This recipe uses a Baby Cakes Cake Pop Maker . But you can also make this using a muffin tin, just skip the mixer part. Check the recipe HERE for the Donut Muffins.
Though this recipe uses the cake pop maker, these small yummies are very easy to make. What I love about it is that you can make the mix ahead of time..and I’m all about saving time in the kitchen. They are awesome with a cup of Joe, anytime of the day!
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg ( or cinnamon)
1/2 cup milk ( can use low fat milk)
6 tbsp butter, melted
Cinnamon sugar: 3/4 cups sugar , 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Beat the sugar and shortening, until light and fluffy. Beat in egg.
Stir the flour together, baking powder, salt and nutmeg or cinnamon. Alternately blend in the flour mixture and milk into the shortening mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
Fill each cooking reservoir with about 1 tbsp of the batter. Bake 4 to 5 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Make the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Roll the puffs into the melted butter and then to the cinnamon sugar.
Best when serve warm but these puffs keeps really good for later serving!
