Baked doughnuts

You have most likely seen doughnut cake pans and many people say the doughnuts that come out are to hard and don’t rise. I looked at a lot of different recipes and decided to mix a few for a light and soft doughnut that requires no rolling out. You could put it in a muffin tin as well. The pictured doughnuts are from the mini doughnut bake pan, you can see the flecks of spices in them.

Baked Spice Doughnuts

2 cups AP flour

½ c sugar

1 t cinnamon

½ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1 egg beaten

1 teaspoon yeast

1 egg

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

4 teaspoon oil

1 t baking powder
Oven at 325 degrees
Take a 1/c cup milk lukewarm add one Tablespoon of the sugar and dissolve the yeast. Let sit for a few minutes while you get the rest together.
Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, spices together add the egg, vanilla and oil add the milk. Mix well and let rest for about 10 minutes. It will be very loose and very sticky but it has some body to it. Spray with non stick spray. I used Bakers Joy with flour in it. Pour it into the molds. Let bake about 12 minutes. They should pop out easily but you could use a wooden skewer to help pop it out if you need to. You can frost them or dip them in cinnamon sugar. You can also leave them plain, whatever you like is wonderful.
