Glazed Doughnut Muffins

Last night, I was really {really really really} wanting muffins AND doughnuts.  Then I remembered seeing these Glazed Doughnut Muffins. Win, win! 
BUT as bad as I wanted to,  it was about 9:30 at night 
and I wasn't just going to take out my mixing bowl and whip up a batch...
So I decided to make them this afternoon. 

I honestly wish you {yes. all 104 of you!} were in my kitchen when these bad boys were in the oven! They smelled like mini doughnuts from the state fair... Yum. Yet another thing that I miss from home; doughnuts. We've tried some from the bakeries here, but trust me- they are NOT doughnuts. It's a sad fact, my friends. 

Anyways. The muffins were SO good and cakey! After I let them sit for awhile, the glaze soaked in
and formed an almost crunchy shell around the muffin and a sticky texture inside. Oh gracious. Nothing like some muffin magic to help ya get through a case of the Mondays!

Glazed Doughnut Muffins
Recipe from French Press

2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter, melted
2 eggs
1 c. milk
1 tbsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla

Combine the flour, sugar, spices, salt, and baking powder. Add in the eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Fill a muffin cup with 2/3 of the batter. Bake for 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Allow to cool. 

For the glaze: 
4 tbsp. melted butter
1 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tbsp. water

Once the muffins have cooled, dip in glaze. I dipped them all once and then
went for a second round. Double-glazed, baby(;

Pin It!

  7. Ack... just noticing that the recipe says Baking SODA, but the follow-up paragraph says Baking POWDER. Which is it? Hoping the recipe was the right one and the follow up just a slip of the tongue...


Thanks so much for taking a moment or two of your time to leave a comment! I love 'em!
