Donuts or Doughnuts?

23 Mar

Well whatever they are called I like them! I have given up with my fight with fried foods so every time I am offered a donut I sigh and say no thank you. This week has been very trying so I was very happy when there was a box waiting for me at home yesterday. What was in the box you ask? A donut pan! There also was a workout dvd in there too but I will tell you about that later….

 The first recipe I tried came out very ‘doughy’. The recipe below came out better.

Baked gingerbread donuts with a brown sugar glaze

adapted from

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup applesauce

1 tsp soy milk (or whatever milk you have)

2 tbsp butter (melted)

1 cup unbleached AP flour

3/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp each of cloves and nutmeg

1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine brown sugar, egg, applesauce, milk and butter together. Add dry ingredients.

Pour batter into the donut pan evenly. This recipe made 6 donuts.


2 tbsp butter

1/4 c brown sugar

1 tbsp soy milk

1/2 cup powdered sugar

Melt the butter and brown sugar in a small pan over medium heat. After boiling for 2 minutes add the tbsp of milk. Once the mixture has been brought back up to a boil – add in the powdered sugar. If it is too thick add another tbsp of milk. Be careful dipping the donuts into the glaze, it is very hot.
