Donut Hole Muffins

I’ve wanted to make these for awhile now.  They look so delicious and sounded so simple.  And seriously?  How could a muffin rolled in cinnamon and sugar not be delicious?!  Not possible.
Donut Hole Muffins
2 tablespoons oil
 1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup milk
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3-4 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350. 
Mix oil and sugar; beat in egg. Add vanilla and milk, and stir until combined.
Mix flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add to wet ingredients and stir gently, just until combined. (a few lumps should remain).
Fill muffin tins 2/3 full with batter. DO NOT use muffin liners.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Combine sugar and cinnamon. Dip each muffin into the melted butter and then roll in the cinnamon sugar.
Serve warm!
This is a perfect addition to a Sunday morning brunch.  They are sweet from the cinnamon and sugar but not too sweet.  The muffins are not a cake so they aren’t sweet.  It’s perfect.
Fun, easy, delicious!
