baked and glazed doughnuts

I am obsessed with doughnuts and few years ago I shared a yummy baked doughnut recipe. Since then I have been experimenting and playing around with different doughnut recipes and I think I've got one that I'm happy with. I tried it out over Easter weekend to my delight the doughnuts were a hit!

While I love anything fried, I really like using a doughnut pan because baked doughnuts are a little bit  healthier than fried (and they make me feel less guilty about splurging on toppings).

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1 egg
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a doughnut pan.

Mix dry ingredients and set aside.
Whisk the wet ingredients together and pour into the dry.
Stir until combined.
Fill doughnut cups with batter.

Bake for 10 min or until the edges are lightly browned.

I decided to have a little fun creating a few different glazes:

plain glaze:
1/4 cup of milk
2 cups of powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

orange glaze:
2 tablespoons milk
2 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons orange juice

strawberry glaze:
handful of strawberries- pureed
2 tablespoons milk
2 cups of powdered sugar

Combine the glaze ingredients in a sauce pan over low heat. Whisk until the glaze is smooth.

chocolate glaze:
1/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoon milk
2-3 tablespoons powdered sugar

I LOVE cake doughnuts! Never thought about using yogurt in the recipe before. Don't have a doughnut pan either. Hmmm...I'm either going to improvise or go shopping :) Thanks ever so much for sharing this!
