I always like to make baked donuts. They only take a few minutes to get the batter together and cook for less than 10 minutes. These are a variation of the Baked Donuts with Almond Glaze or the Baked Oreo Donuts that I have made and are perfect for Valentine's Day.
2 cups cake flour, sifted
3/4 cups sugar
2 tsp baking powder
5 tbsp unsweetened chocolate
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp red food coloring
2 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 tsp almond extract
4 tbsp heavy cream
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray donut pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, mix together cake flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and unsweetened chocolate. Add buttermilk, eggs, butter and red food coloring. Beat until just combined.
Fill each donut hole approximately 3/4 full.
Bake for 7-9 minutes or until the top of the donuts spring back when touched. Let cool in pan for 4 minutes before removing onto cooling rack.
Make glaze for donuts but combining sugar, almond extract and heavy cream in a small bowl. Add more cream if needed until you have desired consistency. Dip the top of donut into glaze and set on cooling rack. Cover with sprinkles. Dry finished donut on cooling rack for 2 hours until glaze hardens. Baked donuts are best when eaten within a day or two of making them.
