It’s a New Day!

So, things changed in the Murray world quite a bit since the COVID-19 pandemic. You know, things like online learning (a.ka. home schooling) for the older two kiddies, running after and entertaining a 2 year old, preparing for a 4th bundle. This said, I am taking a break from ‘done for you’ and custom desserts until the fall. Joining the mailing list so you can be in the know about what’s coming soon. HINT; bougie decadence delivered to your front door. Yasss!

Best Baked Donuts Ever!

Making donuts from scratch may seem daunting but don’t worry, I got you.  This is an easy baked donut recipe.  For these baked donuts, it’s a matter of mixing dry ingredients and wet ingredients until combined and then baking them in donut pans. You don’t have to worry about standing over a pot of hot oil or testing its temperature.   I absolutely love that these cake donuts are made without a stand or hand mixer; just old fashion human motor muscles.  They are yummy.  You can make them your own by topping them with whatever muchies you have hanging around the house.  My favorite kind is chocolate glaze and  candied pecans.  These are a must try.  I don’t know if I will ever buy a donut from a coffee shop again….well….may be a stretch but…wanted you to know how amazing these donuts are.  Soft and moist on the inside…..soooooo good. 

 

Donuts vs. Doughnuts

What’s with the two different spellings? Donut is a simplified American spelling of the British treat doughnuts.  I always thought the yeast versions of the yummy treat are referred to as doughnuts because the process literally involves making a dough.  Well, what do I know! lol.  They taste yummy and that’s all that matters.  If you are a donut or doughnut specialist,  I apologize for this non-explanation.  I just care about how to make them, what they taste like and the happy feeling I get when I devour them.

Baked donuts (or baked doughnuts) are made from sweetened batter that is leavened with baking powder or baking soda and are cake-like.  Baked donuts are so versatile that they can be made in different shapes and can be flavoured, iced or glazed.  Yeast versions are made from sweetened dough that is leavened with yeast.  The different leavening action produce different textures.  The yeast provides more expansion resulting in a more lighter texture.  

Go ahead and whip up these baked donuts.  Your taste buds will thank you.
