Baked Vanilla Doughnuts

Baked doughnuts have become very popular among the food bloggers. I decided to get in on the action. I asked for a doughnut pan for Christmas and made some last week. They were super easy and it made just enough for us each to have one doughnut. They are no Krispy Kremes, but better for you and still delicious. They have a cake-like doughnut texture but not so heavy. Now I need to find a chocolate recipe. (says the Mr.)

Recipe from Fake Ginger

For the doughnuts
1 cup of all purpose flour
6 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
6 Tbsp buttermilk
1 egg
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 Tbsp melted butter

For the Glaze
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-2 tsp heavy cream (I ended up using almost 5 to get the right consistency)
sprinkles (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a doughnut pan.
In a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in milk, eggs, vanilla, butter. Beat together until well blended. 
Using a pastry bag fitted with a large round tip (or a large Ziploc bag with the tip cut off) pipe the batter into a 6 doughnut pan. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated oven, until doughnuts spring back when touched. Allow to cool in pan slightly before removing.
To make the glaze, blend confectioners sugar, vanilla, and cream adding 1 tsp at a time until desired consistency. Dip doughnuts into glaze, add sprinkles. Enjoy.
