Google+ That Flour Child: Funfetti Baked Donuts

Funfetti Baked Donuts

I'm back at it with my new donut pan.  This time with sprinkles!  Because I live by the belief that sprinkles can solve anything.

I used my leftover sprinkles from these cookies because that's all I had on my shelf.  And I will admit that the black sprinkles made these donuts looks a little grey once they started to bleed, but they still tasted delicious!

My first glaze experience, and let me tell you glazed donuts are just better.  These babies are double dipped in warm glaze for the perfect coating.

I adapted the recipe from Sally's Baking Addiction.
For the donut you need:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles
For the glaze:
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • extra sprinkles for on top

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
You want to mix up the dry ingredients in one bowl, set it aside and whisk the wet ingredients together in another bowl.  Then add the dry to the wet but don't over mix (dough is very thick).  Next, fold in the sprinkles to limit the colours bleeding as much as possible.  Put the dough into a Ziploc bag, cut the corner and pipe it into a well greased donut pan (or muffin tin).
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until lightly brown around the edges.
Combine all ingredients for the glaze in a small saucepan and turn it on low.  Stir until sugar is dissolved and dip each of the donuts in on one side.  Then dunk all the donuts one more time, sprinkle with sprinkles and let cool slightly.  But make sure to eat these while they're still warm!

I'm finding that donuts only really taste good eaten the same day they are made, although most recipes say you can keep them in an airtight container for up to 2 days.  But this is okay because most recipes only make about 6-8 donuts. We enjoyed this sweet donuts while watching the Bachelor last night (Nurse Nikki or Andi for the win).

Any flavour suggestions for next?
I'm thinking something with chocolate or fruit!
