Snickerdoodle Donut Muffins

I have the BEST recipe to share today!!!  SNICKERDOODLE DONUT MUFFINS!!!



I came across an awesome Donut Muffins recipe on allrecipes.com and was so excited when I read the ingredients, NO EGGS!  {Click here for the recipe}. My youngest with the egg allergy has never had a donut....ever.  That is just so wrong.  So to say that I was thrilled stumbling on this recipe is an understatement!  

This afternoon, I was planing on making Snickerdoodles for my husband, they were his absolute favorite cookie as a kid and I've only made them a few times in our 18 years together.  The problem is, they have eggs and my little one can't eat them.  Boo.   

I love to experiment with food and and started thinking about the Donut Muffins recipe...what if I made Snickerdoodle Donut Muffins?!  I did a quick Google search for Snickerdoodle donuts and muffins - again, not a novel idea, others had already thought of this delicious concoction.   The problem I came across, all the Snickerdoodle donut and muffin recipes called for eggs.  So I decided to try to come up with my own, using the recipe from allrecipes.com and my Snickerdoodles recipe as a guide.   

End result...I made the BEST Snickerdoodle Donut Muffins on my first try! They are so easy to make!  My family went NUTS over them, so did the neighborhood kids!   My little one can't wait for me to make them again - she loves these DONUTS!  That makes my heart happy!   Oh, and my husband downed six of them with a cold glass of milk.  I think they are a yummy substitute for his childhood favorite.  

Next time I make these, I plan on doubling the recipe!

Print Recipe 

Ingredients
  • 3/4 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Butter (melted)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 Cup Milk (skim, 1%, 2%, whole)
  • 1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • Pinch of Ground Nutmeg 
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon Cream of Tartar (optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
.......................................................................................................................
For dipping your donut muffins, prepare the following:

In a small bowl,
  • Melt 1/2 cup butter
In a small bowl mix,
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon 
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F.  Spray mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.  In a large bowl, mix melted butter, sugar and vanilla - mix until smooth. Next pour milk over mixture, set aside, do not mix.  In a medium size bowl, mix the remaining dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, cinnamon, cream of tartar and nutmeg).  Pour your dry ingredients over the butter/sugar/vanilla/milk mixture -and mix until just blended.  Using a spoon or a scooper (I use a medium size Pampered Chef scooper), fill each muffin 3/4 full.   Place in oven on middle rack and bake 18-20 minutes, until lightly golden brown.  Remove from oven.  Take each donut muffin, and while they are still warm (not too hot), dip them completely in melted butter and roll them in cinnamon sugar mixture. Place on wax paper to cool.  Enjoy them warm or cold with a glass of milk! 

TIPS - If you don't care for nutmeg, just replace it with an additional 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.  Also, the original recipe does not call for Cream of Tartar or Vanilla, so if you don't have them in your pantry  no worries, just skip them, they will still be delicious.  You can head over to ALLRECIPES.COM for the original version for Donut Muffins!  


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Cheers!

  12. Thanks for sharing this recipe. We are huge fans of snickerdoodles. Can I clarify? You're using a standard cupcake tin or a mini one? I was thinking maybe Medium pamperedchef scoop would be too big for a Mini pan?

  36. Hi Mary,

    I have an intolerance to chicken whites and have made the switch to duck eggs. Don't have a reaction to them. I love
    Snickerdoodles and will be trying this gluten free as I am gluten intolerant as well. Thanks for the recipe.

  38. I just made these and they are awesome and kid approved. My youngest has an egg and dairy allergy so I used a vegan butter and almond milk and they still came out really good. Thanks for sharing.

  48. Can't wait to try! Keep up the good work of egg avoidance. Our 2nd child just outgrew this allergy in April. It took a long hard almost 7 years. But it was so worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  49. These are delicious!
    Though mine didn't rise much, despite all that baking powder and cream of tartar.

    A question about butter: is it supposed to be half a cup when melted or solid?

    ReplyDelete
  50. hello! i was craving something sweet and looked up a simple muffin recipe and found this. i had all the ingredients-ish so i gave it a shot. i used self-rising flour because i did not have all-purpose. with that i did not use the baking powder or cream of tartar. did use the nutmeg. mine rose just fine- actually could have put less batter in :/ the only thing was despite me spraying the pan- they stuck! so that made it difficult when coating in the cinnamon sugar. however, my husband and i could care less if they are falling apart and look crazy. they are delicious!!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I made these this morning and they were perfection my daughter loved them too I upped the nutmeg cuz that's just how we roll here and only baked mine for 12 minutes butter side from that delicious thank you for sharing
