Glazed Donut Muffins

I stumbled on these yummy muffins through Pinterest (I think). The name alone gave me reason to try them out. I am trilled to report that they are absolutely delicious - a perfect, sweet breakfast treat. The flavor of the muffin reminds me of the buttermilk spice muffins at Mimi's Cafe. The glaze is luscious. These are perfect with a cup of tea or you favorite morning coffee.


Glazed Donut Muffins
for the muffins...
1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup vegetable oil (I used canola oil)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups flour
1 cup milk
for the glaze...
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons hot water
make the muffins...
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Line 12 muffin cups with muffin liners.
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the butter, oil, and sugars until smooth. Beat in the eggs. Add the baking powder, baking soda nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla and mix until combined. Mix in the flour, alternating with the milk until just combined. Don't overmix it.
Use a large cookie scoop to fill the muffin cups, dividing the batter equally among the 12 prepared muffin cups. Bake 15 to 17 minutes or until puffed and lightly golden, rotating halfway through the baking time. 
Cool muffins on a wire rack. 
make the glaze...
In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and water. Whisk together until smooth. Dip the top of each muffin into the glaze and allow excess to drip back into the bowl. Place the muffins on a plate or the wire rack and allow the glaze to harden. You can dip the muffins a second time if you want extra glaze.
