Maybe I ought not to have put the word “bombs” in my blog title. Who knows what that will bring to my blog via the Search Engines. I don’t think I want to know. But the title is appropriate, because these things are the bomb! The original recipe came from Tasty Kitchen, but I first saw the photo of it on Pinterest. (Pinterest – now sucking up even more time that I don’t have, but OH so fun. Sigh.)
Interesting to note – these bake up like cake donuts on the inside. The recipe says to dunk them in butter and roll them in cinnamon/sugar after baking. Well, that sounded like a bit much to me. I figured I’d bake them in cupcake liners, then brush butter on the top and sprinkle it with a dusting of cinnamon/sugar. Healthier, right? The problem with that is that the cake part is pretty bland and a light dusting of cinnamon/sugar didn’t cut it. So I said “the heck with it”, dunked them good, and rolled them in the cinnamon/sugar mix like they told me to. The result? Ohmyword good. Perfect. Some things you just don’t fight. Or “fix”.
1 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 cup oil
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tbl. cinnamon
Combine oil, 3/4 cup sugar, egg and milk. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Divide into 12 well-greased muffin tins. Bake at 350 for 10 – 12 minutes. (Note: I had to bake mine for 20 minutes. Not sure why.)
While hot, dip in melted butter and roll in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Let cool. Enjoy!
Now, on to the zillion other recipes I’ve pinned in Pinterest. Are you on Pinterest? Stay away from it if you can help it. Stay very very far away.
What did you decide to knit for Camp Loopy’s Project Two? Next Friday can’t get here soon enough, so that we can start in on our projects! I am knitting All The Water mittens (which we have now sold out of at Loopy, so pop over and get it from Kirsten if you’d like it) out of Three Irish Girls Glenhaven Cashmerino Worsted (in Cara – the light blue color that matches my Winter’s Rhythm Capelet). I did finish my Project One Pamuya and it’s drying and blocking. I’ll show you that next week. Have a great weekend!
