Happy Friday everyone. Today I’m making donuts and I’m pretty excited about it! I’ve been wanting to try them ever since my children bought me the pans last year for my birthday. They bought the regular size and mini donuts pans.
I made the fried variety years ago with my mom but the process is pretty messy and not all that healthy. Although I’m pretty sure this recipe isn’t really healthy either. I mean, after all, they are donuts. It’s just better because they are baked instead of fried, Right?
Well anyway, this recipe is pretty simple and doesn’t take much time to whip up. Not sure who’s recipe it is. I think I got it from a magazine quite some time ago. So let’s get started, shall we?
I didn’t take many pics because it’s pretty self explanatory. It’s all made in two bowls and 2 donut pans.
Ingredients for Donuts:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter,melted
- rainbow sprinkles
Ingredients for Glaze:
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
- pink food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray your donut pans with non-stick spray. Set aside. In first bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and nutmeg. Set it aside.In second bowl, whisk together yogurt, egg, milk until smooth. Add the vanilla and melted butter and continue whisking until it’s completely combined.
Next, pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until combined. At this point the batter is very thick and sticky.
For the next step, I highly recommend you put the batter into a Ziploc bag. I like to put the bag in a glass and turn the edges of the bag down.
Cut the tip of the bag and fill each donut cup 2/3 full. The batter is thick & sticky and I found this the best way. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes until the edges are lightly brown. Remove from pan and cool on rack.
Next, Combine all the glaze ingredients and stir until completely smooth. Now drunk the donuts into the glaze one at a time. Add the sprinkles immediately because the glaze sets up pretty fast.
Let sit until glaze hardens.
I made a few large donuts and about 1/2 dozen of the tiny ones.
And when I say tiny, I’m not exaggerating. Measuring in at about 1 1/2 inch in diameter.
I love how cute they are!
I think I’ll give this batch to a friend that I haven’t seen in awhile.
Makes a sweet valentine, don’t ya think?
