Our church always has treats after service. I signed up for tomorrow. I spent the afternoon in the kitchen making muffins -- 100 of them.
Two kinds --
Glazed Doughnut Muffins
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
For the Glaze:
3 tablespoons butter; melted
1 cup confectioners’ sugar; sifted
3/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons hot water
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line 12 muffin cups with muffin liners or spray with nonstick cooking spray.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together butter, vegetable oil, and sugars till smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time. With the mixer on low speed, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and vanilla until just combined. Stir the flour into the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour and mixing until just combined. Do not overmix!
Spoon batter into cups, filling the cups, and smooth tops. Divide batter equally among prepared muffin cups. Bake until muffin tops are a pale golden and springy to the touch, 15 to 17 minutes, rotating halfway through baking time. Cool muffins in muffin tin for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire rack and cool 10 minutes before glazing.
To make the glaze, In a medium bowl mix together the melted butter, confectioners’ sugar, vanilla and water. Whisk until smooth.
When muffins have cooled slightly, dip the muffin crown into the glaze and allow the glaze to harden. Once hardened, dip a second time and allow to harden then serve.

Aaahhh, Linderhof you are too special! I certainly appreciate the homemade from scrach goodies at fellowship hour.
Do you get loads of compliments?
I do when I serve.
It's so heartwarming.
But at the same time sad, because these folks could be doing the same thing as we are by baking or cooking at home. It's amazing to me what other folks must spend on a meal budget, even on prepped groceries and foods.
And what's even more sad, is what they are settling for in food flavor by not fixing it themselves.
NO WONDER anyone's home prepared stuff is SO GOOD!
Yes, I did. I must admit that at our church more of the fellowship hour goodies are homemade than not!
But everyone seemed to love the muffins because as I told them -- you put a doughnut in a muffin paper and it becomes "healthy"!!! LOL!!!
