Last fall as I was searching for pumpkin recipes, I stumbled upon these glazed pumpkin donut muffins. I immediately pinned the recipe and made them a few times throughout the fall. What are donut muffins, you might ask? Exactly what they sound like! These are muffins that are very much a donut consistency, and are all together absolutely amazing! I also loved that I could easily make these lactose free! You’ll have to click on the link above to see the recipe in total, but I thought I’d share part of it here:


  • Butter
  • All purpose flour
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • ground allspice
  • buttermilk
  • vanilla
  • pumpkin puree
  • brown sugar
  • eggs
  • powdered sugar
  • half & half (I used almond milk)
  • vanilla
  • pumpkin pie spice

It sounds delicious based just on the ingredients, doesn’t it?

This is what the cooking process looked like:

Glaze all mixed up


Dip muffins in the glaze. Let dry. Dip again. Let dry. Dip again.

I put a piece of wax paper underneath the wire drying racks to make clean up easy and effortless! The glaze really makes these muffins absolutely delicious. I froze a few of them and enjoyed them later in the season, and they held up surprisingly well in the freezer as well.

Last year I enjoyed one of these on Thanksgiving morning, and they were a perfect way to start the day… after a Turkey Trot anyways 🙂
