Old Fashioned Doughnuts (Baked)

Ingredients

1 C All-purpose flour
1/4 C Whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/3 C unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 C buttermilk

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Spray a 6-well doughnut pan with cooking spray
  • In a large bowl, whisk or sift together the flours, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt
  • In a separate bowl, combine the oil, sugar, apple sauce, and vanilla and mix until well combined
  • Add the wet ingredients and buttermilk to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined (batter will be very thick and sticky)
  • Spoon batter into a piping bag
  • Pipe into prepared doughnut pan, smoothing out the doughnut batter as necessary
  • Bake at 350°F for 12 – 15 minutes
  • Cool in pan about 2 minutes
  • Cool completely on a wire rack

If desired, dip hot doughnuts in melted butter and then in granulated sugar for a sugar topping

This Old Fashioned Doughnut is for nutmeg lovers!   It’s so good plain or dipped in sugar and perfect with a cup of coffee.  Being baked, it’s also not as heavy tasting as a regular fried doughnut.  I hope you enjoy it!

God bless!
