In my opinion, nothing is better than a steaming cup of coffee and a jelly doughnut and in Los Angeles there are literally doughnut shops calling my name on every corner. Many of whom I am certain pipe out the smells of deep fried goodness onto the street just to tempt me. So I needed to develop my own doughnut fix so that each time I pass these shops I can relish in my own contentment instead of drool in envy. IN walks the jelly doughnut muffin, a simple muffin, filled with delicious jelly and dipped in butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Perfect any morning with a cup of strong coffee.

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the both flours, salt, nutmeg, and baking powder. Mix together removing any clumps. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, Splenda sugar belnd, buttermilk, vanilla, and applesauce. Slowly stir the wet and dry ingredients together until mixed. Try not to overmix or the cake will become tough.
  3. Scoop one spoonful of the muffin mix into a muffin tin that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Then place 1 tsp of the jelly in the center of the batter. Cover another spoonful of additional batter.
  4. Make for 15-18 minutes. Let cool.
  5. Once the muffins have cooled remove them from the muffin tin. Melt 1 tbsp of butter in a small dish. Mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together on a small plate.
  6. Dip each muffin top into the butter and then roll into the brown sugar and cinnamon. Enjoy!
