Baked Funfetti Donuts

1

A few weeks ago I was on Amazon and found this donut pan and this mini cast iron skillet (that’s for another post), which I just HAD to buy. When the donut pan arrived at my door I knew I wanted to make donuts (duh!), but the question was, what kind of donuts.  So, what is a girl to do when she doesn’t know what kind of donuts to make? She goes to the internet, of course.  This is where I will tell you that  I love the internet! Yes, I realize I am not the only one that loves the internet.  But I just wanted to share my adoration with the miracle that we call The Internet,  I mean where else can you buy a donut pan and find a recipe to make donuts in the donut pan?!

This recipe is courtesy of Sally’s Baking Addiction which I found on Pinterest.  Pinterest is another reason why I love the World Wide Web so damn much!  Anyhow, back to the donuts.  These donuts are super easy to make and they are somewhat healthy for you since they are baked.  That should be reason enough to eat these donuts.

Baked Funfetti Donuts

slightly adapted from sally's baking addiction

Ingredients:

donuts
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1 large egg
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup rainbow sprinkles

glaze
1/4 cup milk
2 cups confectioners' (powdered) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
extra sprinkles to sprinkle on top, optional

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Spray a donut pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.

make the donuts

whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and granulated sugar together in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Whisk the milk, yogurt, and egg together until smooth. Add the melted butter and vanilla, whisking until fully combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Do not overmix. The batter will be very thick. Fold in the sprinkles gently to ensure they do not bleed their color.

Spoon the batter into the donut cups or cut a corner off the bottom of the bag and pipe the batter into each donut cup, filling 2 ∕ 3 –3 ∕ 4 of the way full.

Bake for 9–10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Allow the donuts to slightly cool before glazing.

for the glaze

Combine the glaze ingredients in a medium saucepan over low heat. Whisk until the glaze is smooth. Remove from heat and immediately begin dunking the donuts, one by one, into the glaze. I simply dropped each donut into the saucepan and moved it around to coat evenly. Transfer each donut to a wire rack over a baking sheet to catch the glaze drippings. Take each donut and dunk again if you have enough glaze leftover. Sprinkle with additional sprinkles.
