Baked Donuts In Less than 20 Minutes!


After missing out on eating a donut on "National Donut Day" a few weeks ago, I had a craving for them.  I decided what better way to enjoy a donut than figure out how to make a non-fried version myself at home?!  I ordered this donut pan on amazon and eagerly awaited its arrival so I could get my Kripsy Kreme on!  I was pleasantly surprised with how quick and easy donuts are to make and they use ingredients that are common in every pantry!  I hope you enjoy!



Ingredients

for the donuts

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon of butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla

for the glaze

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 3-6 tablespoons milk
  • food coloring of your choice

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Combine dry ingredients
  • Add egg, milk, butter, and vanilla
  • Stir until combined (don't stir too much or it will make the donuts chewy)
  • Place batter in a ziplock bag and cut off the tip to fashion a piping bag.  (I usually put the bag in a glass and scoop the dough in)  
  • Pipe batter into a donut pan that is sprayed with non-stick spray
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes
  • Allow to cool on a baking rack while you prepare frosting
  • To prepare frosting--combine all ingredients in a mixer, whipping until you get a buttercream-like consistency
  • Dip donut in frosting and allow to cool. (The frosting will melt onto your Donut.  Dip multiple times for a thicker glaze).
  • Enjoy!
