Today's National Donut Day! Who doesn't love a day that revolves around donuts? I have been looking for different varieties of baked donuts, there's really no end to what can be made. These donuts are delicious! I love the cinnamon bun flavor and the fact that they're glazed with a delicious vanilla cream cheese glaze. I have a feeling the half dozen donuts I made will be gone in no time at all.
1 cup flour
4 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
6 Tbsp butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tsp (or more) milk, half and half
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease a donut pan and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugars, baking powder and cinnamon. Add in the wet ingredients - butter, egg, vanilla and melted butter. Stir to combine all the ingredients. Place the batter into a ziplock bag. Snip the corner and pipe the batter into the donut pan, filling each 3/4 way full.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the donuts spring back and are lightly browned. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
While the donuts are cooling, make the glaze. Combine all the glaze ingredients and whip together with a whisk. After the donuts have cooled for 5 minutes or so, remove from the pan and dip into the glaze. Place on a wire cooling rack to continue cooling. Devour!
