If you’re like me, you probably like doughnuts but don’t like to think about the calories. A lot of those come from frying the dough. Well, with this, we skip the frying and bake it instead! From there, you can glaze them (like I did), fill them (with a piping tip and your favorite pudding or jam), ice them (with some Nutella or store-bought icing), or just eat them plain! You control the calories, and enjoy your ittby bitty homemade dough… nots!
While glazing them is the basic route, I recommend either stuffing or topping them with raspberry jam. I suppose making them into Boston Creme dough-nots would be just as good, but guess who didn’t have any vanilla pudding (it was me). However you like them, you can enjoy these little treats yourself or share them with friends as a cute brunch idea! If you want a chocolate version, add some cocoa powder to the mix. They’re easy, quick, and versatile (and the batter tastes really good)!
1 1/2 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Baking soda
1/3 cup Milk
1 tbsp Buttermilk
5 tbsp Salted butter, softened
1/3 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Powdered sugar
1 tbsp Vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and grease a 24-well mini muffin pan with butter and flour or baking spray.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and nutmeg. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and buttermilk. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and egg.
Add the dry ingredients and wet ingredients to the creamed mixture in the large bowl, alternating between dry and wet until everything is just combined. Make sure you don’t overmix it! The dough will be sticky and very elastic when it’s done.
Using a spoon or an ice cream scoop, fill the muffin wells with the batter and bake it for 10-15 minutes or until the dough is golden brown where it touches the pan.
Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a plate or cooling rack.
Mix up the glaze and drizzle it over the dough-nots (or top as you see fit), and enjoy! Needless to say, these go great with coffee or tea or by themselves.
