Apple Muffins, aka Baked Apple Donuts

WE made these last week and Don and I really like them. They ARE a cross between a muffin and a donut!

Apple Muffins, aka Baked Apple Donuts


3 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. shortening
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. milk
2 c. finely diced apples


1/2 cup butter
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

Mix first 5 ingredients with a fork. Add shortening and mix until shortening is broken up. Set aside. In another bowl combine eggs, milk and diced apples. Add to dry ingredients just until blended. Spoon into greased muffin pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until muffins are light to medium brown. While donuts are baking, melt 1/2 cup butter. Set aside. Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. When donuts are done and before they have had a chance to cool, dip in butter and then in sugar.
