baked donuts.


Today, I made homemade doughnuts.


They were fabulous.



I made chocolate ones with toasted coconut.



I made vanilla ones with toasted coconut.



I made chocolate ones with sprinkles.



And vanilla ones with sprinkles.



And I have left-overs.

But, let's get real...I'm giving those just about 2 more hours. I got all Martha in the kitchen today and finally used my doughnut pans that I just had to have over a  year ago.

They. Were. Awesome. But, I bet you could already tell that from the pictures. And they are baked, so they're a little healthier, I suppose. Here's the recipe straight from April 2010 Family Circle magazine.

For Vanilla Cake Doughnuts:

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. low-fat buttermilk
1/2 c. packed dark-brown sugar
1 egg
4 t. melted unsalted butter
1 t. vanilla

Mix dry ingredients in small bowl, set aside. In another bowl mix wet ingredients until smooth and add to flour mixture. Spoon batter into a Ziploc bag and cut off a corner. Squeeze batter into each indentation in doughnut pan, about 2/3 full. Smooth top with small spoon. Bake at 325 for 13 minutes, until doughnuts are slightly springy. Let cool and then move on to the icing, baby!

For Chocolate Cake Doughnuts:

1 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. low-fat buttermilk
1/2 c. packed dark brown sugar
1 egg
4 t. melted unsalted butter
1 t. vanilla

Same directions as above.

Icing:

1 c. powdered sugar
1 T. + just a little extra milk

Stir until smooth. Dip top of doughnuts into bowl and allow extra icing to drip back into bowl. Place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper and start your toppings. You can also make chocolate icing by adding 1 T. unsweetened cocoa powder to powdered sugar and milk. Top with toasted coconut, sprinkles, mini-chocolate chips, mini M & Ms...whatever!

Seriously, your welcome.
