    Annala's Note:

    My sister and I used to make these when we were kids. I rediscovered the recipe a few months ago in the bottom of a drawer at my mom's and made them for my husband, who now asks for them regularly to have with his tea in the evening or his coffee in the morning. They are a cross between muffins and sugar donuts. Now I have to double this recipe every time I make them because they disappear so fast!

      OK so this morning I was craving donuts sooooo badly that I came on here to look for a recipe. I came across this one and decided to make it seeing as how I don't have a donut tin or anything and am I glad I chose this one! It's perfect! They are so moist and the nutmeg makes everything come together!!! I can't wait to share this with everyone I know!!! Perfect with coffee or tea for sure!! Thanks for sharing this!!!

      This recipe was perfect! I was looking for a breakfast treat that was quick, easy and different (not a typical muffin or pastry) and this hit the spot. Thanks for sharing!
