Dirt Bombs

The compromise between Eric wanting pancakes and me wanting a muffin on Saturday morning. Cake for breakfast! These are excellent. They taste like a sugar-cinnamon cake donut. YUM. The outside had a slight crunch to it too on the first day.

 Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnut Muffins, aka Dirt Bombs
 Recipe from Bon Appetit
