except for the small plate that Rowdy snitched. (Doesn't he look innocent?)
This morning, I tried one more...and SCORE! It was delicious!!!
The texture was closest to a "DD" cake donut...fluffy and light...but without that "fried" taste. It worked beautifully in my new Donut Flexi-pan!
They were especially good after I dipped them in melted butter and cinnamon-sugar. (But then, what isn't good with butter/cinnamon-sugar?)
(Recipe is from Wilton)
2 cups cake flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 Tbsp butter, melted
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. (If using a Flexi-pan, do not spray/grease donut wells. If using a conventional pan, be sure to prep the pan)
2. Sift cake flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt together into a large mixing bowl. Stir in buttermilk, eggs, and melted butter. Mix until just combined. (Do not overmix!) Fill each donut well about 2/3 full.
3. Bake 7-9 minutes***, or until the top of the donuts spring back when touched. Cool in pan for about 3-4 minutes before removing the donuts.
4. Dip each donut into melted butter, then into cinnamon-sugar.
These donuts are best when eaten the day you prepare them!
***Using the Donut Flexi-pan, in my oven, it took about 15 minutes before the tops of the donut turned golden. Adjust your baking time according to your oven...
