I'M ALIVE!!!!! Alright, I suck. My blogging has been less the stellar this past week, probably because there hasn't been any, but hey! This week was the longest one in the world (aka: first full week back to school) summer will do that too ya! Darn you. Last weekend, let this serve as a TBT (and a throwback monday and tuesday and wednesday) I made donuts (doughnuts?) with my new donut pans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! These donuts are heavy! They taste like a cake!
recipe adapted from cooking classy!
2 2/3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup & 2 tbsp sugar
1 vanilla bean seed
2 large eggs
3 tbsp vanilla extract
1 cup o milk
Oven @ 425
Butter Donut pan!
In a green bowl; mix flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In an orange bowl; blend butter, oil, sugar, and vanilla bean seeds with a mixer until smooth for 1 minute. Then add in the eggs and vanilla extract. Once that is done, you're going to alternate adding half flour and half milk until there is none left.
Now comes the hard part of placing the dough into the pans. I put the dough into a ziploc and cut off the corner. That worked wayyyyyy better then using two spoons.
Bake for 8 minutes or until cooked. I'd say golden but I'd be lying. vvvvv
Remove from the pan and place on cooling rack to cool and then frost.
1 cup powdered sugar
3 tbsp melted butter
2 tsp vanilla
pinch o salt
2 tbsp milk
food coloring if you feel like it. my mom says orange donut frosting freaks her out. who knew?!
Mix this all together in a flat bottomed bowl that is microwave friendly. Once the donuts cooled, you're going to dunk them in the frosting which will need to be heated frequently because it hardens and won't stick. If you're using sprinkles, add them right after you do the frosting because they don't stick once the frosting has hardened.
