Donut hole cupcakes

pretty much this

3/4 c sugar
1 egg
1/4 c canola
3/4 c milk
1 t vanilla
1.5 c flour
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 t each nutmeg and cardamom
1 T melted butter
sugar on a plate

Preheat oven to 350F and butter pans for at least 6 regular-sized cupcakes and 24 mini cupcakes (original recipe claims to make 12 cupcakes, but I had even more batter than fit in those pans). Cream together sugar and egg, then stir in the rest of the wet ingredients (oil, milk, vanilla). Stir together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, spices) and stir into the batter. Fill cupcake tins and bake: 17 min for regular cupcakes, 12 min for minis. Brush tops with butter, loosen from pans, roll in sugar, and cool on a cooling rack. Extra tasty filled with lemon curd and topped with a blueberry!

    Any chance you could put up the recipe for the pie as well? That was really nice and I would like to try and make it myself
