Easy Vanilla Baked Donuts



If you have been checking my Instagram recently, you will notice that I have been experimenting with baking donuts. I’m a huge fan of a good baked donut, but was having a hard time finding the right recipe.


I stumbled across s baked vanilla donut recipe from Deliciously Sprinkled and decided to try it out. The results were so scrumptious that I wanted to share the recipe with you. I altered the recipe by the slightest to get the perfect result.

Ingredients for Donuts:

~ 2 2/3 c all purpose flour

~ 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

~ 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

~1 tsp salt

~3/4 c granulated sugar

~ 1/2 cup milk

~1/4 c melted butter

~ 1/2 plain yogurt (I used greek non fat) or sour cream

~2 large eggs

~1/4 c vegetable oil

~2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Ingredients for Vanilla Glaze:

~ 1/2 c milk

~ 4 c powdered sugar

~ 3 teaspoons vanilla extract

~edible flowers and sugar sprinkles for decorations


Preheat oven to 425 degrees Farenheit.

Butter and flour 2 donut pans.

In large bowl, mix together dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.

In medium mixing bowl, whisk milk , yogurt/sour cream, and eggs.

Whisk in melted butter, vegetable oil and vanilla to the egg, yogurt and milk mixture.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the mixture. Stir until the ingredients are combined. Be careful not to overmix the batter (the batter will be very think).

I used a spoon and small rubber spatula  (or hands) to evenly spread the donut batter into the pans. Be careful to only fill the batter about 3/4 of the way in the pan so the donuts do not overflow.

Put the donuts in the oven for about 10-11 minutes or until the tops of the donuts are a golden brown. Let the donuts cool for another 10 mintues and drizzle vanilla glaze on donuts.

For the glaze, mix powdered sugar with milk and vanilla in small bowl. I added more milk to my mixture so it was a clear glaze, but for a thicker glaze stick to the recipe. Pour the glaze over the donuts with a spoon and imediately add flowers and sprinkles.
