Baked Cake Doughnuts

My girls bought me 2 regular donut pans and 2 mini pans for Mother's Day. We made the recipe on the back of the regular pan. These were very good and super easy to make!

Baked Cake Doughnuts

2 cups cake flour, sifted*** or 1 3/4 c flour and 1/4 c cornstarch
3/4 c sugar
2 t baking powder
1/4 t nutmeg
1 t salt
3/4 c buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 T butter, melted

Preheat oven to 425.  Spray doughnut pans with cooking spray. 

In a mixing bowl, sift together cake flour, *** sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt.  Add buttermilk, eggs and butter.  Beat until just combined.  Fill each doughnut cup about 2/3 full.

Bake 7-9 minutes or until the top of the doughnuts spring back when touched.  Let cook in pan for 4-5 minute before removing.  Finish doughnuts with chocolate glaze, cinnamon sugar, or confectioners' sugar.  Makes 12 doughnuts.

We dipped the doughnuts in melted butter and then in cinnamon sugar.  We put some doughnuts in a bag with powdered sugar and shook them well.
