Baked Doughnuts Three Ways Recipe | King Arthur Flour and Polly’s Version

This recipe is the best one I’ve ever made and my version is healthier than the original mainly because I just keep healthy ingredients around my house as a matter of course.

I substituted the Earth Balance Vegan Spread for the butter, and used grapeseed oil in place of the oil called for the recipe. I used Whole Foods Market 365 organic unbleached all-purpose flour and I didn’t have any whole eggs on hand and so I used the equivalent in egg whites and it came out great using 6 tablespoons egg whites to be exact.

They also sell just egg whites in your dairy section right next to the egg substitute. That way, you’re not wondering what to do with all those egg yolks when you bake up an angel food cake or want the leavening power of egg whites.

I buy the egg substitute and the only egg whites and then I can add it as I want to recipes and it has the advantage of being easy to transport.

I baked up six of them and I’m going to store the batter for the other six for another time when they’re guaranteed to be fresh.

I can have the leftover batter in my fridge or even freeze it and then just put it out on the counter overnight, and then it’ll be ready to bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes the next day.

I found this recipe by talking into my Galaxy Note 4 Phablet and using the Vocal Search application. King Arthur Flour’s base recipe is the best, most moist baked donut I’ve ever had.

You can also add icing to this I used a combination of confectioner’s sugar cinnamon and freshly grated nutmeg on mine.

More pictures will be added once I get them water marked.

  • 1/4 cup Earth Balance vegan spread room temperature, and also 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil or canola oil. I used grapeseed oil and she has tons of vitamin e in it.
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs or 6 tablespoons egg whites
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • up to one teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • confectioner’s sugar to sprinkle on and cinnamon to sprinkle on after baking
  • 1 cup milk of your choice I used nonfat milk but you can use whatever you want
  1. Simply mix all the ingredients together either by hand or with your KitchenAid mixer or other sturdy mixer until well blended and bake for 10 minutes at 425 degrees.
  2. I used Baker’s Joy baking spray to spray in the pan and it made it so easy for the donuts to come out of the pan
  3. I used the professional quality silicone spatula to scrape all of the batter from the bowl.
  4. you can flavor this basic go a bunch of different ways, so use your imagination.
