Doughnut Muffins

Here is a recipe I found in an old cookbook, they have the taste and consistency of doughnuts, and they are baked. These were topped with cinnamon sugar, but I think they would also taste good, if you dipped the tops into a little glaze (if you like them sweeter).

Doughnut Muffins

3 1/2 (half) cups sifted all purpose flour

1 tbsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

1/2 (half) tsp. nutmeg

1 1/2 (half) cups sugar

2 egg

2/3 (2 thirds) cup shortening

1 1/2 (half) cups milk

2 tsp. vanilla

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and sugar in a bowl. In another bowl beat eggs, shortening, milk and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and stir just enough to moisten. Spray muffin tins with a non-stick spray, fill 2/3 (2 thirds) full, and bake at 350*F for 15 - 20 minutes, or till done. Depending on your oven, and size of muffin tin (if you make them larger), you might have to adjust the time.
