batter. Using a hand mixer, beat butter, eggs, sugar, pumpkin, spices, salt and baking powder until smooth. Gently stir in the flour.

glaze. In a small saucepan, melt chocolate, butter and corn syrup over low heat. Stir continuously until smooth. Add whipped cream and remove from heat. Add vanilla. Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes before glazing.
Regular size muffins: I love that these donut muffins are about the size of a donut hole. Perfect bite size! To make larger doughnut muffins, all you need is a regular sized muffin tin. Fill the cup about ¾ full and increase the bake time to about 25-30 minutes. Insert a toothpick to check doneness.
Storage: These donut muffins store well. You can cover them and store at room temperature for about 5 days. You can also freeze them unglazed for about 2 months. Quick freeze them first by placing them on a baking sheet and placing them in the refrigerator for a few hours. Once firm transfer them to a freezer-safe container.
Sugar Topping: You can make a sugar topping instead of using a glaze. Brush with butter when muffins cool, then roll with sugar.
