Donut Recipe

While visiting Florida, I purchase 2 of these donut pans at my favorite Kitchen Store (Sur Table)because I wanted to be able to bake donuts for Jon.  Today, I tried them and they turn out great (recipe below) and he loved them. 

 I finished getting my taxes ready today for my tax appointment on Friday.  What a relief to get that done so that I can move on to things that are much more fun.  I want to start working on Lori's (my daughter) Kitchen Shower invitations.  I am planning a brunch so I  need to get my menu decided and figure out what I need to do to be ready.  Seems it takes me longer these days to do things.  Anyone else have issues like that besides me???????



Ina's Cinnamon Baked Doughnuts

12 doughnuts

  • Baking spray with flour, such as Baker's Joy
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 extra-large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • For the topping:
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 doughnut pans well.

Into a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, melted butter, and vanilla. Stir the wet mixture into the dry ingredients until just combined.

Spoon the batter into the baking pans, filling each one a little more than three-quarters full. Bake for 17 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then tap the doughnuts out onto a sheet pan.

For the topping, melt the 8 tablespoons of butter in an 8-inch saute pan. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Dip each doughnut first in the butter and then in the cinnamon sugar, either on one side or both sides.

Thanks for the donut recipe Joan will have to try it. Sounds like your keeping busy after vacation. Hope you get to your fun stuff soon. I
also take quadruple the time to get the smallest of things done, slow
motion it feels like.

Wow! These look scrumptious! I had no idea you could "bake" donuts. What a great idea and way healthier too. Great stuff. Hope you are well! Best, Curt
