Glazed Vanilla Donut Muffins – baked muffins that taste like donuts, dressed with sweet vanilla glaze and sprinkles.
I’ve been invited to a party!
It wouldn’t be a party without treats, so I made donut muffins! With vanilla glaze! And sprinkles!
I thought they would be perfect for a celebration. After making this chocolate version, I knew that a vanilla one would be next.
They are super easy to make and make quite the cute treat. It’s Spring and time to celebrate the season. Flowers are blooming and the grass is getting greener. Where ever you look, there are reasons to celebrate.
