Project Description

My kids both have childhood favorites that they have always loved, this one is a fav for my son.  I know making these muffins for him will always put a smile on His face!  He even recently learned how to make them himself, but he did admit they taste way better when mom makes them.  I love the smell of these muffins baking in the oven.  The whole house is filled with the most amazing aroma.  These muffins are great for company, great to take on the go, you can even make a batch and freeze some.

They remind me of a fresh-baked cake donut like I used to get from the bakery when I was a kid.
