These are fun to make and even more fun to eat.
Super easy baked doughnuts! Avoid that oily smelly mess of fried doughnuts.
To make these baked donuts, you will need a stand mixer – the batter can be pretty thick at first and it has to be mixed well or you’ll end up with lumps in your donuts.
Once the batter is ready, it’ll still be on the thick side so I prefer to pipe the batter into the donut pan. It makes it more even and less messy. If you don’t have a piping bag, you should add one or two to your kitchen drawer because they can be pretty handy. Filling a ziplock bag and snipping off the corner eventually will make it pop sending batter or frosting all over your hands, trust me!
You can dip your baked donuts in a traditional powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla glaze. But you could also use chocolate ganache, dulce de leche, raspberry glaze or cinnamon sugar.
PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 12 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME: 27 MINUTES
10 tbsp soft butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
4 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup raspberry jam
1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup strawberry yogurt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray a donut pan generously with nonstick spray.
Using a stand mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar until creamy, about 4-5 minutes on high speed.
Add the eggs one at a time scraping down the sides of the bowl as you go.
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder.
Gradually add the flour to the bowl on low speed until all of it has been incorporated.
Add the vanilla, raspberry jam, milk and yogurt, and mix until well combined making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as you go.
Using a piping bag, fill the spaces in the donut pan and bake in the oven for about 12 minutes and the top of the donuts are slightly springy.
Let the donuts cool for 5 minutes and then carefully lift them from the pan to a wire cooling rack.
Repeat with the rest of the batter making sure to spray the pan before you fill it each time.
To make the glaze combine the powdered sugar, milk, vanilla, and red coloring with a fork in a microwave-safe bowl.
Heat in the microwave for about 20 seconds or when the glaze becomes slightly runny. If the glaze is too thick when you dip a donut into it, just add some more time in the microwave mixing with the fork afterward.
Dip each donut into the glaze while gently taking off the excess glaze with a finger or spatula. Make sure to dip the donuts into the sprinkles when the glaze is still warm or they won’t stick as well.
Repeat until all the donuts have been glazed and decorated.
