Glazed Vanilla Donut Muffins - baked muffins that taste like donuts, dressed with sweet vanilla glaze and sprinkles.
GLAZED VANILLA DONUT MUFFINS
Donut muffins are a cross between baked donuts and fluffy muffins. After making the Chocolate Glazed Donut Muffins, 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.

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?
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!

What happy and beautiful muffins. My first question is how did you get those muffins to stack like that... too cool.
Sprinkles and donuts are meant for each other! Love this recipe.
Thanks so much, Chung-Ah!
Are they mini muffins or regular? I hope mini.
Love this... love the glaze.... muffin dounut.. nice combo
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!
Same here. That was the reason why I started making these. 🙂 Thank you, Loretta!
These are the sweetest looking muffins, I love the glaze and the sprinkles!

These are absolutely adorable!! Almost too pretty to eat... almost. I'd gobbled them all up 😉 LOVE the "balancing act" first picture. Wow!
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!
Ooh I really love this. Beautiful and looks delicious!
Thanks you so much, Monica!

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.
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!
