Baked Doughnuts
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups AP flour
  • 1½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1¼ cup milk
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
For toppings
  • ½ cup butter (1 stick), melted
  • ½ cup granulated sugar mixed with ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • OR
  • 1 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar (powdered sugar)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray doughnut pan with non-stick cooking spray (I only have one 6-doughnut pan so I just had to make the doughnuts in batches)
  2. In a large bowl whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Then in a small bowl whisk together the egg, milk, melted butter and vanilla extract. Take the wet ingredients and add them to the dry ingredient bowl. Mix together until just combined.
  3. Spoon the batter into prepared donut pans filling about ¾ths the way.
  4. Bake for 15-17 minutes until doughnuts spring back when poked.
  5. Let doughnuts cool for 5 minutes.
  6. Prepare the cinnamon and sugar mixture or the confectioners’ sugar for the topping in a medium sized bowl. If you want both cinnamon sugar and powdered doughnuts half the ingredients and put in two different bowls
  7. Dip both sides of doughnuts in melted butter and then sugar (either cinnamon sugar and confectioners.)
