Baked doughnuts (with dulce de leche frosting)
While browsing a cooking stuff shop (I could spend hours in there), I bought a doughnut baking pan. That was just the right thing! Jé immediately took to it, as have I. You might want to try the following recipe (adapted from Joy the Baker [1,2], who in turn adapted it from somewhere else…)
Doughnuts (makes 6 baked doughnuts) (adapted from Joy the Baker)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- a pinch of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or vanilla sugar (the German way…)
Heat oven to 350 degrees F/180 C. Grease a doughnut pan.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and sugar.
Melt butter until it begins to brown. Transfer to a small bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk, and vanilla. Add brown butter, and whisk.
Dump the wet ingredients all at once to the dry ingredients. Stir together with a wooden spoon until well combined.
Distribute the batter across the doughnut pan. Bake in oven for about 8 minutes. Remove and let cool.
Dulce de Leche Buttercream Frosting
- 3/4 cups unsalted butter, softened
- 1.5 Tablespoons heavy cream
- 0.5 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups powdered sugar

- 3/8 cup dulce de leche
