Red Velvet Baked Donuts

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
2 eggs
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.

Enjoy!!  Susan

  7. These look amazing. I'm close to licking the screen! I'm awaiting on Amazon delivering my Wilton donut pan (I'm in the UK and they don't stock them here so have to buy from the US with over inflated shipping costs, pfftt!)

    Finding this recipe and your blog just seems like fate and some higher beings' way of telling me this should be my donut pans' first recipe... LOL. Thanks for sharing.

    I found you through 'Wednesday Extravaganza' link party vote page. I'd also love if you stopped by and shared these and any other dessert creations on my weekly link party Sugar & Slice Sunday. The link party starts on Sunday (LIVE now) and closes on Thursday.
