Good morning everyone! I have arrived in Nantucket and it as beautiful as I remember. Tensions are running high in my family but what else is new, especially since all five of us are stuck in the house, it is raining right now. Everything will, hopefully calm down soon.
Before I left , I made some delicious muffins that taste a lot like doughnuts... but they taste more like home than anything else. It must be the combination of the sweetness of the glaze, the butter, the cinnamon, and the nutmeg. These muffins didn't really taste too much like doughnuts but they reminded me of home, of comfort and my childhood. Nutmeg and cinnamon are too constants in my life, not only are they my favorite spices, along with vanilla, but they are in most of my recipes.
Muffins are great and so are doughnuts but these doughnut muffins are awesome!! While you lose the crispy, fried bits from the doughnuts, you gain much more of a cake-y consistency. These muffins were dunked into the glaze twice, but you could totally dunk each muffin top 3 times for a thick and rich glaze that can rival a frosting. If you wish to top with sprinkles or blueberries, do so, immediately after the muffin has been coated 2 or 3 times with glaze. These doughnut muffins are perfect for breakfast on the go and will make great school snacks. Enjoy!
