2 Tbs. sugar
1 Tbs. ground cinnamon
2 Tbs. butter, melted
In a shallow bowl or plate, stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Dip the baked doughnut in melted butter (I used a pastry brush to apply the butter so I could get a lighter coverage) and roll in the mixture to coat.
Chocolate Glaze (John’s Favorite)
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 Tbs. melted butter
1 Tbs. corn syrup
1 tsp, hot water
In medium bowl, microwave chocolate chips, butter and corn syrup on 50% power for 1 minute, stirring frequently until completely melted. Stir in1 tsp. hot water, until the glaze is thick and smooth. Add another tsp. hot water if the glaze is too thick. Use immediately to glaze doughnuts.
Confectioners’ Sugar Doughnuts
Put 2/3 cup of confectioners’ Sugar in a resealable plastic bag. Add a doughnut, close the bag, and shake to coat. Repeat with remaining doughnuts.
My personal favorite way to eat doughnuts…
Slice plain, cinnamon or confectioners sugar doughnut in half. Lightly butter and toast until golden brown. Top with cinnamon sugar. I especially love the slightly crispy edges!
NOTES: Baked doughnuts are not like traditional doughnuts that you would get from your favorite bakery. These are not like the light, cruller kind made with yeast. I prefer a cake-like doughnut and these are similar to that type. We really liked the Wilton recipe and though I don’t know the calories, I think they must be a little less unhealthy than fried doughnuts.
