Baked Pumpkin Pie Spice Donuts

21 Mar

BeFunky_IMG_2567.jpgSo this is one of those recipes I found online, tried, and realized its a masterpiece I should be making every week. Regular donuts are packed with sugar and they’re fried; literally everything that’s bad for you. Baked donuts are more like little cakes, they’re not packed with sugar and they are not that bad for you. I follow the recipe on this link: http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/breads/baked-spice-doughnuts/  and let me tell you they come out incredible every time. If you’ve never seen a donut pan, this is what it looks like:BeFunky_IMG_2843.jpg

 

Definitely get one, it’s so much easier to make donuts with it. I’m considering getting a mini donut pan. Yes, yes they also have mini donut pans which are super cute. Make sure you grease them before pouring the batter and you’re golden. I am copy pasting the recipe on the link above just in case you’re lazy and don’t feel like going to another website to look at the recipe. Just know that all the credit goes to whoever posted this recipe on Tasty Kitchen 🙂

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅓ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1-½ teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2 Tablespoons Cold Unsalted Butter, Sliced
  • 1 whole Egg, Gently Beaten
  • ¼ cups Plain Yogurt
  • ¼ cups Scalded Milk
  • Powdered Sugar (for Sprinkling)

Quick note: Instead of just powdered sugar I used powdered sugar mixed with pumpkin pie spice. It gives it a great kick!

 

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and pumpkin pie spice). Now, cut in the cold butter, working with your hands to incorporate everything until the mixture feels like sand.

Pour in the egg, yogurt and milk and stir to combine. Be careful not to over-mix!

Pipe into a doughnut pan and bake for fifteen minutes, or until springy.

Once out of the oven, sift powdered sugar over the tops and enjoy.

    Eating donuts without messing up my sugar metabolism and without much guilt? I’m definitely getting a doughnut pan and trying this!

    He handed one to me and said to sprinkle it lightly into the
    sand all around the smaller dumpster while he would cover the larger dumpster
    area. One night the skunk had not shown up by
    the time Michael went to bed at 11 PM. Anchors should be set
    at diverse positions around the boat with double rope applied to each, with a piece of
    garden hose to protect the rope from fraying at points where it may rub against boat
    hardware.

    We had to change everything about how we live and what we eat every
    day – quickly. If you have a sweet tooth, some warmed-up pie filling on top
    of a pancake really hits the spot. Applesauce is a great no-fat low-sugar alternative panckae topping.
