Raspberry Doughnut Muffins

For another very simple bake I have these lovely Raspberry Doughnut Muffins.

Also known as duffins doughnut muffins are a sort of cross between doughnuts and muffins.

Although doughnuts are usually fried these doughnut muffins are baked, as are muffins.

But they are filled, as is often the case with doughnuts, and they are rolled in sugar once baked. That gives them the familiar doughnut exterior.

Raspberry Doughnut Muffins

As you will know, doughnuts are usually a yeasted dough which is fried before being filed and coated in sugar.

Muffins, of course, are baked in the oven, as are these doughnut muffins. As such they are also very much quicker to make than doughnuts. So they are very good for those who would like a doughnut but don’t have the time to make them.

Muffin lovers like these as they so closely resemble those too.

Although I coated my raspberry doughnut muffins in a sugar mixed with speculaas spice other spices, such as cinnamon, can be used too. Indeed spice doesn’t need to be included at all for those who prefer as plain sugar coating.

Mine looked so good and they tasted great, with the combination of flavours, raspberry, vanilla and speculaas spice working so well together. In fact I will make them again very soon as I enjoyed them so much. I will also try with different fillings and coatings.

Doughnuts and muffins are just so good that I think you may enjoy some other recipes I have on the blog as detailed below.

Another recipe you might wish to try is Speculaas Doughnut Muffins. Or another doughnut recipe such as my Ring Doughnuts is very good indeed.

  1. Hi Geoff,
    These muffins are delicious! I added nutmeg to the batter and a pinch of cinnamon to the sugar topping. This recipe is a keeper! Only one problem. They don’t last long! Lol great with a cup of tea.
    Thank you, Judith 😊
