However, I do like to find different uses for pans. This morning, I decided to make doughnut holes for breakfast using my new cake pop pan. I searched for a cake doughnut recipe that can be baked in the oven.
I will be honest, the first batch, were ok but not great. I adjusted the oven temperature, and baking time and the second batch was much better. I also have a disclaimer, if you are looking for a taste similar to a fried doughnut, this is not for you. It definetly bears more similarity to a muffin texture. The kids and Jay liked them, and they were simple enough to make, so I thought I would share them :)
Linking to these parties.
recipe (yields 3 dozen)
2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
2 c. powder sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 to 2 tbsp. milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray your cake pop pan with baking spray that contains flour (this is a tip from the manufacturer). Mix all your dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl or large measuring cup combine the wet ingredients. Slowly add the wet to the dry and mix with a large spatula until combined.
Using a small cookie scoop, or about 2 teaspoons full of batter, fill each well in the pan. Place the lid on it and secure the clips.
Bake for 15 to 16 minutes. Allow to cool about a minute and remove the top of the pan. Place on a cooling rack.
In a large measuring cup, combine the ingredients for the glaze. Add a tablespoon of milk at a time until you reached your desired consistency. Don't worry if the glaze is too thin, just add a little more sugar.
Submerge the doughnut holes in the glaze. With a fork pull the doughnut from the glaze and tap it lighlty on the top of the measuring cup. This will allow the excess glaze to run off.
