  • For the Dry Mix:
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt 
  • For the Wet Mix: 
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature done
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or olive oil done
  • 1/2 cup white granulated sugar done
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar done
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • Scant 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 cup milk 
  • For the Chocolate Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with liners and set aside. 
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 
  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter, vegetable oil, white sugar, brown sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon together until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Next, add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until thoroughly combined. 
  4. Add a quarter of the flour to the butter mixture, and then add a quarter of the milk. Repeat this process until everything is completely combined. 
  5. Fill the prepared muffin liners, filling them up three-quarters full. Transfer to the oven for 15 to 17 minutes, or until they're lightly golden brown and when a cake tester inserted into the middle of the muffins come out clean. 
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a minute or two, and then transfer them to a rack to cool completely. 
  7. While the muffins are cooling, let's make the glaze! In a medium bowl, sift in the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and salt. Pour in the milk and vanilla extract; whisk until completely smooth. Dunk the muffins into the glaze and then top with sprinkles.
