Donut Muffins are Divine!

I'm pretty sure I've shared this recipe before but I couldn't find it, I plan to post it on Instagram, and just in case someone asks for the recipe, it's right here.  This recipe is from All Recipes and has never disappointed since the first time I made them.  Today was the first time in ages that I've baked them, of course, after all that time they do taste divine!

Donut Muffins

1/2 cup white sugar

1/4 cup margarine, melted

3/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp. baking powder

1 cup flour

1/4 cup margarine, melted

1/2 cup white sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375.  Grease mini muffin cups, I was able to make 18 donut muffins,   I used a small cookie scoop.

Mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup margarine and nutmeg in bowl.  Stir in milk, then mix in the baking powder and flour until just combined.  Fill the greased muffin cups about half full.

Bake in preheated oven until the tops are lightly golden, 15-20 minutes - it was exactly 15 minutes for me.

While muffins are baking, place 1/4 cup of melted margarine in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix together 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon.  Remove muffins from their cups, dip each muffin in the melted margarine and then roll in the sugar cinnamon mixture.  

These are more like a mini donut hole than a muffin, they're really tasty, also easy and quick to make - give them a try!!

Naan Pizza - Easy and Tasty!

Homemade pizza is a great quick meal, but if you're like me, you don't always want to make your own crust.  So, I discovered Naan pizza - it's way better, in my mind, than buying a ready made crust.  And, so easy!!

I buy a 5 pack of Santosh Garlic Naan bread - one piece for each of us.  Preheat your oven to 350, sprinkle a few drops of water on your Naan, then place on the rack for 2 minutes.  Remove from the oven,  spread your sauce, and your toppings  - my standard toppings are turkey pepperoni, mushrooms, green pepper and mozzarella.  Return to your oven for 8 minutes - that's it, your pizza is ready to enjoy. Give it a try, I think you'll like it!!
