Baked Doughnuts



This past weekend I went on a road trip with 6 girlfriends to San Diego, it was a blast and everything that could go wrong did but that just made it better. It was a 9 hour drive, we drove through Friday night, we went surfing,shopping,to a padres game,the rock church, downtown Disney,and Hollywood strip. We are poor college students so we didn't eat out at all we lived off of snacks, peanut butter and jelly sandwich's and anything not refrigerated. Before we left I made these baked doughnuts which I would also like to call healthy doughnuts, you can use a muffin tin but i got a doughnut pan for it. These are really terrific, it doesn't stink up the house and you don't feel horrible after eating it, but it's something to get use to it's not the airy traditional doughnut, but something defiantly good for your health more so.

Baked Doughnuts:
2 C flour
3/4 granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 c buttermilk
2 eggs lightly beaten
2 tbs butter melted


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. spray muffin tins or doughnut molds with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl mix together flour,sugar, baking powder and salt. Add buttermilk, eggs, and and butter. Stir just until combined. Fill 2/3's of the way up. Bake 7-9 minutes or until springs back when touched. Let cool for 5 minutes and then finish off with glaze.
Glaze:
1 C powder sugar
1 tsp of vanilla
6 tbs milk
mix and then put on each doughnut, you could also just put cinnamon sugar on top too.




Here we are at the padres game with a Elvis group.

  1. I have always wanted to try making doughnuts, but my parents don't like the idea of me making a mess in the kitchen frying them. :) This recipe looks like the perfect substitute!
