Glazed Donut Muffins

I had to cook these Glazed Donut Muffins when everyone was out of the house to ensure that I would have enough to photograph for my post. That is how fast they go here at the cottage, I can barley get them on the plate and they are gone. This is a great muffin that is a donut but baked in the oven and glazed with a yummy glaze, of course they will all be gone quick! (I am having one before they get back home).

Miz Helen's Kitchen
Ingredients
2-3/4 all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup corn starch
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup buttermilk
8 tablespoons butter, melted
2 large eggs
1 egg yolk
Glaze
2 cups confection sugar, sifted
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon extract flavor of your choice
Directions
For The Muffins
Sift into a large mixing bowl, flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
Stir together, buttermilk, eggs and egg yolk, plus melted butter, mix well.
Using a spatula mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until blended, don't over mix.
With a cooking oil spray, spray a 12 cup muffin tin.
Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tin.
Adjust the oven rack to middle position and bake the muffins in a preheated 400 degree oven for 19 to 24 minutes, until golden brown on top. Check the center with a toothpick to make sure it comes out clean.
Remove from oven and cool on a cooling rack until room temperature.
For The Glaze
In a medium, mix the sifted sugar with the milk and 1 teaspoon extract, until completely smooth.
For Different colors:
For different colors add 1 tablespoon of the glaze for each muffin to a small bowl, then add the color and mix until you have the desired color.
I did not use the extract in the large mix but rather flavored the different colors with just a drop of extract in each mix.
For the Lavender, I used a Lavender Essential Oil.
For The Yellow, I used a Lemon Essential Oil.
For The Green, I used a Mint Essential Oil.
For The Pink, I used a Raspberry Extract.
Enjoy!
