Glazed Doughnut Muffins

I love glazed donuts...or is it doughnut? I like the more complicated spelling.  Just the thought of these guys makes my mouth water.  My parents used to walk us to Sweetie Pie's doughnut shop on Saturday mornings and we would get a dozen donuts.  I loved picking out which varieties to put into our big pink box.  Usually at least half were some version of the glazed doughnut, whether it be original, old fashioned, in bar form, or hole form.  

Today I stumbled on a recipe for glazed doughnut muffins.  But don't let the muffin form fool you. These taste just like the old-fashioned glazed doughnuts I used to get at Sweetie Pie's and are super easy and fun to make at home.  You can use regular sized or mini muffin tins.


For the Muffins:
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 large 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 all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
For the Glaze:
3 tablespoons butter; melted
1 cup confectioners’ sugar; sifted
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons hot water

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix the wet ingredients (except the milk), through the eggs with a hand mixer.  Mix the dry ingredients separately. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a spatula and alternate adding in the milk.  Careful not to over-mix.  The batter will be a little stick/doughier than most muffin recipes.  Spray a muffin tin with oil and scoop batter in until about 3/4 full.  Bake for about 13 minutes, or until the tops are slightly golden.  Whisk together the glaze while the muffins cool.  Then dip the tops of each muffin into the glaze.  Let them sit and harden, then dip once more.
