Glazed Donut Muffins

I can't believe that I didn't get a picture of these muffins! I am so mad at myself!! I made these up for the teachers and aides that my kids have in their classrooms with a little note that said "Donut" you know you are my Valentine? or something like that... :) They turned out super cute and I was very excited to send them in. Hopefully they were a hit - we were actually gone for Valentine's Day, visiting family in Arizona so we sent everything in a few days early. I doubled the batch and had them for breakfast with the daycare kids too and they were a hit around here. They had this wonderful hint of nutmeg that made them even more delicious!

EDITED May 13, 2015 - I made these again for teacher appreciation week. I got my picture this time around! :) Again they were a huge hit with everyone that tried them...

Glazed Donut Muffins
(recipe found on pinterest via

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup milk

3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons hot water

Preheat oven to 425. Line 12 muffin cups with liners or spray with cooking spray. In a stand mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, beat butter, oil and sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time until combined. With mixer on low, add baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and vanilla until just combined. Stir in flour alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour and mixing until just combined. Do not overmix. Spoon batter into muffin pan and smooth tops. Bake until muffin tops are golden and spring back when touched, about 15-17 minutes. Rotate pans halfway through baking time. Cool muffins in tins for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack 10 minutes before glazing. To make glaze - in a medium bowl, add together all ingredients and whisk until smooth. Dip muffin crown into glaze and allow glaze to harden. Once it has harden, redip muffins and allow to harden again.
