I drove by a doughnut shop the other day and since haven't been restraining myself from going in and "treating" myself. Okay, being gluttonous. This is my compromise. Make these, bring them into work to share, thus limiting myself. Yes, this is self control people!
3/4 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup milk
Cinnamon and sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line muffin tins.
Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and soda, and salt. Add the eggs, beating after each one. Alternatively add the milk and flour mixture to the egg mixture.
Fill muffin tins about three quarters full. Bake for about 20 minutes until lightly golden.
Remove the muffins from the tins onto a cooling rack. Brush with the melted butter and then sprinkle with the cinnamon and sugar.
