Glazed Doughnut "Muffies"

Preston LOVES "Muffies" (aka muffins).
He also loves "no-nuts" (aka doughnuts).

When I saw the recipe for doughnuts muffins I knew I had to make them!

We tried out this recipe for Glazed Doughnut Muffies and it tasted as good as it sounds!

I usually let the kids help make them.
Preston loves to mix.

And this is what happens when it's no longer his turn to mix...


(AKA No-nut Muffies according to Preston)

    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 cup vegetable oil (I replaced the butter and oil with 1/2 cup applesauce)
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
Mix everything together and bake at 350 for about 15-17 minutes.
Ours had to bake about 17-18 minutes.
For the Glaze:

3 tablespoons butter; melted
1 cup confectioners’ sugar; sifted
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons hot water-(I added 1 T and thought it was runny enough.)

Dip the cooled muffins into the glaze.

They were both licking their fingers while we ate them!

My Muffie-loving boy!

We tried to let them cool enough so the glaze would stay on but we just couldn't wait.
If they had cooled a bit longer ours may have looked like the original picture!
