Sugie Muffin

I have been wanting to make a simple “donut muffin” for a while and whipped up a batch, but was a little disappointed when it only turned out 8 muffins and I only had whole wheat flour so they turned out a little more dense than I anticipated.  Also I think this recipe would have benefited from a mixer to beat the batter but unfortunately I do not have the resources.

  • 1/3 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1 large beaten egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used almond)
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (I used whole wheat but would prefer AP)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Topping: 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mix melted butter, egg, vanilla, and milk together.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients together.
  4. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix together. Mixture will be thick. Don’t OVER mix!
  5. Add batter to muffin pan (I prefer lined with cupcake liners) filling each half way.
  6. Bake until edges are golden brown, 20-25 minutes. (mine took 20 minutes)
  7. In another bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon together and set aside.
  8. When the muffins are done, remove them from the oven and let cool 1-2 minutes (or until cool enough to handle). Roll top in butter then cinnamon sugar mixture.

9In a microwave safe bowl, melt 1/2 cup butter in the microwave (20 seconds).

10Dip tops of each muffin into the melted butter and then into the cinnamon sugar mixture.
