Donut Cupcakes

1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1 pkg yellow cake mix (18.25 oz.)
1 Tbl. ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 24 mini muffin pan cups with non-stick spray. Combine cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and set aside. Prepare cake mix according to package. Stir nutmeg into batter. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake about 12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from pans and roll in cinnamon sugar until completely coated. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 24 mini cupcakes.

The nutmeg gives the cakes a donut flavor. Changes can be made by changing the spice or cake mix flavor. This would be good with chocolate cake instead of yellow.
