Classic Baked Donuts
Donuts make me think of friday mornings. Someone is always bringing donuts to school or work on a friday. It's like a celebration of getting through another week. These donuts are the baked variety, not deep fried so your house doesn't have to smell like a grease pit and you don't have to feel as bad about eating them. I'm not claiming these are healthy, but at least a little better for you. We both know the deep fried donut version can't be beat, but these are so incredibly easy and taste amazing. Plus sprinkles make everything better.
Is it donut or doughnut? Or both? I'm confused. Going with donut, I'm a rebel.
Truth note- I have made this recipe dozens of times, but for some reason my pregnant brain decided I needed to include 1/4 cup brown sugar in this batch. However, I think they turned out better than usual so I'm sticking with it. I love happy accidents.
You do not need a mixer for these donuts and it took me about 10 minutes to make the dough. The best part is you can take this basic recipe and make so many varieties and do all kinds of different toppings. I wanted to share the classic donut today, nothing but glaze and sprinkles. Can't beat the classic.
