Baked Cranberry Orange Doughnuts with Orange Vanilla Glaze

The girls made these one day while I was at school. We all loved these and will make them again.


Baked Cranberry-Orange Doughnuts with Orange-Vanilla Glaze

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream (preferably not low-fat)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (finely chopped)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tablespoon orange juice (more if needed to achieve drizzling consistency)          
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, and sugar. Stir in oil.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring just until combined. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla, orange zest and dried cranberries.
Spoon batter into a lightly greased doughnut pan, filling each cavity about 2/3 full. Bake at 350 for approximately 12 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of one of the doughnuts comes out clean. Dump doughnuts from pan immediately and cool on a wire rack. While doughnuts are cooling, prepare the glaze.
For the glaze, stir together powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and orange juice, adding the juice 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze is a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over doughnuts.
