Baked Doughnuts Vanilla Glazed.Yes, you can bake your doughnuts and not fry them. And the cool thing about it, is that it is super simple to make.
Hey, guys, after I shared with you this Maple Walnut Blondie , I am in a mission today to make an equally attractive dessert in the form of this Vanilla Glazed Baked Doughnuts.
Just looking at the pictures, I fell in love with it and so are my kids…
Aren’t they cute and attractive? That pink sprinkles, remind me of Legally Blonde.
This Baked Vanilla Glazed Doughnut is long time coming. I was planning to make it 3 years ago when I first got my doughnut pan and for some reason, maybe laziness, hadn’t got around it. And for another reason, I am not really a doughnut eater because I am not a fan of oily doughnuts and deep fried ones, so I very seldom eat them.
But this Vanilla Glazed Doughnut is baked in the oven, no frying needed and I am happy to say that there is not a lot of butter in it, so I highly recommend it. And finally this Baked doughnuts happened. I actually got the recipe from As Easy As Apple Pie Blog and I thought gave it a try. And it was a success!!
This Baked Doughnuts Vanilla Glazed is consist of ingredients that we usually used for baking, so I assume, you can make this doughnut right now.
WHAT I WANT YOU TO PAY ATTENTION THOUGH IS THAT WHEN YOU PIPE THE BATTER, DO NOT FILL THE DOUGHNUT CAVITY TO THE BRIM… JUST FILL A FOURTH AND YOU WILL GET A BEAUTIFUL DOUGHNUT HOLE.
This doughnut you are seeing right now is actually my second batch because I made the mistake of filling the doughnut cavity to the brim and the doughnut hole was covered and it looks awful.
What I love about this doughnut:
1.it is not screaming sweet: it is not sweet at all and I think the star here is the butter which upped the dough tastes to the cake side. SO, the dough is sturdier and the doughnut itself is cake-y yet really soft and plump.
2. It is so easy and quick to make.
3. Cannot get over the color….They look beautiful. Love the color perfectly bake and love the pink color.
