Baked Spice Donuts

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

I am sharing this with:


  1. cinnamon and sugar are my FAV's too...have a great week!

  2. Love the idea of 'baked' donuts!I love donuts but try to stay away from the ones that are deep-fried(although they taste too good!) to keep the calories in check.Your recipe seems to be just right for me and the sugar and cinnamon in melted butter is making me drool already ;)Your grand kids must have had a lovely time gorging on them:)

  3. Mmmm now I want to make these and I really should not. What a funny flower measurement 7/8. Why didn't they round up to a cup I wonder.

  4. They really do look yummy! I love that you've baked, rather than fried them. I really have to try these. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  5. These would be so good with a cup of coffee or tea!

  6. Thanks so much for visiting and your comments. These look luscious, and I just have one question: I have never heard of dried buttermilk powder. Where do you get it? I often use KA flour, especially the bread flour for yeast bread and pizza crust. For biscuits, I like White Lily.

  7. These look so pretty and sound very good! I'm with you, I'll choose almonds as my topping!

  8. These look yummy.....I'd love for you to share them @CountryMommaCooks Link & Greet party going on now-Sunday midnight…

  9. Oh Kitty, those donuts look wonderful, I really love the spice mix in the recipe, wish I had one well maybe two right now. Hope you are having a great week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
    Come Back Soon!

  10. I have been dying to try homemade donuts. I think it would be a good idea to start out with a baked recipe rather than a fried recipe!
