Baked Donuts

I love a leisurely day of baking! Not baking because we need bread or granola for breakfast, but baking out of sheer pleasure. No rush!

This Saturday, I was craving donuts for breakfast! Well, we had them for lunch, but...who keeps track on lazy, rainy Saturdays anyway? Not me!


Baked Donuts

recipe from donut baking pan packaging


1 1/4 cups cake flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/4 tsp. baking powder {aluminum free}

1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg {fresh ground is BEST!}

3/4 tsp. salt

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 1/2 Tbsp. butter, melted


Preheat oven to 425*.

Mix dry ingredients together.

Add wet ingredients.

Stir until combined.

Grease mini donut pan.

Fill donut cup about half full.

Bake about 4 minutes.

Let cool a bit.

Top with favorite glaze and don't forget the SPRINKLES!

My favorite donut glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. milk
1/8 tsp. oil

Mix all together until drizzly. Dip donuts in glaze and sprinkle immediately with sprinkles, or the pretties wont stick...and then, they just wont be as cute.

*To gift...simply put them into a little box, add a tag and don't forget the VALENTINE twine.
*We maade the larger donuts, too, but we all LOVED the little ones BESTEST!

Happy Tuesday!


  1. Lisa, will these work if you just put them on a silpat and cut a hole in the center?

  2. Hi Sharon...I'm not sure. I haven't used this batter for that, but it is thick like my eclair batter...maybe you could pipe the batter onto the silpat in a circle???
    I had a little helper when I made these a couple of years ago and I had her pipe the batter into the pan as it was less messy and easier to fill. Please let me know if you try it!! :)

  3. That is a great recipe. I have never had baked donuts before but they sound wonderful-xo Diana

  4. Wondering if you could use a mini muffin pan for these? I just might try them tomorrow morning.

    Oh by the way, I met you on Friday at the Moms' Tea. I was the friend of Stacee Taft.

    1. Hi Mary Lou...it was nice meeting you. :)
      I am sure they would turn out great. Maybe a bit like the donut holes.
      You will have to let me know how they turn out if you try them. I'm sure they will be super cute!!!

  5. It is the best time to make some plans for the long run and it's time to be happy. I've learn this put up and if
    I may I desire to counsel you some fascinating things or suggestions.
    Perhaps you can write subsequent articles relating to this article.
    I wish to read even more issues approximately it!
