Baked Buttermilk Doughnuts w/ Orange Glaze

Jan 14 2015

by Tamara Eckles

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great holiday season. I can’t believe Christmas and New Year’s Eve have come and gone and we are now in 2015! I’m kicking off this new year with a healthier version of doughnuts. I know most people are setting healthier eating goals and I am totally onboard with that. I think eating healthy and exercising should be a lifestyle goal with a little indulgence along the way. 🙂

You don’t have to give up your sweet tooth this month while you’re shifting your eating goals. Try these easy to make baked doughnuts. These doughnuts are very moist and the fact that they are baked and not fried make them a great choice to satisfy a doughnut craving without all of the fried dough guilt!

P.S. You will need a doughnut pan for this, but don’t fret, they aren’t that expensive and you can find them from Joanne’s or Michael’s.

 

Buttermilk Doughnut

 

Baked Buttermilk Doughnuts with Orange Glaze adapted from Joy the Baker

 

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg

1/3 cup sugar

2 tbsp unsalted butter

1 large egg

1/2 cup buttermilk

1tsp vanilla extract
Orange Glaze

1 cup powdered sugar

2-3 tbsp orange juice
Directions

Pre-heat your love to 350 degrees. Lightly spray your doughnut pan with cooking spray until you’re ready to fill with the doughnut batter.

To prepare the browned butter, add the unsalted butter to a small sauce pan and melt over medium heat until the butter browns and becomes fragrant. Make sure you watch the butter to insure it doesn’t burn. Remove the butter from the stove and place in a bowl until ready to add to the doughnut mixture.

In a bowl whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and sugar.

In small bowl add the egg, buttermilk and vanilla and whisked well. Once whisked together whisk in the browned butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until combined. Make sure not to over mix.

With a small spoon, add the batter to the doughnut pan, being careful not to overfill. Bake 8-10 minutes being sure to check the doughnuts to insure they don’t over bake. Remove from the oven and cool completely.

For the glaze, add the powdered sugar to a bowl and add 2 tablespoons of orange juice. Mix together with a fork until you have a glaze. If the glaze if too thick, add more orange juice, but don’t add too much. You don’t want your glaze to be too thin.

Once the glaze if finished and the doughnuts have cooled, dunk the doughnuts into the glaze and let the glaze set. Once the glaze sets, eat and enjoy!

    Hi Rebecca! I’m sure it could be changed to a gluten free version. If you try it with gluten free flour or baking mix, I’d love to hear the results! Happy Baking!
