Gryffin and I found out that they were as fun to make as they were to eat!
I think next time I will add more cinnamon to the batter and not forget the vanilla. Oops!
please excuse the Christmas sprinkles, it was all we had.Baked Doughnuts
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon shortening
Preheat oven to 325 and spray doughnut pans with non-stick spray. I'm sure a mini muffin pan would work too. In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients and on medium add in the rest. Beat until combined. Pour into pans until they are 3/4 full. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the top springs back when poked. Let cool about 5 minutes in pan, then remove to a rack. When cooled either spread with icing and sprinkles or whip up a glaze of powdered sugar, milk & vanilla.
I'm going to freeze some so I can find out if they thaw out OK, but I better do this now before they're all gone!
