How does that saying go… if it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it must be a duck. Well, what if something looks like a muffin, but tastes like a doughnut? What do you have then?? Well you have these wonderful, tasty Baked Doughnut Mini Muffins!!
I wanted to try making a baked doughnut, but I didn’t have a doughnut pan. So instead, I put the dough into mini muffin cups and voila…. out came these cute little mini muffins that taste like a doughnut.
The Chocolate Glaze is perfect on top of these little gems too. It’s the same type of glaze that you’d find covering a doughnut in a bakery, and it really helps to give these little muffins that “doughnut” look and taste.
