Glazed Muffins

I found this recipe on Pinterest, my favorite site ever!!! The original recipe is called Glazed Donut Muffins but I didn't really think it tasted like a donut. It tasted more like a spice cake with a glaze on top. But I thought they were so good! They were a hit with my family and I'm sure I'll be making them again.

Glazed Muffins

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup milk

3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
3/4 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp hot water

Preheat oven to 425. Line 12 muffin cups with liners or spray with cooking spray.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together butter, vegetable oil, and sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time. With the mixer on low speed, add baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla until just combined. Add the flour and milk alternately, beginning and ending with the flour, making sure everything is thoroughly combined.

Spoon batter equally into cups, filling to the top and smoothing. Bake until muffins are lightly golden and springy to the touch, about 15-17 minutes, rotating halfway through baking time. Cool in muffin tins for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool for 10 minutes before glazing.

To make glaze, mix together melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and water. Whisk until smooth.

Dip the muffin crowns into the glaze and allow the glaze to harden. Once hardened, dip a second time and allow to harden before serving.

Makes 12 muffins
