Hi everyone! Have you ever heard of baked donuts? Yes, baked and not fried. Well yes, they exist and I have not gone crazy. It is one of the new recipes and booms that arise in the pastry to forget all the oil that a donut absorbs when frying.
Baked donuts are much more fluffy, keep more flavor and are super easy to make. In this case, I used a Wilton mold to bake it but you can’t even look at my homemade chocolate donuts where I teach you a trick to make them without a mold and make them perfect.
Ingredients for 12 donuts:
- 1 cup coconut or vegetable oil
- 1 cups white sugar
- 3 eggs
- lemon zest
- 1 cup of milk
- 3 cups normal flour
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt.
Preheat oven to 180º. Grease your mold with butter or release spray.
In a bowl, beat the oil, sugar and eggs. Gradually add the flour along with the yeast and the pinch of salt.
Mix until a homogeneous mass is obtained and add the milk little by little until all the liquid has been integrated and no lump is found.
When you have a soft dough add the lemon zest and the toppings you want as split fruit or chocolate.
Fill the molds with a spoon or a pastry bag to half its capacity and bake for 20 minutes or until when you prick with a stick, it comes out clean without any liquid crumbs.
Let cool and enjoy them with a simple glaze or coffee.
I hope you liked it since this recipe was very successful at home and if you want some more flavor you tell me through my social networks.
Many kisses, Soco.
