Today is National Donut Day (June 3). Made these donuts for the occasion. Light and fluffy and baked. Many Donut shops are giving freebies, like Krispy Kremes and Dunkin Doughnuts!
1 1/3 cup cake flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of ground nutmeg
pinch of salt
2 small eggs
1 tablespoon butter a plus 2 teaspoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons cocoa powder ( more if needed
Directions for Donuts: pre-heat oven at 400 degrees
Oil or spray the mini donut pan with a baking spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl mix flour, sugar and baking powder, nutmeg and salt.
Beat eggs and pour into the mixture. Melt butter and cool than pour into cake mixture.
If making chocolate donuts divide batter into two parts. Add cocoa powder to one part and mix well.
Use a piping bag or if using a plastic sandwich bag, cut a small hole on the corner of the bag. Spoon batter into the donut hole pan. Bake 6 minutes or until done, when the donut springs back to touch.
