I’ve shared several tutorials for the Daisies and Donuts Party we threw for Evie’s 1st birthday, and this recipe is part of those party details! I have to thank my mom who made these Glazed Donut Muffins for the party {thanks, Mudda!!!}, because they were a huge hit! These babies were perfect for our party, and I know they’d be great for other get togethers, showers, or brunches! But you definitely don’t need an excuse to make these muffins… They’re an excellent breakfast treat as well. 😉

I love these Glazed Donut Muffins because they really do taste like a donut, but they’re not fried as most donuts are. There’s a hint of spice, specifically cinnamon and nutmeg, that gives them a tremendous flavor! Not to mention the homemade glaze that each muffin is dipped in. These muffins are so phenomenal, and yet SO simple to make.

How to Make Glazed Donut Muffins:

In your mixer, beat together butter, oil and sugars until smooth. Next, add the eggs and beat until the mix is fluffy. Add the baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt vanilla, milk and flour. Beat well. Once everything is all mixed, spoon batter into liners and fill to tops. Bake for 15-17 minutes at 425 degrees or until tops are golden and spring back when touched. Let the muffins cool for 10 minutes before adding Glaze.

MY OTHER RECIPES

To make the glaze, mix melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and water together. Mix until smooth. When the 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!

    Heather Jones

    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!
