Baked Apple Donuts and Mocha Caramel Brownies





The Super Bowl was FANTASTIC!! What a game, we spent the last 2 minutes of the game pacing back and forth. The STEELERS rule!!  To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.
 My party menu consisted of the Pizza I blogged about in the last post, Pulled Pork Sandwiches and Homemade Potato Rolls with baked beans and cole slaw.   Dessert was Paula's Mocha Caramel Brownies, a moist chewy lusciously rich brownie topped with a Mocha Cream Cheese Frosting. Oh Paula these were FANTASTIC!!!

My picture isn't nearly as good as Paula's, so go visit her and check out her picture and the recipe!

Today I decided to make Baked Apple Donuts, the recipe calls them donuts but to me they're muffins. Wonderful muffins that are rolled in butter and cinnamon sugar after they're baked.



Oh how I love apples and cinnamon. Grace loves cinnamon so much that she has an event that I'm going to submit these to called "Cinnamon Celebration"

You have until Friday February 13 at 12 midnight to get your entry in. Your recipe, (preferably a recipe you haven't blogged about before), should have at least 1 tsp of cinnamon in it.

This recipe came from A View of America recipe site. The next time I make these I'll add more apples (just because I love them), and replace the nutmeg with cinnamon , I'm not real fond of nutmeg and prefer cinnamon. Actually this recipe didn't have cinnamon in the batter, I added it. I made regular sized muffins (6 ) and decided to make mini muffins( 6) as well, this is a very nice donut ....muffin recipe!

I made these muffins, but never thought to add apples!!!

Susan S. said...

OMG....those muffins look delicious! I LOVE cinnamon too!

Don't feel bad about your food not looking like the professional pictures (i.e. the Paula brownies). I saw a tv show on Food Network Challenge and they had FOOD DESIGNERS on. They had to create a dish that would photograph well and have the correct ingredients included (and SOME extra ingredients to make the food prettier). They had all sorts of trick....and didn't always prepare the food to the exact specifications...just so it would LOOK pretty.

Amanda said...

Ok I just WANT those brownies! YUM!

Lucy said...

Glad to see Chloe resting some.... those puppies surely work themselves out!!!

The donuts and brownies look amazing... wishing I could help myself!!!

Elra said...

Chloe seems has the same personality as my female Golden retriever. Sometimes, she sleeps like that, but not in my sofa.

Baked donuts sounds very delicious!
Cheers,
Elra

"...roll in butter, then in sugar mixture." How could that not be good?! Your muffins and your brownies look delicious. All I had to eat for the Superbowl were Skittles and Tostitos with salsa from my son's party. I wish I'd been at your house.

Erin said...

Hi, Bunny, I forgot to tell you that I linked to these bake apple doughnuts on my blog and that I made them again after that for Superman's work. The second time I made them, I made them all minis and the people went crazy for them. Superman says they absolutely loved the minis and that they were way easy to eat (at work)! Thanks for sharing the recipe with us! http://nagle5.blogspot.com/2009/02/baked-apple-doughnuts-random-thoughts.html
