Baked Cake Doughnuts

24 Apr


Being a Bostonian at heart I’ve always had an affinity for Dunkin’ Donuts. After indulging in a delicious strawberry frosted dunkin’ donut this past Saturday  I walked to Sur la Table and purchased a doughnut pan of my very own.


Baked Cake Doughnut recipe found on the Wilton Doughnut Pan

(makes 12 regular-sized doughnuts)

2 cups cake flour, sifted
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1.  Preheat oven to 425°F.  Spray the 6-cavity donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2.  Sift together cake flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a large mixing bowl.  Whisk in buttermilk, eggs, and butter and beat until just combined.  Fill each donut cup until about 2/3 full.
3.  Bake 7-9 minutes, or until the top of the donuts spring back when touched.  Cool in pan for about 4-5 minutes before removing from pan.  Complete donuts with either a dusting of powdered sugar, glaze, or cinnamon-sugar topping.  Best served fresh on the same day.


Sally’s Baking Addiction inspired my homemade strawberry glaze.


Cinnamon Sugar: 2 Tbsp. sugar, 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon, 2 Tbsp. melted butter. In a shallow bowl or plate, stir together the sugar and cinnamon.  Dip the baked doughnut in melted butter and roll in the mixture to coat.


Confectioners’ Sugar: Put 2/3 cup of confectioners’ Sugar in a resealable plastic bag.  Add a doughnut, close the bag, and shake to coat.  Repeat with remaining doughnuts.

      Mmm… sugary! I think Sur La Tab should pay you for this post, because you’ve driven us all to go out and buy a donut pan!

    Omg, those look amazing! I live a block from a Dunkin, and the delicious smell from the morning batch gets me on the walk to the subway! Definitely worth investing in a donut pan, for sure and the recipe seems simple enough!
