Taste & Create - Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins

Taste & Create is a great blogging event hosted by Nicole over at For the Love of Food. The idea is that you are teamed up with a fellow blogger and you each make something from each other's blog. I have seen posts popping up in the blogosphere for ages, but I always seem to miss the deadline for registering. So frustrating. Finally, I got my act together and here I am.

My partner for the event was Laura Rebecca over at Laura Rebecca's Kitchen. It took me ages to decide what to make, she has so many great recipes. I thought about old fashioned apple cake, cardamom chocolate chunk cookies, spicy ginger cake.

Then I saw these - Cinnamon Sugar Donut Muffins - and it was all over red rover.


I was so excited to try them. I like donuts, but I rarely eat them as I avoid fried foods as much as possible. A baked substitute would be perfect. As if this wasn't enough, Laura Rebecca's A+ rating and very funny post completely sold the deal.

And am I glad, because these are FANTASTIC!!! I loved them. They really do taste like donuts. Like really, they do!! They disappeared so fast, I wondered if the whole thing had been a dream.

Laura Rebecca's recipe can be found here. Next time I make them I might use a smidge less baking powder. That's all I can suggest. Just bake, eat and enjoy.

These remind me of the sugar/cinnamon mini doughnuts we get at the fall fair...I guess we can sometimes find them at the farmer's market these days as well :D I have bookmarked them and will give them a try!!

Hi KJ,

This sounds so good! I don't eat fried foods too, not because I don't like them, but only because I think I shouldn't have them. So to hear you say that these tastes like fried donuts makes me want to try them too.

have a good weekend,
Nora

Hi Nora, thanks. Me too on the fried food. It's a guilt thing.
