Guess what I got for Christmas?  Yes, a doughnut pan!  We decided to give it a test run today!  They turned out pretty good, although Will decided he couldn’t eat his because he just wanted sprinkles — no chocolate (silly boy!). 

We used the recipe that came with the pan. 

Doughnut Recipe

2 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 cup milk

1 teaspoon salt

2 eggs (beaten)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon shortening, melted

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Lightly spray the doughnut pan with cooking oil.      

(Makes approximately 18 doughnuts — I halved the recipe this time)

In bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.



Add shortening, eggs, milk and vanilla.  Last, add the nutmeg and cinnamon.

Beat until well blended.


 Fill each doughnut hole 2/3 full.  Bake 8 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched.  Cool and remove from pan.

 This time we just frosted them with chocolate frosting (from a can) and of course added sprinkles!

Next time we may try a glaze.
