Begin by creaming your butter, sugars and vegetable oil in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat till smooth. Add in your eggs, mix to combine. Add in your cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, baking powder, baking soda , and vanilla. Blend. Now its time for your flour and milk. Add them in alternately beginning and ending with the flour. Scoop them into paper lined cupcake tins (standard size) Fill almost to top as you want them to dome so you can glaze them. Bake at 425 for 14-17 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool slightly on rack. Prepare your glaze with melted butter, confectioners sugar, hot water, and vanilla. Whisk till smooth. Dip the crown of the muffins into the glaze. Let harden. Repeat the dip if you so desire, I did. Look how pretty. They were wonderful. The delicate flavor along with the slightly sweet glaze makes them irresistible. Originally found here, on My Baking Addiction, it is also below on my key ingredient printable recipe card.
