Baked Mini Cake Doughnuts with Maple Glaze {Recipe} (1)

On my recent trip to the Wilton headquarters (which included a mini shopping spree at the annual Wilton tent sale) I picked up two mini doughnut pans. I usually try to steer clear of “one use” pans, but they werejust too cute to pass up! And I love mini desserts so much I think I’ll find plenty of reasons to make good use of my new pans. In fact, just this week a friend called to see if I could help bring some doughnuts to church on Sunday as a special “Doughnuts for Dads” after church treat (in celebration of Father’s Day). Of course I canbring doughnuts… and I’ll make them myself!

The Wilton pan comes with a recipe right on it, so I thought that would be a good place to start. I gave it a practice run and I’m quite happy with it. I will be experimenting with other recipes as time goes on, but this was a nice starting point.

~ Baked Mini Cake Doughnuts ~

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup buttermilk (or 1/2 cup milk plus 1 teaspoon white vinegar, mixed and set aside)

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 1/2 Tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat oven to 425*F. Spray mini doughnut pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, sift together (or stir with a whisk), flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

Add buttermilk, egg, and butter and stir until just combined.

Scoop batter into a large ziplock style bag, or large piping bag and snip off the tip to fill doughnut pan.

Fill each doughnut cup approximately 1/3- 1/2full.The batter will rise quite a bit during baking.

Bake 4-6 minutes or until the top of the doughnuts springback when touched.

Cool in pan1-2minutes,then transfer to a cooling rack.

Makes 36 mini doughnuts.

    Just made these with a normal-sized doughnut pan- it made 8. They’re cooling right now, will glaze them later, but I tried one that broke (forgot to grease the pan on the first batch, the rest came out ok with a little coaxing from a small spatula, but one broke on the way out) and it was very nice. I don’t have maple extract, going to do almond. For future reference, do you think it would work with maple syrup? I’m not sure the texture would be right for a glaze.
