Baked Doughnuts

I've always wanted to make doughnuts but frying just was not my thing then I found this recipe and tried it out. My family just cannot keep out of the kitchen when I make them, they disappear as quickly as they come out of the oven. It's a wonderful treat to have with a coffee or hot chocolate.

How to Make Baked Doughnuts


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet, or doughnut baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon and flour. Mix buttermilk, eggs, honey and butter and apple sauce in a separate medium bowl, and stir into the dry ingredients. Spoon the mixture onto the prepared pan in doughnut shapes. I highly suggest you get a doughnut baking pan it is easier and less messy.
