Glazed Donut Muffins

Glazed Donut Muffins

I am anticipating the big snowstorm that is suppose to start sometime today after 8:00 in the morning. Even though I don't really care for snow and was really getting use to the nice warm weather, I'm looking forward to being snowed in for a day.

I've already been making plans for what I'll do on Wednesday with the day off. Some of it of course involves baking. It just wouldn't be a snow day without baking something sweet and delicious in the oven. I'm thinking on Wednesday it'll be something chocolate too.

Well in anticipation of the upcoming snow I decided that I would post a recipe for muffins. Doesn't that just sound yummy on a cold winter day? These will be a perfect breakfast treat and they are quick and easy to make.

These muffins resemble the taste and kind of the look of glazed donuts. They are wonderful and I'm sure you are going to like them.
