  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 teaspoon of baking yeast
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour


  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 24 mini muffin cups to prevent sticking.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together 1/2 cup sugar, melted butter, and ground nutmeg until well combined.
  3. Stir in milk, then add baking yeast and flour gradually, mixing until the batter is smooth and fully incorporated.
  4. Fill each prepared mini muffin cup halfway with the batter.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the muffins are lightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. While the muffins are baking, prepare the topping. Place melted butter in one bowl and mix together sugar and ground cinnamon in another bowl.
  7. Once the muffins are baked, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes.
  8. Remove the muffins from their molds, dip them in the melted butter, and then roll them in the sugar-cinnamon mixture until evenly coated.
  9. Let the muffins cool completely before serving.


  1. Can I use margarine instead of butter? Yes, you can substitute margarine for butter in this recipe.
  2. Can I use instant yeast instead of baking yeast? Yes, instant yeast can be used as a substitute for baking yeast. However, adjust the quantity accordingly.
  3. Can I use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour? While it may alter the texture slightly, you can experiment with using whole wheat flour for a healthier option.
  4. How should I store the leftover muffins? Store the muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or freeze them for longer storage.
  5. Can I make these muffins ahead of time? Yes, you can prepare the batter and store it in the refrigerator overnight. Bake them in the morning for a fresh batch of muffins.
  6. Can I omit the nutmeg from the recipe? While nutmeg adds a distinct flavor, you can omit it if you prefer or substitute it with another spice like cinnamon or cardamom.
  7. Can I make regular-sized muffins instead of mini muffins? Yes, you can adjust the baking time and fill regular-sized muffin cups with the batter to make larger muffins.
  8. Can I add toppings like chocolate chips or nuts? Absolutely! Feel free to customize your muffins with toppings of your choice for added texture and flavor.


  1. Ensure all ingredients are at room temperature before mixing to ensure even incorporation and better texture.
  2. Do not overmix the batter to avoid tough muffins; mix until just combined.
  3. Use a small spoon or scoop to fill the muffin cups evenly for uniform-sized muffins.
  4. For an extra indulgent treat, drizzle melted chocolate over the cooled muffins before serving.

Enjoy these delightful donut muffins as a delicious treat that combines the best of both muffin and donut worlds!
