Sugar Doughnuts Muffins Mix

I love making breakfast for my family in the morning, right before they get up for the day. Early morning is my favorite time of day (Bet you'd never thought I'd be saying that did you, Mom?). I like to get up early, preferably before everyone else, or with the baby if he gets up early too. It gives me a chance to clean up and do my mom chores that are best done by myself without both kids hanging off my legs. Right before the rest of the family gets up for the day I prepare breakfast for everyone so it's ready by the time they get to the kitchen. It's just another way for us to have family time together, around the breakfast table.

So of course I like to make fun things for breakfast and try out new recipes once in a while for something different. My husband usually likes an Egg Sandwich for breakfast made with English Muffin Bread, but when I feel like he should have a little sweet treat I mix up a batch of these Sugar Doughnuts Muffins as well.

I keep this recipe as a mix in my pantry so it's super easy for me to make in the morning when I get up. These don't take very long to bake either, so it's a quick addition to breakfast.

Sugar Doughnuts Muffins Mix Recipe

What You Need:

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/2 cup Sugar

Mix all 4 ingredients together in a large bowl. I haven't yet tried gluten free flour with this recipe, but since the muffins have eggs in them it will most likely work.

Pour the Sugar Doughnuts Muffin Mix in a jar, place a lid on the jar, and store in your pantry or in a dark cool cupboard until ready to make.

When you are ready to make your muffins you will need:

  • 1 jar Sugar Doughnuts Muffin Mix
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Butter, softened
  • 1 cup Milk

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl until everything is combined and well blended (no lumps!). Grease or line a muffin pan and drop the batter into the liners with a muffin scoop.  Sprinkle with sugar before baking.

Bake the muffins at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out of the center of a muffin clean.

For an even easier breakfast, you can always make this entire recipe and freeze the baked muffins. Then you can simply pull them out of the freezer whenever you need them! Serve warm.

These look wonderful. I love cinnamon sugar donuts. So, I’m thinking I’d add cinnamon to the recipe and for the topping. I bet a brown sugar cinnamon mixture on top would be great for a treat or guests.

These sound wonderful. I will have to try these out on my kids. I like to freeze the raw muffin batter and then pull them out of the freezer and right into the oven for nice hot muffins in the morning. It makes portion control easier too since I only bake exactly enough for breakfast. No second helping temptations!

I was so excited to make these for my family as a treat. I followed your recipe exactly’ except for adding 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to the batter and sprinkling with cinnamon sugar instead of plain sugar. When they came out of the oven they smelled wonderful! Unfortunately, they tasted very bland. Perhaps this is a great recipe for add ins? But this recipe alone pretty much tasted like nothing.
