I have been craving donuts lately but I did not want to settle for the fried ones. So, I bought a set of donut pans and got busy baking to satisfy my sweet tooth. For these donuts I used a basic cake recipe and cut back on the sugar and oil.
Wow! These baked donuts turned out to be so delicious and I am quite proud of myself. Hubby and I sat down to some good home-brewed coffee and freshly baked donuts. Enjoy!
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/4 tsp baking powder
2 large eggs (Or egg substitute) use 1/2 cup applesauce to replace eggs
in med bowl whisk wet ingredients
make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients. Mix until combine. (batter will be a little lumpy)
Bake, rotating pans halfway for 10 -12 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool.
Chocolate topping: Melt semi sweet chocolate chips for chocolate topping. No double boiler no problem. Just fill pot with water, insert a glass bowl, boil water and watch your chocolate melt.
Sugar Topping: Fill bowl with sugar, coat donut with oil, roll in sugar mixture.
