Baileys Coffee Donut Muffins
These mini baked coffee flavored donut muffins are topped with a Baileys Irish Cream glaze, making a delicious breakfast treat, snack, or dessert.
I can’t believe it’s March! Where did the time go? March marks the start of the busy season for me. I don’t know why it is, but March and April are always ridiculously busy months filled with birthdays, parties, holidays, etc.
One holiday I always look forward to is St. Patrick’s Day, mainly because I like the color green and Baileys Irish cream. Baileys Cream is great for cocktails and adding to coffee, but it’s hard to bake with as the alcohol tends to evaporate during the cooking process.
However, I solved that issue with these little glazed bites. The donuts themselves are coffee flavored and then they are topped with a Baileys flavored glaze. The end result is like drinking Baileys Irish coffee, but in the form of these donut muffins.
The best thing is, these are so easy to make. No mixer required. I mixed everything with a whisk!

- 3/4 cup granulated white sugar

- 1 1/2 tsp espresso powder
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup fat free milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Baileys glaze
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2-3 tbsp Baileys Irish liqueur
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together sugar and egg until combined. In a small bowl, sift flour baking powder and espresso. Add to large bowl, along with remaining ingredients and whisk until batter is smooth.
Fill each mini muffin cup about 3/4 full.
Bake for 10-11 minutes until muffins are puffy and knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let muffins cool in baking pan before gently removing with the help of small spatula.
To make the glaze, add sugar and 1 tbsp of Bailey's to a small bowl and whisk. Gradually add a little more liquor at a time and whisk, until it reaches a thick glaze consistency. You will likely need between 2-3 tbsp of Bailey's. Once glaze is ready, dip tops of muffins into glaze and then set aside of a sheet of parchment paper, allowing the glaze to drip down down and set. Serve once glaze is set.
