Sweet Potato Muffin Donuts



So the fall craze is in full swing here at my house. Every baked item I’ve made has a fall flavor to it. I just can’t help it.

These muffin donuts were delicious! The original recipe was for pumpkin donut muffins but I didn’t have any pumpkin thawed so I used sweet potatoes that I didn’t know what to do with.

I baked them in my vintage jello molds so that they would have a cute twist to them. I called the “bottom” of them the “butt side”…just because they are puffy!

Look at the beautiful twisted top of these beauties! Don’t mind my ugly baking sheet!

They were even more gorgeous dipped in the butter and cinnamon sugar!

These were sooooo good with a glass of milk!
