Duffins for Fathers Day

About a month ago a co-worker shared with me a story about a "Duffin", a cross between a doughnut and a muffin.  I've wanted to make one since I read about it.  When my parents suggested brunch to celebrate Fathers Day, and asked if I would do a sweet, I instantly though... this is the time... DUFFINS!!!!  I mixed all the dry ingredients last night and brought all the finishing components so I could throw them together and bake them at my parents house... The result was a yummy, warm, sugary goodness that had the family fighting over the last one.

Here is the light fluffy batter....

Here are a few shots of the finished product...

Here is the light, fluffy airy inside... they had a wonderful consistency and were so soft and perfectly sweet.  They reminded me of an old-fashioned sugar/cinnamon cake donut.

When I got home, I didnt have any leftovers for John's parents, so I had to make another batch!

These came out slightly better in my opinion.  Granted, I had already made them once now, so it was easier to put them together than working with uncharted territory like I did this morning.  One thing I can say for certain... DO NOT grease your pans with butter... it definitely makes your edges darker.  This time I used my trusty spray, and they looked perfect.  So perfect in fact that John's dad, Big John, couldn't wait to get his hands on one!

Happy Father's Day to all the daddy's out there!!!!
