    Oh they look sooo good!

    I featured your egg salad on my blog over the weekend. I am still dreaming about making it!

    Your food always makes me hungry!

      I am clearly half asleep and have too many blogs open that I am reading simultaneously b/c I just realized I left the wrong comment to you about the egg salad. Sorry! :)

    I ordered two doughnut pans on amazon like 2 months ago and haven’t got them yet. Lora’s baked doughnuts are on my to-bake list and now these are too! So pretty :)

    Oh they look lovely with the sprinkles and all! And the taste of melted vanilla ice cream sounds fan-freakin’tastic to me :D But bah, I can’t even find heavy cream in the supermarkets around me. I gotta look harder >_<

    We don’t have Krispy Kreme’s in Perth. And I rarely buy doughnuts when I’m out. I’m lucky if we grab some on the way back from Melbourne or Sydney.

    But home made doughnuts, that aren’t fried, that take less than 20minutes and icing that tastes like melted ice cream!? OH MY!

    I think my donut pan needs to be put to use this weekend. These would be an adorable addition to Easter brunch!

    These look so fun to make! And, I like that only 1 cup of flour is needed.

    Ok I really need to get on this baked doughnut craze. They all look so delicious, like little cupcakes but… doughnuts! I guess doughnuts are more portable and less messy. Anyways, thanks for the ideas, and great photos!

    Here is a recipe for baked doughnuts using yeast. You don’t need a doughnut pan to make these. I haven’t made them for some time, but all this talk about baked doughnuts makes me want to make them again.

    No Fry Doughnuts

    2 pkg. active dry yeast
    1/4 c. warm water
    1 1/2 c. milk, scalded and cooled
    1/2 c. sugar
    1 t. salt
    1 t. nutmeg
    1/4 t. cinnamon
    2 eggs
    1/3 c. shortening
    4 1/2 c. flour
    1/4 c. butter, melted

    Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, sugar, salt, splice, eggs, shortening, and 2 c. flour. Blend 30 seconds on low speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl. Beat2 min. at medium speed, scraping bowl. Stir in remaining flour until mixture is smooth. Cover, let rise 1 hour. Turn out onto well floured surface. Roll around lightly to coat with flour (dough will be soft). With floured, stockinette covered rolling pin, gently roll dough out to 1/2-inch. If you don’t have this equipment, you can pat out the dough with floured hands. Cut with floured doughnut cutter. If you don’t have a doughnut cutter, cut with a large round cookie cutter and call them Bismarks instead of doughnuts. Lift carefully with spatula and place 2-in. apart on greased baking sheet. Brush with some of the melted butter. Cover, let rise 20 min. Bake in a 425 degree oven 8-10 min. Immediately brush
    with remaining melted butter and shake in cinnamon-sugar or spread with glaze.
    Makes 1 1/2-2 dozen. Eat same day or freeze up to 1 month. Wrap tightly in foil. Thaw 2 hours at room temperature or heat sugared doughnuts in 400 degree oven 10 min.
    High Altitude: Decrease flour to 1 1/4 c.

    Chocolate Doughnuts: Omit spices. Stir in 1/2 c. cocoa with first addition of flour. After baking, shake for sugared doughnuts or spread with glaze.

    Applesauce Doughnuts: Use 1 1/2 c. lukewarm applesauce instead of milk. Use 1 t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. nutmeg, and 1/2 t. cloves for the spices.

    Cinnamon-Sugar: Combine 1/2 c. sugar and 1/2-1 t. cinnamon

    Vanilla Glaze
    1/2 c. butter or margarine
    2 c. confectioner’s sugar
    1 1/2 t. vanilla
    4-6 T. hot water

    Melt butter or margarine. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Mix in hot water, 1 tablespoon at a time until glaze is of desired consistency.

    Maple Glaze. Add 1 t. maple flavoring

    Chocolate Glaze. Melt 2/3 c. semisweet chocolate chips with the butter or margarine.

    I love my donut pan and do not feel it is a waste of money in any way. I am on the hunt for new recipes. I even use muffin recipes and they turn out great

    It is after 5am in the morning, both my kids are awake from the clock time change. Your recipe is making my mouth water and has put a spring in my step as I am now definitely trying these! I don’t have a doughnut pan but figure I’ll make doughnut balls.
    Thank you!

    I just made them! I didn’t have a doughnut pan so I substituted a mini muffin pan. They worked out pretty well! If you are making these for more than two people then I advise you double or tripe the recipe. It doesn’t make very many. Also if you triple the recipe then double the frosting if you’re a frosting lover like me! It was a little short on mine. The icing really does melt like ice cream! It was the best icing I’ve ever tasted! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!

    Made these today, loved em! I substitued the flour with 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1/4 cup each of chickpea and almond flour. I also replaced the buttermilk with 3 T of greek yogurt and 3T of almond milk. Was able to make 11 mini donuts using an electric mini donut maker. Will have to double the recipe next time!
