Baked Cake Donuts

Vanilla Cake Donuts

1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
2 1/2 Cups unbleached all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup milk at room temperature

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Use either a stand mixer or hand mixer and beat butter and sugar on medium high until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Reduce speed and add eggs and vanilla, beating until combined.  Add flour mixture half at a time, alternating with milk and beat until just combined.

Transfer the batter to a pipping bag or a resealable plastic bag and snip a hole in one corner of the bag.  Fill pan to 3/4 full.

Bake for about 12 minutes.  Let cool for 5 minutes in pan and then transfer to wire cooling rack.  Let cool about 10 minutes and then do preferred toppings.  The possibilities are endless.

The donuts I did today were cinnamon sugar and maple glaze.

Maple Glaze:

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons milk
4 tablespoons maple syrup
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

This is just the basic recipe. The options of donut flavor and glaze are endless.
