I started out the Valentine's Day menu with these delights to tide us over and prepare for a large supper. These were easy and quick but lacked the donut taste I was looking for. They were very good, so don't get me wrong, but I think that because they are baked they lacked that extra goodness.
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup super fine sugar or powdered sugar
Lightly grease a muffin tin with vegetable spray
Combine sugar and egg until light in color. Add vegetable oil, milk and vanilla to sugar mixture.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Pour into liquid mixture and stir.
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full and bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool in muffin pan for 10 minutes or so and remove from pan. Dab tops of muffins with butter and roll in sugar.
