Vanilla Yogurt Baked Donuts 3 variations

   At the top of this picture are the Chocolate Chip Toffee Bits Donuts with Sprinkles. In the middle of the picture are the vanilla donuts with vanilla frosting. The two at the bottom are crumb topped donuts with vanilla glaze.  All are made from one batch of dough! Make 6 donuts with 3 different choices or make all 6 donuts the same way. You choose because that is to hard for me to decide !                                                     

2 Cups Flour
1/3 Cup Sugar
3/4 TSP Baking Soda
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
1/4 TSP Salt
Dash of Nutmeg
1 Beaten Egg
4 TBS Melted Butter
2 TSP Vanilla
1 Cup Plain Low-Fat Yogurt
Stir all dry ingredients together except baking soda. Stir the baking soda into the buttermilk. Add all of the wet ingredients into the dry. Using a whisk stir together until you have a smooth batter with just a few lumps. Prepare your donut  pan by spraying with a baking spray. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Now for variety follow the following.
2 Vanilla Donuts just spoon two ample amounts of dough into 2 wells of your 6 well donut pan that you prepared with spray.
                                                   Vanilla Donut with Vanilla Frosting
For Crumb Topped Donuts
3 TBS Flour
2 TBS Brown Sugar
1 TBS Granulated Sugar
1 Heaping Teaspoon Shortening
Dash Cinnamon
Dash of Salt
Stir all dry together cut in shortening until you have crumbs. Place crumbs evenly in the bottom of 2 of the donut wells in your prepared donut pan.
                                              Cinnamon Crumb Topped with Vanilla Glaze
For 2 Chocolate Chip & Toffee Bits donuts after you spoon out 4 of the donuts you wish to remain the plain vanilla donuts stir into the remaining batter 2 TBS Chocolate Chips & 1 TBS Toffee Bits.
                                     Chocolate Chip Toffee Donut with Sprinkles & Frosting !
Bake the donuts at 325 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. These will be high & puffy & will spring back to the touch when done !

Frosting for Donuts:
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
3 TBS Butter Softened
1 TSP Vanilla
Dash of Salt
Just enough Milk to get a spreadable frosting
Beat butter into sugar . Add flavoring & just enough of the milk to get a spreadable frosting. Not to thin because you will frost the donuts while warm so the frosting is more of a glaze. IF you want a typical frosting just use the above frosting but frost donuts when they are completely cool!

To drizzle some glaze over the crumb topped donuts just heat the frosting in the microwave until the consistency of a thick syrup.

You may make all 6 donuts the same instead of making 3 different kinds just figure on triple the ingredients for the fillings or toppings on the crumb donuts & the chocolate chip donuts. The frosting will be enough for all 6 donuts !

  1. Just a quick thought for all of the Foodies!! IF you do not have a donut pan & do not want to invest in one, I got mine at a Restaurant Supply Store & it cost around $27.00 Walmart has them for around $11.00 but you could just bake these in a deep cupcake or muffin tin for large single cakes or small sized tins for mini cakes. You will have to carefully adjust baking times for your pans but they would be BEAUTIFUL & WONDERFUL TOO!
