There are fewer ingredients in life that go together better than cake, cinnamon and sugar.  And these Cake Doughnut Muffins are basically these 3 ingredients…and they’re delicious.  And don’t they just sound so warm and squishy?!  Cake.  Doughnut.  Muffin.  My 3 favourite things all in one recipe.  Life is good.

Cake Doughnut Muffins

This is a great recipe for those days when you need something to snack on or something for the kids lunches, because almost everyone likes them.  And they’re easy to make with simple ingredients you likely have in your pantry already.   In fact they’re so easy, you should have your kids make them, they’re a great beginner baking recipe.

Cake Doughnut Muffins

My kids have finally reached that age where they are big helpers in the kitchen.  They’re old enough to complete a recipe from beginning to end without much involvement from me.  At first I actually found it kind of hard to have them take over in the kitchen, but I have learned to embrace and really appreciate it.  If they want to bake cookies or make lunch, I’m all for it.  Their contribution to our family in ways like this are invaluable.  It takes a lot of pressure off of me, and provides great learning for them.  I love it.  My daughter has turned into quite the baker…she’s made some cookies that rival mine for sure!  Love that.

    Loved this recipe, thank you!

    I subbed 5 Tbs. MILA and water for the Oil and they were still light, fluffy, sugary and oh-so-edible at our after school picnic.
