Glazed Doughnut Muffins – These muffins have the texture and flavors of classic cake doughnuts, covered in glaze.
At work, we have an extremely busy part of the year (referred to as our “busy season”). Busy season runs from about January to March. For my team, it ended on February 23rd. To celebrate the end of this stressful and grueling period, some of the girls on the team went to get Mani/Pedi’s (manicures/pedicures for my abbreviation-challenged friends) and drink Mimosas. To add one more “M” to the mix, I decided to make muffins for the ladies (I’m pretty crafty, I know).
I stumbled upon this recipe when I browsing through FoodGawker (great site to gather recipes, by the way). Apparently, doughnut muffins are the new “thing” because I found a ton of different kinds. I chose this basic recipe since it was my first time making them; didn’t wanna get too crazy right off the bat!

The nutmeg in the recipe takes these otherwise ordinary muffins to the next level. Talk about flavor explosion! But the real anchor of this recipe is the glaze. Definitely out of this world. Make sure to double-dip the muffins in the glaze to make them extra-great.
