Me and kitchens don't get along. Your step-by-step photo instructions are wonderful.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and your sweet comments.

  4. I need to make those! They look and sound amazing! Would definitely add the cinnamon - LOVE cinnamon!

  5. muffnut mondays! LOL

    thank you for trying another of my recipes!! when you get a chance to make them with the glaze they will definitely be more towards the donut. and make sure to do lynn's ingenious idea of the hole in the middle and pouring glaze in - a wooden spoon handle is perfect! =)


¡Muchas gracias por vuestros comentarios, leerlos me alegra el día!/ Thanks a lot for all your comments, reading them brightens my day!!
