Glazed Donut Muffins Recipe

Have you ever found yourself choosing between a doughnut or a muffin to start your day? Well, now you don’t have to choose! These glazed doughnut muffins are perfect for those of us that just can’t make up our minds in the morning! Moist muffins spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg and dipped in a delicious powdered sugar glaze. Mmmm…

How Long Do Glazed Donut Muffins Last?

If you make a batch of these glazed donut muffins, you will want to make sure to store them properly. If the donuts are stored correctly, the muffins should last about 3-5 days. When you are storing the muffins, you want to make sure they are in an airtight container or put in a freezer bag. The muffins can be stored on the counter for three days or they can be stored in the refrigerator for 5 days. While the donut muffins will last longer in the fridge, however, the donuts will taste drier when cold.

Can you freeze donuts and muffins?

Whenever I make donuts and muffins I like to make extra. By making extras I can freeze half of them to have for another time. This works for both muffins and donuts, and in this case, donut muffins. It is simple to freeze donuts. Wait until muffins have cooled and the icing has set. It can be helpful to freeze the donut muffins first and the put the muffins into a freezer bag. This helps to keep the icing on the muffins from sticking to the plastic. The donut muffins will last for about 3 months in the freezer.
