Mini Cinnamon Sugar Doughnut Muffin ~ 迷你肉桂多拿满福

This is something new to me again, baked doughnut muffin. A friend gave me a recipe book which is about how to baked doughnuts but have always delaying to give it a go.. =p
Thanks to Bake Along event i have the chance to bake this to join the event :D

Thanks to Lena for her converted version recipe. I am very confused when using cups and spoons..:p but hers is in grams and milis..:D
This doughnut muffin is quite nice to eat. It has a crunch crust, soft and cakey inside when it is hot from the oven. After cool, coat it with cinnamon sugar. It is not overly sweet as the doughnut itself is not sweet. My youngest love it very much..he is always my dear supporter..^_^ ..

通常看到的多拿滋都是炸的, 比较油腻..可是香又好吃!!
但是这个烤多拿滋也很不错哦! 口感比较蛋糕式和柔软.

 Bake Along event is a group of bakers who make the same recipes to share and to have fun together :D If you are interested to join please get the details here.

I am submitting this to Free and Easy Bake-Along event hosted by JoyceLena and Zoe.

The one here is with coated cinnamon sugar and the back one is without coating.

Recipe ( from the book, Back in the Day Bakery )
makes 24 mini muffins (i make 22 mini muffins)

Ingredients:187 gm all purpose flour (i used cake flour)
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 tsp baking powder

¼ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg (i did not add)
¼ teaspoons Ground Cardamom Or Ground Cinnamon (i did not add)
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1 tbsp buttermilk ( i used 1 tbsp full cream milk + 1 tsp lemon juice )
110 ml whole milk/full cream milk
56 gm unsalted butter, softened
60 gm sugar
1 large egg

For doughnut coating
56 gm unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar mixed with 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon


  • Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat oven to 177C. (i set mine to 180C and bake for 23 minutes) Grease and flour the muffin pans
  • Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt . In a medium bowl, combine the milk and the buttermilk or yogurt.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter for 2-3 mins using a handheld mixer on medium speed. Reduce to low and gradually add in the sugar. Continue to mix until mixture lighten in colour. Add the egg, beating until  just combined. Add the dry ingredients in 3 batches, flour, milk and flour mixing just until smooth , do not overmix.
  • Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tray, filling approx 2/3 . Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the tops are firm and lightly golden. While the muffins are baking, prepare the melted butter in one bowl and the cinnamon sugar in another bowl. Let the doughnut cool completely on a wire rack, dunk them in the melted butter, then coat them with cinnamon sugar. 
** a little tips: I add sugar and cinnamon into a small plastic container, shake them to combine well. Add in a dunk doughnut muffin into plastic container and shake well to let the sugar cinnamon coat well on the doughnut muffins. Coat 1-2 doughnuts at a time to have nice and neat coating.

  3. Hi Doreen,

    Your youngest boy is so sweet being your most faithful supporter. If my boy don't support me, my face will be black black :p

    I always have my standard cup to gram conversion straight in my mind and apologize that I didn't include them in my recipe. Unless I made dramatic changes, I would rather readers see the recipe as it is published in the book. Very nice petite doughnuts!


    1. Zoe,
      No worries! I am quite blur when comes to cup to grams .. Hehe

  4. cute muffins..I like it plain with no sugar coating ^.^

  5. I like your cute mini muffins, your method of coating sugar seems to work very well!

  6. Mui Mui, lovely muffins you have. I should use castor sugar instead of icing sugar.. Just coincidence out of stock, so used icing sugar.

  15. morning doreen, dont mention on the converted recipe. I have actually reduced the amount of sugar for the batter, that's why it's not sweet on its own :) and as i was telling mich, the cinnamon sugar had given the donuts a delicious coating! thanks so much for baking again with us! appreciate that and have a good coming weekend!
