"I?ve seen many different versions of sugar donut muffins on many blogs over the last few months and I?ve been wanting to make them for awhile. I?ve resisted because It?s rare that I serve donuts for breakfast. But when my sons had a sleepover, I thought it called for a special breakfast and these delightfully sweet muffins were a perfect fit. I?m sure these muffins are much healthier for you than a deep fried donut. I used whole wheat pastry flour and add grated apple to boast the nutrition a bit. I made a double batch and they baked up light and fluffy, but had that wonderful cinnamon sugar coating that reminds you of the simple pleasure of eating a fresh, hot sugar coated donut."
