Muffins.. That Taste like Donuts

1 3/4 c (all purpose) flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/3 c vegetable (or canola oil)
3/4 c white granulated sugar
1 egg
3/4 c milk

Preheat to 350' F 
1. Combine dry ingredients in bowl. In a separate bowl, combine wet. 
2. Mix both together well and put into prepared muffin tins.
Bake for: 20-25 minutes
While muffins are getting baked, prepare the sugar topping.
Sugar topping ingredients:
1/4 c granulated sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c butter (melted)
(Place melted butter in a separate bowl from the cinnamon sugar combo)
Dip still warm muffin tops in butter and then swirl into cinnamon sugar.

The origianal recipe called for a whole melted stick of butter for some reason when i only used about 3 tbsp or something so keep that in mind before you melt an entire stick of butter.
(Insert Mean Girls quote here)
My muffins were done at 20 minutes just for reference. 
For the cinnamon sugar part, you can just use a couple shallow-ish bowls because it'll give you easier access when dipping.
Also, I used vegetable oil and not canola oil when making my muffins so I'm not sure what the canola oil would look like.
I used some pretty awesome cat themed cupcake wrappers too so that's pretty exciting. I wouldn't used the metal wrappers because they're not as nice looking.

Rating and Review: 4/5
They really do vaguely taste like donuts!
They're sort of like those donuts that you get at cider mills during the fall. 
So in other words, these could be enjoyed with some nice and hot apple cider or something.
