Easy Oven Baked Donuts

These soft and delicious baked donuts, dipped in homemade glaze and topped with sprinkles are the perfect stay at home donut! Throw a donut party with your kiddos, family, roommates, or whom ever is in your household!

Many of us might be spending more time at home due to what is going on in the world right now. We have been advised to limit social interactions, only to go out if we really need to. In other terms, social distancing. This might be hard for some of us. We are right there with you!

Getting a little creative

This is a hard time for many of us. Let’s try to make this the best time that we can. What better way to create smiles then to bake some donuts!! The sweet smell and taste will lift everyones spirits.

This is a perfect baking project for your family, roommates, kiddos, or whomever lives in your household!!

Instructions

Donut Batter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F*. Spray a donut pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. (Don’t have a donut pan? Thats okay! Turn a cupcake pan upside down and spray it!)

In a large bowl, whisk together choice of flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

 In a small bowl, whisk together egg (or vegan egg replacement), milk of choice, melted butter, an vanilla. Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients, and stir together. All ingredients will be combined. (Try not to over-mix, over mixing can cause non-fluffy donuts!)

Spoon batter into a large ziplock bag or pastry pipette. Cut the corner off at the bottom of the ziplock bag or pastry pipette. Pipe into each donut cavity. (if using other side of cupcake try, follow the cirlce formation of the cupcake tray with the pipette or ziplock.) Fill about 3/4 way.

Bake in over for 8-10 minutes.

Take out of oven, place onto a wire rack until cool enough to handle.

The Glaze

In a medium bowl whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla and salt. Add 1 tablespoon of milk, and whisk. If you prefer your glaze thicker, you can leave it as is. If you like it thinner add, 1/4 teaspoon of milk at a time until the desired consistency is reached.  Add food coloring of choice.

Let’s Make It A Party

Gather everyone to decorate these precious donuts! Dip the donuts in the glaze. Return back onto rack. Immediately top with sprinkles. Allow glaze to set at room temperature for about 15-20 minutes. Or enjoy after glazing!

Recipe note: Like you’re donuts slightly crispy? After baking you can fry them in oil for a minute on each side. Then place on wire rack to cool down. Then add icing!

Don’t like icing? That’s okay! A great alternative is melting chocolate. Melt about a cup of you favorite chocolate in the microwave. Dip donuts into it. Add sprinkles immediately after. Let dry at room temperature for 20 minutes!
