Hey everyone!  Ready for the weekend.  These Cinnamon Apple Donut Muffins will surely make it a good one.  I am so excited to be working with fall flavors.  What is better than warm cinnamon apples for September.  These little breakfast treats fall somewhere between a donut and a muffin hence a donut muffin or duffin as we call them in The Raulli House.   These Donut Muffins are made from boxed pancake batter in just a few simple steps and cook in a mini muffin pan so clean up is easy.  These are beyond fantastic warm.  If you have any left overs from breakfast, simply pop them into the microwave for about 10 seconds and treat yourself to a yummy dessert.

    Oh my! These donuts are amazing! So far I have made 4 batches of them! They are a hit with everyone! One of my grandsons is gluten free so I used gluten free pancake mix instead of regular. They turned out great! Thank you so much for this recipe!!!
