Baked Donuts

I've made homemade donuts before but did it the old fashioned way - fried. While I don't mind eating a fried donut (they are SO good), I have wanted to try baked donuts.

I received a donut pan for Christmas and was excited to use it. Of course, I kept forgetting about it and didn't end up making donuts until last weekend.

Let me tell you... these are SO good! Very easy to prepare and incredibly delicious. Anya and I decorated them with Nutella, melted white chocolate, cinnamon/sugar, and sprinkles. It was a sweet Sunday breakfast!

Baked Donuts
Adapted from All Recipes

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 TBSP butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease a donut pan.

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt. Stir in milk, eggs, vanilla and shortening. Beat together until well blended.

Fill each donut cup approximately 3/4 full. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until doughnuts spring back when touched. Allow to cool slightly before removing from pan.

Glaze/decorate as desired.

I have a donut pan in my shopping list right now - just need to make a Bed Bath & Beyond run or something so I can FIND one!! I would love to do homemade donuts, but would feel much better about baking them than frying - great post! :)
