I made some delicious baked sugar doughnuts this morning and I wanted to share the recipe. I bought my doughnut pan from Sur La Table and it came with recipes on the cover. These doughnuts were so easy to make and I am so into baked doughnuts instead of fried.
Baked Cake Doughnuts:
2 cups cake flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk (I used Coconut milk)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons melted butter (I used Earth Balance)
Preheat oven to 425. Spray Doughnut Pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In large mixing bowl, sift together cake flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Add buttermilk, eggs and butter. Beat until just combined. fill each doughnut cup approximately 2/3 full.
Bake 7-9 minutes or until the top of the doughnuts spring back when touched. let cool in pan for 4-5 minutes before removing. Finish doughnuts with cinnamon sugar. Doughnuts are best served fresh!
2 tablesppons sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted (I used Earth Balance)
In a shallow bowl or plate, stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Dip the baked doughnut in melted butter and roll in the cinnamon sugar to coat!
