baked cake doughnuts

Ok so if you didn't know (from this post, this post and this post) I love doughnuts-like A LOT. In fact I have a dream of one day opening a doughnut shop in my hometown on the Oregon Coast someday.

If I could eat doughnuts everyday I would but that wouldn't be so healthy. So recently I have been on a mission to make my own doughnuts without the frying.

When I found this super cool doughnut pan it sealed the deal- I had to make my own baked doughnuts. This great pan makes a variety of different doughnut possible!

To my surprise there are all sorts of fabulous baked doughnut recipes out there and I paired a couple of them together to come up with my own.

I started by mixing the dry ingredients-

2 cups of cake flour
3/4 cup of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

and then added the wet ingredients and mixed everything together-

3/4 cup of buttermilk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of butter
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

Next I added the batter to the doughnut pan.

and baked at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes.

I let them cool and then dipped the doughnuts in melted butter and then dipped then in cinnamon and sugar.



And while I put another batch in the oven I quickly devoured a warm cinnamon and sugar doughnut.



just about gone :) yum

For my second batch I made a simple glaze-

1/4 cup of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups of powdered sugar.

Combine everything in sauce pan and heat on low.
Whisk everything together until combined and remove from heat.

I dipped the doughnuts into the glaze

and set on a drying rack.


Regardless of the glaze or topping these doughnuts are so delicious but taste more like cake than a fried doughnut- a perfect way to satisfy a doughnut craving :)

Finally a donut recipe that is right on the money. I have tried others where the heat is way too high and they burned. Ingredients off and measurements etc. Thought I would give another chance today and following the recipe exactly they came out perfect!!! They are so good, I also did one batch in sugar/cinnamon and other in cream cheese frosting. Will make again. Oh, got my pan online @ Amazon, but found them also at Hobby Lobby.

Turned out terrible. Very rubbery texture, and Yes I used cake flour. Recipe did NOT specify if the 2 tablespoons of butter was room temp, cold or melted. Very disappointed.

I just bought two of these Wilton donut pans at Walmart for under $9.00 each!

Jen said...

How many does this recipe make?? My son wants to make donuts for his class this tuesday and has 21 -- just wondering if i need to double or quadruple this. help!

Unknown said...

I made these this afternoon they were beautiful and raised up so pretty.. But I didn't like the taste at all not sweet enough and left a baking soda after taste. Perhaps more sugar is needed and a little less baking soda. Not gonna give up trying to get them to taste better..

Unknown said...

I got the pans at Sur la Table, but they are Wilton pans. So, I'm sure you can find them on Amazon, eBay,, or maybe even Target or Michael's.

Just made these and they are fantastic! So light and fluffy. I honestly can't believe how airy they are. Thank you for sharing the recipe!!! YUM :)

Jen, I made the recipe as is and it made exactly 14 perfectly sized donuts

my husband loves cake donuts but he's diabetic. could I use a low carb flour and a sugar substitute?

I made these this morning. They were ok but didn't have the denser consistency of other cake donuts I've had. They were spongy, more like a muffin. The flavor was fine. Any ideas as to what I may have done wrong?

Unknown said...

I have a Babycakes donut maker can I use this recipe in that instead of the donut pan for the oven
