Sugar Doughnut Muffins

I found this recipe on Pinterest. We made them this morning (we had our ‘niece’ over and she was our taste tester…ha!) These were actually fantastic! Josh isn’t one for many sweets, but this made 24 mini muffins and between Josh and Tayelor, there are 3 muffins left (which are for me)…ha ha! I would say they went over well. 🙂 I hope you enjoy them…I know we sure did!
