state fair mini-donut holes at home

Recipe can be found at King Arthur Flour. I made a half batch. Nutmeg gives it that Tom Thumb mini-donut taste. Judy used cardamom.

A half batch makes 19 mini-muffins. They rise up tall and bake quickly. 10 minutes at 425˚.

Then you brush them with "butta" (thanks Kris), then roll in cinnamon. 

Recipe says to brush top of muffin with butter...WRONG...brush entire muffin.

Double click on this photo to see the animation. 

No need to half the amount of cinnamon sugar either. MMMMMM.

Hurry, they sell out quickly.
