Growing up maple donuts were my favorite!!! Coming from a chocoholic it was big for me to pick a maple bar over a chocolate bar. The maple glaze got me every single time. I honestly could drink it, okay I have semi-drank some maple glaze before and made myself ill, but it was worth it! LOL

A few months ago I made some Apple Muffins with a Maple Glaze and they were bomb diggity, I brought them into work for a meeting and they were all gobbled up. I think about those muffins more than one should really think about muffins.

  1. These look fabulous! However, the directions were a little different. Between step 3 & 4 is pretty vague. It doesn’t clearly state that you put the dough in the MUFFIN tin and put the streusel on top? Also, in the title and pictures they are muffins, but in the directions, it’s calling for a donut pan,,???
    Just saying ..I will be making them, but I’ll have to sort of wing it as far as the directions are concerned.
    I can’t wait to try them.

    1. Funny story, I just figured out how to make different sections in the directions and needless to say I uploaded an older version that wasn’t complete, I have fixed it now. Sorry for the mistakes, hope its clear now. And hope you do try these! We loved them!! And as far as the donut pan.. I think I have donuts on my mind all too often ๐Ÿ˜‰
