One of my absolute favorite stores to go to is the Home Goods Store. But what makes this store even better, is that the hubby loves it too. If you have ever been to my home, you all know he is the one with the eye for decorating. But since I am the kitchen guru, this store is always calling my name. Ever since my Pinterest obsession, is see so many things I want to make and so many gadgets that I WANT. Some that I actually went ahead and purchased for one reason or another. But this donut pan has been calling my name for quite a while. I kept telling myself, ”what do you need that pan for really?” Finally yesterday, it was calling my name loud and clear. So I broke down and bought the donut pan.
i woke up early this morning, (thank you Kona) and even before I sat down to read the paper I baked some donuts. There was a recipe that came with the pan. I made a few slight changes and now I have a new obsession.
I have to apologize to the cookie and the muffin right now, because this will be my newest obsession. I am sure I will be making many other flavors so stay tuned.
The PP value for each donut comes to 4 PP without the glaze.
- 2 cups whole wheat white flour
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin spice
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup 2% milk
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Spray the donut pan with non stick spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, pumpkin spice, cinnamon and salt. Stir in the milk, eggs, vanilla and coconut oil. Beat together until well blended. This dough will be very thick.
Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the batter into each donut cup about 3/4 full.
Bake about 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool slightly if you plan on glazing them..
To make the glaze blend 1 cup confectioner’s sugar with 2 tablespoons of hot tea. I used Stash Spiced Chai.
You can serve them hot or room temperature.
Happy 18th birthday to the twins (officially tomorrow)!
