Today is National Doughnut Day. I have a confession to make, I forgot, until the news came on and let me know. I then knew I had to make doughnuts. I washed the dishes, by hand. Usually I have a daydream while washing the dishes that one day I won’t know what to do with all the time I’ll have when I have a dishwasher.
I wanted to make doughnuts but didn’t want a calorie buster so I turned to Chocolate Covered Katie for something healthier and came up with these.
First start out with some flour, milk, and an egg. I have another confession, Katie says to mix all the dry and wet ingredients separately, I did not do that. I combined them at the beginning. I know what you’re thinking, you live on the edge and you’re right I do.
Add a little sugar to the mix.
Sea Salt, that’s why it looks dirty. I promise I don’t use dirty salt.
I used regular canola oil in mine, I know not that healthy but they’re doughnuts they can’t be all healthy.
Mix it all together. Katie said that you could form the doughnuts with your hands so that’s what I planned on doing. Then I mixed it all together and realized . . .
There was no way I could mold that with my hands.
I turned to the muffin pan and used that. If you have a doughnut form pan, you rock and I recommend using that. If you don’t have one, you can settle for a muffin pan. I’m telling you, living on the edge.
Katie used a banana glaze for her doughnuts. Bananas will not come near these doughnut muffins, I turned to the poor man’s frosting for the glaze. What’s the poor man’s frosting? Milk and powered sugar. That’s it.
I couldn’t handle waiting any longer and took a bite. These are the best doughnut muffin’s I’ve ever had. Cake like I have to admit.
I had to add some sprinkles just for National Doughnut Day.
