BAKED BIRTHDAY DONUTS

Ingredients
Birthday Donuts
  1. 1 cup (120 g) all-purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  3. 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  6. 1/4 cup (50 g) granulated sugar
  7. 1 Tablespoon (13 g) brown sugar
  8. 1/4 cup (60 ml) milk
  9. 1/4 cup (60 g) Greek yogurt plain
  10. 1 large egg
  11. 2 Tablespoons (30 g) unsalted butter, melted
  12. 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  13. 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles

Glaze
  1. 1/4 cup (60 ml) milk
  2. 2 cups (240 g) confectioners' sugar
  3. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  4. Extra sprinkles to sprinkle on top optional

Instructions
Birthday Donuts
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spray a donut pan with non-stick spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, granulated sugar and brown sugar. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the milk, yogurt, and egg together until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the melted butter and vanilla, and whisk until combined.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Do not to over mix (the batter will be thick). Fold in the sprinkles very gently so the colors don’t bleed.
  • Transfer the batter to a frosting bag with a regular tip (or into a plastic zipped-top baggie with the corner cut off) and pipe batter into each donut cup until 3/4 full. Alternatively, use a spoon to transfer batter into the donut cups.
  • Bake for 8–10 minutes or until the edges are golden. Allow the donuts to cool for two minutes in the pan and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
