Muffin Donuts = Duffins

The facebook posting has created a lot of interest, so I'm including the recipe for the muffin donuts or Duffins as my husband likes to call them.

1/2 c butter
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 cup ripe bananas (approx. 2 bananas)
1 tsp baking soda
1-1/2 c A/P flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
2 T hot water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place shelf on center level of oven.  Grease muffin cups.
Cream butter and sugar.
Peel ripe bananas and using a fork, mash.
Blend egg into butter mixture.  Mix in bananas.
In hot water, disolve soda.  Add to banana mixture.
Combine with flour, cinnamon and salt.  Stir until blended, mixture should be lumpy.  Do not over stir.
Spoon into muffin pans and bake for 15 to 20 minutes (depending upon your oven) until golden brown.  Do not overbake!

1/2 c Butter, melted
Cinnamon Sugar Blend

Remove muffins from pan and let cool enough to handle.  Working with one muffin at a time, while still warm, brush all sides of muffin with melted butter and immediately toss into cinnamon sugar mixture - coating all sides.  Best enjoyed the same day they are made!

Warning:  The recipe may not sound all that great.  I mean a muffin donut...really?!  But it is hard to eat just one.  So when you make them, plan to be out of the house for the rest of the afternoon and leave them behind - or before you know it, you will have eaten each and every one of them!  Consider yourself warned.
