A Donut Is Happiness With Sprinkles On Top

Light And Fluffy Cake Doughnuts

Prep Time: 20 Min; Cook Time: 10 Min; Ready In: 30 Min
This recipe is very quick and easy to make. These donuts are baked, not fried, so they don't have so many calories. You can mix up either a powdered sugar glaze or a chocolate icing to top these with. They can also be rolled in cinnamon and white sugar, but it doesn't stick very well. For a chocolate glaze, simply stir 1/2 cup melted chocolate chips into the glaze mixture.

For the glaze:



Step 1: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Step 2: Lightly grease a doughnut pan. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in milk, eggs, vanilla, and shortening. Beat together until well blended.

Step 3: Fill each doughnut cup approximately 3/4 full.

Step 4: Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven until doughnuts spring back when touched. Allow cooling slightly before removing from pan.

Step 5: To make the glaze, blend confectioners' sugar, hot water, and almond extract in a small bowl.

Step 6: Dip doughnuts in the glaze when serving. Serve with big glasses of milk and lots of hugs and kisses.
