Easter Goodies!

Happy Easter, and Happy Spring to all my blogging friends! However you celebrate this day, I hope that it is a very good and enjoyable day for you and your family.

Today I would like to share a recipe with you. My friend and Norwex representative, Jennifer, actually created this recipe. Now I can follow a recipe, but creating one is a whole new ballgame. Thanks to Jennifer for sharing this recipe for “Glazed Donut Muffins.”

Now, let’s hop to it!

I made these Glazed Donut Muffins on Easter weekend as we had Danny and Jenn staying with us for a couple of days. I like to make something like this when we have company; that way, I don’t eat too many. These donut muffins were delicious, and I would happily make them again.

Two of the Twelve didn’t make it to the container.

The “Glazed Donut” does taste more like a “glazed cake donut” to me. It is sweet but not too sweet. I also think you creative types could come up with variations on the glaze, such as a cream cheese topping or maybe a lemon glaze.

As Jennifer would say, “Bon Appetite!”


    • I hope you like the muffins! I also thought the recipe was really easy to make. I have tried several of the Norwex products; let me know if you have any questions. Happy Easter!

  1. Thanks for the recipe share, Betty! I’m going to try them tomorrow, as 2 of my sisters and my Mom are coming to our place on Monday to learn Mahjong. It’ll be a nice treat that none of us have ever had before. I love Norwex products. One of my sisters sold it for quite some time, and now a cousin does. I can’t even name a fave product because I love everything. If pushed to name one, I’d have to say the wool dryer balls. Happy Easter!

    • You are welcome! I hope everybody likes the muffins. I’m looking forward to having another one tomorrow morning. 🙂 I like the Norwex products, too. Those micro cloths are great, and we use those counter cloths regularly. They really absorb, and it cuts down on how many paper towels we use. I hope you have a wonderful Easter!

  2. Oh my gosh those sound yummy!! I am going to have to try the recipe myself. We have the same problem, usually dessert recipes are too big for just 2 people if you want to avoid pigging out. Sometimes I make only 1/2 the recipe, or freeze part of it.

  3. I downsized my 12-muffin pan to a 6 when we made this move. Since then, I’ve learned some things are just best not sacrificed. At any rate, the first six are baking and my fingers are crossed that the rest of the batter holds up well enough as it waits its turn for the pan! Thanks for this great recipe, Betty! My neighbor has been living at the hospital with her dying father and I hope these will add a little sweetness to her very sad Easter day.
