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.

  1. Raquel Tobler says

    These looked so delicious, and we are big fans of donuts. But they did not taste like donuts at all! They turned out dense, and tasted more like a roll than a donut. I followed the directions exactly. Any ideas why they didn’t turn out?

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      If you are looking for a taste of yeast fried donuts, then no – they will not taste like that. They do however taste like baked donuts. The recipe is similar, you just bake them in a muffin tin instead of a donut pan. Hope this helps. Thanks, Raquel!

  2. Loretta E says

    First of all, I adore that first shot! And doing a donut as a muffin is a great idea for a person like me that hasn’t gotten around to buying a donut pan yet and doesn’t want to resort to frying. Pinned for sure!

  3. Carol | a cup of mascarpone says

    These are the cutest muffins ever, and sound delicious! Love the translucent glaze…so, so pretty, Anna!

  4. Kate | Food Babbles says

    These are absolutely adorable!! Almost too pretty to eat… almost. I’d gobbled them all up ;) LOVE the “balancing act” first picture. Wow!

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      lol It was so tricky to keep them like that for few seconds! Or maybe it was because my kiddos were standing behind me waiting to grab them! lol Thanks, Kate!

  5. Ashley @ Kitchen Meets Girl says

    These donut muffins look awesome! I’m a donut/muffin freak, so I’ll have to try these out SOON! So glad to “meet” you at Ashton’s party!

  6. says

    I made something like this already for my cookbook. :) Much different recipe, but I swear – we love the same things!! Sprinkles for breakfast is always welcomed in my kitchen!

  7. says

    Wish I was on the guest list!

    These muffins look WICKED tasty……..

    PS-Anna, I’m giving away up to 5 copies of Hollis Wilder’s cookbook. You should get in on the action!

  8. Roxana GreenGirl says

    it’s almost time for my 3 o’clock coffee and treat. Now I wonder how can I grab one or more of your donut muffins and have them. Sounds delish Anna!

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      If you figure it out, let me know! I want a slice of your banana cake! :) Thanks, Roxana!

  10. Jennifer W. says

    Can you please tell me if these are made in a regular size cupcake pan (12) or in a mini cupcake pan? I can’t tell from the pictures, and the recipe doesn’t mention a size.

    • CrunchyCreamySw says

      Hi Jennifer! I used a standard muffin pan (12 muffins in one pan). Thank you for the question. Let me know if you give these a try!

  11. tanya-Lemons for Lulu says

    I would be thrilled to receive these gorgeous muffins! That glaze and those sprinkles are so darn inviting!

  12. Ashton says
