Donut Muffins

Donut Muffins
This post has been sitting in my files for over a year.   I posted a coffee cake that is incredibly donut like a couple of years ago (with no photo…working on that one, too).  It is still a favorite.  These are like tiny handheld versions.  They are always a hit with my sugar loving crew.  The nutmeg gives them a definite donut flavor.
On a completely different note, I have a question for you.  How much preamble do you like to read before you get to the recipe?  It seems like sometimes I drone on and on and other times I have a quick paragraph like the one above.  I have noticed that I have retreated a bit back into the recipes versus sharing things about my real life.   Sorry.  I have 6 weeks before I move to Jacksonville.  My husband is in San Fransisco until next week, when he heads to Florida to find us a place to live (I know, we are cutting it close).  School ends on the 26th; next week.  My calendar is filled with end of the year activities..and doctor appointments.  I had to get all 5 kids in for physicals so that they can transfer to FL schools.  Right after Memorial Day, my oldest two boys go on to a church camp for 4 days.  The next Monday, my oldest heads off to a summer school program at a local college until the Friday before we move.  The last week in June my younger 3 boys will be at Boy Scout camp.  I don’t know if I can fit anymore in. 😉
