Glazed Donut Muffins. These muffins are divine! A must-keep recipe. { }

The recipe came from Sweet Peas Kitchen found via Pinterest. We made just a few modifications…

Here is how you can make it as well:

Glazed Donut Muffins

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2⅔ cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 TB melted butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 TB hot water
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line cupcake tray with liners.
  2. In your mixer, beat together butter, oil and sugars until smooth. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Add powder, soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt vanilla, milk and flour. Beat well.
  3. Spoon batter into liners and fill to tops. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until tops are golden and springy to the touch. Let cool 10 minutes before adding Glaze.
  4. To make the glaze, mix melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and water together. Mix until smooth.
  5. When muffins have cooled slightly, dip the muffin top into the glaze and allow the glaze to harden. Once hardened, dip a second time and allow to harden. Serve and enjoy.

I love that these have a little spice and taste just as good as donuts but aren’t fried like most donuts.

    Hey there!
    These were very yummy, although definitely too sweet for breakfast lol My muffins are a bit crumbly, and I’m not sure why. I didn’t overcook them and followed the ingredients exactly. I may just add a bit more milk next time and see if that helps moisten things up. They weren’t dry, but not as moist as I had imagined they would be. Overall a very yummy recipe and I will make again!
