I had great fun celebrating National Doughnut Day today  with Scot Haney, guest host Kristen Taekman and the Better Connecticut crew.  We couldn’t stop eating these irresistible  Baked Doughnuts- and neither could our audience! We also had fun discussing my recent  post: Top 5 Doughnut Shops in CT. Thanks to King Arthur Flour for the great recipe and baking pans.

Recipe Summary
Hands-on time:15 mins.
Baking time:10 mins. to 12 mins.
Total time:25 mins. to 27 mins.
Yield: 6 doughnuts

1 cup Round Table Unbleached Pastry flour or 7/8 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons dried buttermilk powder
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons water


  • Whisk together all of the dry ingredients in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, oil and water (or buttermilk or yogurt) until foamy.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients all at once into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined.
  • Butter or grease the doughnut pan; non-stick pan spray works well here. Note: even though the pan is non-stick, since the doughnuts are low-fat they may stick unless you grease the pan first. Fill each doughnut form half full.
  • Bake the doughnuts in a preheated 375°F oven for 10 to 12 minutes. When done, they’ll spring back when touched lightly, and will be quite brown on the top.
  • Remove the doughnuts from the oven, remove them from the pan, and allow them to cool on rack. Glaze with icing, or coat with cinnamon-sugar or any non-melting sugar.

Tips from our bakers

  • Using pastry flour will make a more tender doughnut.
  • If you don’t have buttermilk powder on hand, substitute 2 tablespoons buttermilk or yogurt for the water.
