Recipe || Homemade Baked Donuts
Lately we have been obsessed with homemade baked donuts. 🍩 They are so easy to make and very delicious. If you don’t already have donut pans, you can purchase them from Amazon. That is where I purchased mine. There are plenty of great recipes out there. We have tried a few different recipes. My favorites are from King Arthur Flour (see links at the end of this post). The following recipe is the “NEW-fashioned cake doughnuts”. These donuts are my kids favorite!
You can either use a mixer or a small mixing bowl. I use a mixer for homemade baked donuts recipe. To start off you’ll beat together the butter, vegetable oil, and sugars until smooth. Next add the eggs, beating to combine the whole mixture.
Stir in the baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, salt, and vanilla. Next you’ll want to stir the flour into the butter mixture alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour. I usually alternate 1 cup flour, a 1/2 cup milk, 1 cup flour, the rest of the milk, and the last 2/3 of flour. Make sure it is combined before alternating to the other item. The batter will be fairly thick.
Next you’ll need to get the batter into the doughnut pans. I pour the mixture into a gallon Ziplock plastic baggie. If you prefer, you use icing piping. Once the mixture is in and the top is closed, clip the corner of the baggie. Pour the batter into the pans by filling the wells about 1/4″ shy of the rim.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. Let the donuts rest for a good 5 minutes before taking them out of the pans.
These homemade baked donuts are great plain or you dip them in a chocolate mixture with sprinkles. That is my kids favorite way to eat them. Didn’t eat all the donuts the first go around? Put any leftovers in an airtight container. They are good for a couple of days – that is if they make it that long. Depending on the size of your doughnut pan, this recipe will make a dozen to 1 1/2 dozen.
Optional Chocolate Glaze Recipe
In a saucepan cook and stir 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate and 3 tablespoons butter over low heat until melted. Remove from heat. Stir in 3 cups powdered sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla. Stir in 4 to 5 tablespoons warm water until the glaze coats the back of a spoon. Once you coat the donuts top them with your favorite sprinkles or nuts.
