Baked pink donuts

Hey guys! It seems like it’s been forever since I’ve posted a recipe, so I decided to post these baked pink donuts that I made over spring break! So really I started out making these funfetti donuts from Sally’s baking addiction, but you were supposed to use non-bleed sprinkles to make the inside of the donuts look like funfetti… and… while I was in the middle of the recipe I realized that my sisters ate ALL of them! I tried using some other sprinkles but of course the color immediately bled out of them… causing them to be pink so I made them into baked PINK donuts instead. (instead of using red sprinkles and having them bleed you can use red food coloring) baked pink donuts-Crafts and Cupcakes .JPGThey are super cute! Yesterday was my cousins birthday so I gave her some!baked pink donuts - Crafts and Cupcakes.JPGHere’s the recipe! You will need a donut pan for this recipe! ( I showed mine in this post)

Ingredients:

For the donuts:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (to give it that bakery taste)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  Red food coloring

For the glaze:

  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Sprinkles to decorate

Directions:

For the donuts:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, and granulated sugar together in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the milk, yogurt, and egg together. Add the melted butter and vanilla, whisking until fully combined.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients mixing until just combined. Do not over mix. The batter will be very thick. Add red food coloring until you have the shade of pink you like.
  5.  Spoon batter into donut pan or place batter into a zip lock bag, cut the end off and pipe batter into donut pans filling 2/3 to 1/4 of the way full.
  6. Bake for 9-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Allow to slightly cool before glazing.

For the glaze:

  1. Combine all glaze ingredients in a saucepan over low heat. Whisk until glaze is smooth.
  2. Remove from heat and immediately begin dunking donuts or use a ladle to pour over the top of the donuts.
  3. Place each donut on a wire cooling rack on top of a baking sheet to catch extra glaze.
  4. Sprinkle with sprinkles.

Enjoy!
