|Kids get sprinkles & Nana gets almonds!|
This recipe comes from King Arthur Flour & it is so light & perfectly spiced! The original recipe can be found here. I made this when three of my grandchildren spent the night. I mixed all the dry ingredients in one bowl the night before, so all that was left to do was add the wet ingredients in the morning. I used canned frosting on some (sometimes life just needs canned frosting!!) and sugar & cinnamon on some (first dipped in melted butter). These are REALLY yummy!
7/8 cup unbleached flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 t. baking powder
1/8 t. nutmeg
1 t. cinnamon
3 T. dried buttermilk powder
2 large eggs
3 T. vegetable oil
2 T. water
Whisk together all the dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, oil & water until foamy.
Pour the liquid ingredients in all at once into the dry ingredients & stir just until combined.
Butter or grease (I sprayed) the donut pan. Fill each donut form half full.
Bake the donuts in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. When done, they'll spring back when lightly touched.
Remove the donuts from the oven & remove them from the pan. Allow to cool on rack. Dip in melted butter & coat with sugar & cinnamon or frost with vanilla or chocolate frosting. Decorate with sprinkles, nuts, coconut, etc.
Makes 6 donuts
