My Adventure In Soft Foods

As you know, I recently had a tooth pulled and was banished from the world of food.
No hard foods, nothing that can break into pieces and find its way into the cavity of the non-existent tooth, nothing spicy, etc...
To remedy this, I made something I knew I could eat: Muffins! Muffins that are like doughnuts!

Doughnut Muffins by How To: Simplify

Ingredients: For the muffins:
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
For the coating:
  • 1/4 -1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a muffin tin.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
  3. Combine oil, sugar, egg and milk in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients and stir only to combine.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. While muffins are baking, melt butter in a small bowl. In another small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Shake muffins out of the muffin tin while the muffins are still hot.
  6. Dip muffins in the melted butter and then into the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Place on a wire rack and allow to cool.

These muffins are delicious! They're a perfect soft food and they're great for a grab and go fall breakfast or snack.

They even got the BF seal of approval/make again now please!



  1. I've been unbelieving that doughnut muffins could be even close to as good as real doughnuts. Are they? Really?

  2. well

    so, yes!

  3. bah! i hate a soft food diet, but these are something i wouldn't have considered. they look delicious and must ease the pain considerably. :)
