Best-Ever Baked Donuts

Baked Donuts -
Park Feierbach

Who doesn't love a good donut? This baked variety is just as satisfying as the fried version, but SO much lighter. We can't resist a good chocolate glaze, but these would also be delicious rolled in cinnamon sugar, churro-style.

Made them? Let us know how it went in the comment section below!

Pinch of nutmeg (optional)

2 tbsp.

2 tbsp.

vegetable oil

2 tsp.

  1. Preheat oven to 400° and grease two donut pans. In a large bowl, whisk to combine flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and nutmeg if using.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk to combine eggs, sugars, 1/2 cup milk, sour cream, butter, vegetable oil, and vanilla until smooth. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and fold until just combined. (Some lumps are OK!)
  3. Using a piping bag or resealable plastic bag, pipe batter into donut pan, filling each well about 3/4 of the way full.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the tops appear dry and the undersides are golden. Let cool 5 minutes before turning out.
  5. Meanwhile, combine chocolate chips and remaining 1/4 cup milk in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at half power in 30-second increments, stirring after each round, until chocolate is completely melted.
  6. Dip or spread donuts with frosting, then add sprinkles. Let chocolate set 10 minutes before serving.
