Cinnamon Glazed Baked Doughnuts! {National Doughnut Week}

The whole selling baked good for a worthy cause is not a new one. Who hasn't attended or helped out with a bake sale before? Well this week, National Doughnut Week, independent bakers are raising money for the The Children’s Trust, through the sale of doughnuts!

A local bakery, Warings, is taking part! Not only are they donating 10p per doughnut sold, but they are hosting various competitions. One contest I am going to have my Mini Baker partake in. They are asking 5-15 year-olds to design a doughnut. I am going to get my Mini Baker to enter. I think she’ll really enjoy that! To find out if your local bakery is taking part please check out the links below!!

Baking doughnuts at home is pretty easy. I think frying them is too, but I like to make them with the girls and therefore easier to bake. The recipe I used here comes from Wilton. It was on the packing of my new heart shaped doughnut pan.

Cinnamon Glazed Baked Doughnuts 
2 cups cake flour
¾ cups granulated sugar
2 tsps baking powder
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp salt
¾ cups buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tbsp butter (about 14g), melted

Preheat oven to 425F/240C grease your doughnut pan. I used melted butter and a pastry brush. Sift all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add all the other ingredients and beat until just combined.

Half fill each doughnut hole (about 2 tbsp all depending on your pan). Bake for 4-5 minutes. If you over fill, like I did, then you will need a few extra minutes. If when touched they spring back then they are done. Let cool for a few minutes before removing. Repeat until all the batter is used, then glaze…

Cinnamon Glaze
1 cup confectioners’/icing sugar
3-4 tbsp milk (add slowly)
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Combine all the ingredients until sugar is completely dissolved. Use immediately to glaze the doughnuts. I just dipped mine into the bowl and then place on a cooling rack, with parchment paper underneath, to catch the drips.

notes: Find out if your local bakery is taking part and join in the fun! - National Doughnut Week; Warings are not sponsoring this post, I have mentioned them because I do enjoy their baked goods!. I recently picked up this Wilton heart doughnut pan from Home Sense. Home Sense is like a TK Max for household items including kitchen stuff! How to Make Cake Flour
