Sugar Donut Muffins

This is a classic recipe that I was just reminded of thanks to Baking Bites. I've tweaked it some to be more like what my mom made at home. Can't go wrong with the basic recipe though!

Sugar Donut Muffins
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking power
1/2 tsp salt
1/4-1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup milk (low fat is fine)
2 tsp vanilla extract/vanilla paste

1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar, for rolling (or cinnamon sugar)

Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a muffin tin with cooking spray or vegetable oil. (I used a mini muffin tin)
In a large bowl, beat together sugar and egg until light in color.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Pour into egg mixture and stir to combine. Pour in vegetable oil, milk and vanilla extract.
Divide batter evenly into 10 muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full.
Bake for 15-18 minutes (7-9 min for minis), until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

While muffins are baking, melt butter and pour remaining sugar into a small bowl.
When muffins are done, dunk tops of each into melted butter and roll in sugar. Cool on a wire rack.

Makes 10 muffins or about 30 mini-muffins.
