Tempting Cake Donuts

13 Jun

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!

 
 
Cake Donut Recipe
2 cups all-purpose flour
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
3/4 cup skim milk (or soy, coconut or rice dream)
1/2 cup canola oil

 
lightly grease donut pans ( I have round and long john)
 
In large bowl mix dry ingredients
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)
 
 
Fill  baggie with cake mixture, cut the corner, squeeze mixture into donut slots.
 
 
 
 

Bake, rotating pans halfway for 10 -12 minutes or until lightly golden. Let cool.

Toppings

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.
