Apple and Cheddar Scones

Doughnut Muffins

image

These are exactly what they sound like – muffins that taste like doughnuts! At first glance they seem kind of plain. There are no add-ins (although I’m sure you could come up with some great additions!), no outstanding flavor combinations – they are just...
