Cinnamon Vanilla Doughnuts

Heres a quick ‘n’ easy recipe for some scrumptious  Cinnamon Vanilla Doughnuts! Since we use wholewheat flour and bake them (instead of deep frying) it really is a low cal, healthy variant, yet just as  delicious with the cinnamon and vanilla  adding enough zest and flavour.

Blog owner  ( Sharon D’souza shared this recipe saying that, ‘these baked doughnuts  tasted alot like really delicious Doughcakes

Preparation time around 30 mins and serves 6 . You will need  –

2/3 cup whole wheat flour and 1/3 cup maid
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of baking soda, pinch of salt and nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1  egg, 1/3 cup  yogurt, 3 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla essence

And for the Cinnamon Sugar:

To 1/3 cup powdered sugar add one and a half spoons of cinnamon powder. Melt three large spoons of butter and set aside (you can do this just before you remove the doughnuts from the oven).

Method – 

Preheat the  oven to about 350 degrees. Spray a doughnut pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Set this bowl aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients (egg, yoghurt, milk, oil, and vanilla essence). Add this mixture to the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir, just until combined.

Now pour the batter into the pan which you have already prepared. Bake for about 15 minutes or  maybe just a little longer. Try the toothpick test. Insert one into the doughnut and if it comes out clean its done. Let the doughnuts sit for a minute and then remove from the pan.

Allow the doughnuts to cool. Dunk the doughnuts into the melted butter first and then the sugar mixture (do this when the doughnuts are still warm). Last but not least relax and enjoy your freshly baked wholewheat doughnuts with friends and family!
