I have been wanting to make cake doughnuts for a LONG time, I just never had a fancy pan. Michaels was having an AMAZING deal a few weeks ago and I got it for 40% off! AWESOME! I now need to go back and get a second pan......waiting for another awesome deal first though.
I first found this recipe from Kristy over at Mommy Hates cooking, she adapted it from this recipe found on Fake Ginger. I decided to take both and combine and change a few things on each. The first thing I did was change the buttermilk/skim milk for what I had on hand which was 2% and I added 1/8 tsp cinnamon rather than 1/4. Next time I will skip the cinnamon all together. I then doubled the recipe.
I made the Vanilla Baked Doughnuts first and then added a few tablespoons to the left over batter to make chocolate. I preferred the Chocolate Baked Doughnuts over the Vanilla.
I found these to be very dense doughnuts and I don't know how to change that. For whatever reason the Chocolate version was not as dense as the Vanilla, which is weird to me since I used the exact same batter for both. Gotta love the science of baking! HA!
All in all these were good, just dense. I would make the Chocolate version again.
If you have a recipe you would like me to review, or just try, contact me and let me know! I am always on the lookout for yummy new recipes!
