Mini Baked Doughnuts

5

These adorable little doughnuts are made in the traditional way with yeast, but then baked (not fried). So easy and yet so delicious.

28
1 cup 2% milk
8-g pkg quick-rise yeast
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Glaze
3 cups icing sugar
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp sprinkles
MICROWAVE milk until warm, about 1 min. Pour into bowl of a stand mixer fitted with dough hook. Add yeast and stir. Let stand until foamy, about 10 min. SPRAY a medium bowl with oil. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment. Lightly spray with oil. ADD granulated sugar, butter, egg, vanilla and salt to yeast mixture and beat on medium until combined. Gradually add flour, increasing speed to medium-high, until dough forms a ball and pulls away cleanly from the sides and bottom of the bowl, about 7 min. (Stand mixer may move around the counter during beating.) TRANSFER dough into oiled bowl. Lightly oil top of dough and cover with a damp tea towel. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about an hour. ROLL out dough on a floured surface until 1/2-in. thick. Cut into 28 rounds using a 2-in. round cookie cutter. Then use a 1-in. round cutter to cut out holes from centre of rounds. Transfer doughnuts and holes to prepared baking sheets. Cover with damp tea towels and let stand until double in size, about 45 min. STIR icing sugar with water in a small bowl. Set aside. PREHEAT oven to 350F. Bake doughnuts in centre of oven, 1 batch at a time, until golden, about 10 min. Cool completely on a wire rack, about 10 min. STIR icing sugar mixture. Dip tops of doughnuts into glaze. Top with sprinkles before glaze dries.

Skip store-bought cans, because you can't beat the sweet, savory and smoky taste of homemade baked beans with bacon and molasses. The old-fashioned beans cook slowly in the oven for hours, developing a rich, thick sauce. Baked beans from scratch are the perfect side dish for your next cookout or potluck, and a simple lunch or dinner entrée when paired with cornbread or Boston brown bread!
