Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnut Muffins and Little Meat Loaves

I'm linking up with Aimee over at AJcrazies for her linky party . . .

Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnut Muffins

I made a few things this week.  First I made Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnut Muffins.  I made a double batch.  One thing I would suggest is that if you make a double batch, for the melted butter only do how much it says for the single batch because I had about half of it left over and what are you supposed to do with that?  I also had a little bit of cinnamon sugar left over but that just went into the cinnamon sugar thing.

Here's the recipe:
  • 1-3/4 cup Flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup Oil
  • 3/4 cup White Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • 1/4 cup Butter (4 Tablespoons)
  • 1/3 cup White Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°
Combine, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg, and set aside.  Mix oil, sugar, egg and milk, then added dry ingredients, mix just until blended.
For regular size muffins: (this is what I made) - spray muffin pans with no-stick cooking spray and fill each cup 1/2 full.  Bake for 15-20 min. Yields 8-12 muffins
For mini muffins: - spray mini muffin pans with no-stick cooking spray and fill each cup 1/2 full. Bake for 10-12 min. Yields 18 mini muffins.
While muffins are baking melt butter in one bowl.  Mix 1/3 cup White Sugar and 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon in another bowl.

Remove muffins from oven, let cool for just a minute or two, remove from pan and place them on a platter.  Dip each muffin in the melted butter then roll in cinnamon and sugar.
Let cool or serve warm.

I liked them and everyone else seemed to . . . they were gone within one day:) 

I also made Little Meatloaf.  We had it with baked potatoes, corn, and beans.

Here's the recipe for that:
1 egg
3/4 cup milk 
1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese 
1/2 c. quick-cooking oats 
1 Tbsp. minced onion, or 1/4 c. chopped raw onion 
1 tsp. salt 
1 lb. lean hamburger 
2/3 c. ketchup 
1/4 c. packed brown sugar 
1 1/2 tsp. prepared mustard

In a bowl, beat egg and milk.  Stir in cheese, oats, onion and salt.  Add hamburger and mix well. Shape into 8 loaves; place in a greased 9 X 13 inch baking dish.  Combine ketchup, brown sugar and mustard; spoon over loaves.  Bake, uncovered, at 350* for 45 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and meat thermometer reads 160*.  Yield: 8 servings.

These are always a big enough hit:)  I like them a lot.
