It’s National Doughnut Day.
Do you want one? I do! Of course, we have the perfect excuse… it’s Friday!
USA Today has released a list of which establishments are giving away free treats today. They include Krispy Kreme, Dunkin’ Doughnuts, and more.
When a doughnut craving hits and you’re unwilling to part with your healthy goals, the following recipe is “healthier” than say, one of our favorite doughnut haunts.
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup milk
2 cups flour (Like King Arthur, Bob’s Red Mill)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Prepare doughnut hole pan or mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Cream oil, butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar and egg. Add vanilla and milk, stir well. Sift dry ingredients and add gradually to the creamed mixture. Combine thoroughly.
Fill tins 2/3 full with batter. Bake 15-17 minutes.
While doughnuts are baking, melt the butter for the topping and set aside. Add the sugar and cinnamon to a lunch-size paper bag.
While the doughnuts are still warm, place 4 or 5 at a time in the paper bag with cinnamon-sugar.
Shake gently to coat the holes with the cinnamon-sugar. If the holes have cooled too much and aren’t holding the sugar, spritz them very lightly with a bit of water, then shake.
