Cute Little Doughnuts

Vanilla Bean Doughnuts with Pink Sugar Glaze

OK, so these aren't cupcakes, but they are sooo cute! I got a doughnut pan on a whim at Bed, Bath, and Beyond one day and have been waiting for a time to use it. I got up early this morning and decided to try it out. 

Yield: 1 dozen donuts

Doughnuts (adapted from Sprinkle Bakes)
  • 1 cups flour 
  • 6 T sugar 
  • 1 tsp. baking powder 
  • 1/4 tsp. salt 
  • 6 T buttermilk 
  • 1/2 tsp. plus ½ Tablespoon vanilla bean paste 
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten 
  • 1 T butter, melted 
1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray donut pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2. In large mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

3. Add buttermilk, eggs, vanilla extract, vanilla seeds and butter and beat until just combined.

4. Fill each donut cup approximately 1/2 full. (its easiest if you use a piping bag)

5. Bake 5 minutes or until the top of the donuts spring back when touched.

6. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing.

7. Finish doughnuts with vanilla glaze and sprinkles 

Into the oven they go
And out they come!
Pink Vanilla Glaze: 
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 
  • 1 1/2 T milk 
  • ½ tsp. vanilla bean paste 
  • 4 drops of liquid red food coloring 
  • Pink Sprinkles 

1. In small bowl, stir together sugar, milk and vanilla extract until sugar is completely dissolved.

2. Add food coloring and stir until color is uniform.

3. Dip cooled donuts into glaze, lift and twist out.

4. Let drip on cooling rack with parchment paper beneath.

5. Sprinkle on the sprinkles.

Complete with Glaze and Sprinkles!

This recipe was super easy, and the Doughnuts taste great! I'm gonna have to make this a weekend morning routine! : )
