Baked Donuts






Who doesn't love donuts or is it doughnuts. I guess it all depends on where you're from and what you prefer.
 I remember as a kid my mother bringing home Dunkin Donuts and couldn't wait to dig into that box. What a treat.  I'd eat them for breakfast or for a desert didn't matter much to me as long as they were covered in a sweet glaze and covered with sprinkles. 
Today... having to watch those fat and calorie intake ugh I was very happily surprised to find this recipe for baked donuts. These do not require the dough to rise or to fry in grease. And actually there is only 2 Tablespoons of oil used in this recipe.


RECIPE

PRE HEAT 325

2 Cups Flour
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 large eggs
3/4 milk
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
If chocolate is what you're after decrease flour to 1 1/2 Cups and add 1/2 cocoa
and add 2 Tablespoons extra milk
In a large bowl combine all dry ingrediants give them a good stir. In a small bowl beat eggs until light in color add milk, vanilla and oil.. Add the wet ingrediants to the dry. Mix just until combined. Fill your donut pan about 3/4 full and bake 8-10 minutes.
These are so light and tasty you wont feel guilty about having 2. 
Dust with powdered sugar or with a glaze.









Glaze
1 Cup powdered sugar
3-4 Tablespoons milk-depending on how thick or thin you want it.
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

This is a donut pan I bought at WalMart but you can purchase them at any cake supply store like Micheals or Joann Fabrics.
