How to Make Delicious Old-Fashioned Donuts in the Oven
These old-fashioned cake donuts are dotted with fresh blueberries and dusted with powdered sugar. They’re mini-sized, made with Greek yogurt instead of butter or oil, and baked in the oven instead of fried — which leaves you with no excuse not to indulge.
Trying to make your own donuts the traditional way can be a headache. (Which is why we usually just run out in our pajamas pick up a dozen at the donut shop.) But this baked donut recipe is so much easier and less messy — no yeast, no waiting for dough to rise, no deep frying, no frosting dripping all over the counter.
All you need is a your oven and a mini donut pan. The light sprinkling of powdered sugar gives them just the right amount of sweetness, but you could also whip up your own icing if you want to make these a bit more indulgent.
They’ve got all of that yummy donutiness you crave with your cup of coffee, but with those real blueberries and nonfat Greek yogurt, you don’t have to wait for a cheat day to eat these healthier baked donuts.
In fact, don’t even wait for the weekend to bake up a fresh batch!
