Tonight I tried rolling the donut in powdered sugar, and it was off the charts good. The cinnamon and sugar coating tastes like a churro donut and you get a good texture from the sugar crystals (Lana you will love this).
Make this for breakfast this year on Easter morning, YOUR FAMILY WILL, (as my 4 year old son Cameron likes to say when something is good) "DIE OUT".
DO NOT OVERCOOK these babies, keep a close eye on them as oven temps vary.
1/3 c shortening
1 c sugar
1/2 c milk
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg (a must)
6 tbs butter, melted
powdered sugar (1 cup or so)
cinnamon and sugar mixture (1/2 cup or so)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine sugar and shortening, add egg. Mix until creamy. Add milk, combine well. Add flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Stir until dough comes together. Spray a 12 muffin tin with cooking spray. Divide dough evenly among 12 muffin tins. Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until tops are just set. Tops of the muffins should still be white.
Remove each muffin one at a time, dip into melted butter, and then coat with cinnamon and sugar or powdered sugar. Let cool on a cooling rack. (Makes 12 muffins)
