cinn heaven

now i’m not really a baker. i have more of a savory tooth than a sweet one…

but when i saw this recipe, i knew i was gonna be baking soon… and soon turned into today!

these ingredients are so cheap and accessible. most came out of my kitchen cabinets!

i digress… i’ll tell you why it’s cinn heaven…. my kitchen smells amazing! the cinnamon wafting from the oven smells like christmas! my roommate came downstairs drooling!

i found this recipe on Tasty Kitchen through the Pioneer Woman (my idol). she recommended them, so i figured they’d be delicious. but to be honest, the name of the recipe was what won me over: muffins that taste like donuts.


muffins that taste like donuts.


  • 1-¾ cup flour
  • 1-½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ⅓ cups oil
  • ¾ cups white Sugar
  • 1 whole egg
  • ¾ cups milk
  • ¼ cups butter
  • ⅓ cups white sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon


pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.

combine oil, sugar, egg and milk.

add dry ingredients and stir only to combine.

bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

meanwhile, melt the butter in a bowl. combine the white sugar with the cinnamon in another bowl.

shake muffins out while still hot. dip muffins in butter, then into the sugar/cinnamon mix. let cool.
