Baked Cake Doughnuts


Well....I did it, I finally made doughnuts. I don't like calling them donuts. I saw the heart shaped doughnut pan and was sold. They were actually quite easy and bake very quickly. They are a cake doughnut, so they are denser than a fried glazed doughnut, but still airy and sweet. The recipe calls for buttermilk, but I didn't have any on hand. Google told me I could make a buttermilk substitute, and with a 5 star rating, I was all in. Add 1 tablespoon vinegar to a 1 cup measuring cup. Add enough milk to bring the mixture to the 1 cup line. Let set for 5 minutes. That's it! Use what you need for your recipe!

Baked Cake Doughnuts

Ingredients

Doughnuts
2 cups cake flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted

Cinnamon Glaze
1 cup powders sugar
3-4 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Chocolate Glaze
1 cup powdered sugar
3-4 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup cocoa powder



Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray doughnut pan with nonstick cooking spray. In large bowl, sift together cake flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add vanilla, buttermilk, eggs, and butter. Beat until combined well. Fill each doughnut cup approximately 1/2 full. Bake 4-5 minutes or until the top of the doughnuts spring back when touched. Let cool in pan 2-3 minutes before removing. Repeat with remaining batter. Finish doughnuts with desired toppings and glaze.

To make the glaze:

In a small bowl, stir together choice of glaze ingredients until well combined. Use immediately. Dip one half of each doughnut into glaze. Let dry on wire rack.

The Dandelion Girl said...

this makes me want to get a donut pan... I love baking, but have yet to get one... Are they easy to make?

Allison said...

SO easy! The yeast version require a bit more work and a doughnut cutter rather than a pan, but these were so simple! Like making cupcakes!
