For the Donuts:

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the Glaze:

  • 3 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles, Canada Day themed


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly spray a 12-hole mini muffin pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, use a hand-held mixer to blend together the milk, sour cream, eggs, and maple syrup.
  • Next, beat in the butter and vegetable oil.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and cinnamon. Beat into the wet ingredients.
  • Using a small cookie scoop, portion about 1 1/2 teaspoons of muffin batter into each muffin cavity in the mini muffin tin.
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool. (Depending on how many mini muffin tins you have, you will need to bake in batches.)
  • When the mini muffins have fully cooled, whisk together the confectioner's sugar, maple syrup, milk, and cinnamon until the icing is smooth and consistent. For a thicker icing, add more confectioner's sugar. For a thinner icing, add about 1/2 teaspoon of milk at a time.
  • Dip the mini muffin, top side down, into the icing. Lightly shake the excess icing off and place onto a wire cooling rack with a baking sheet under it.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the mini muffins with sprinkles and allow the icing to harden before serving.
  • Once the icing is hard, pack mini muffins in a resealable container with a tight-fitting lid to keep fresh.
