Baked Maple & Powdered Sugar Donuts

Since it's the weekend (almost), you need donuts.
and since they are baked, you can indulge yourself!
You could just have one.
Or make some minis so you can eat several :-)

The other Saturday, my son woke up and said "mommy, will you make me some donuts?"  And since I can't resist my sweet little boy's adorable face. I said, "absolutely!"
and look how happy he is!

Baked Maple Cinnamon Donuts adapted from Cooking with my Kid
(my changes are in italics)
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
Ener-g Egg Replacer or 1 egg (lightly beaten)
6 oz non fat plain yogurt
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 1/2 tablespoons real maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat  oven to 400 degrees. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. In separate bowl, mix oil, lemon juice, maple syrup, *egg, yogurt & vanilla. Add wet ingredients to dry and  fold together just until combined. Spray a donut pan (I'm sure a mini muffin pan would work as well) and divide batter evenly. I used a regular sized Wilton donut pan, and a mini donut pan - it made 6 regular and 9 mini's.  Bake for approx 10 minutes or until golden brown (for regular size pan), about 7 for mini. Allow to cool on a cooling rack.  Top with desired glaze, powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. Or chocolate ;-)

We used Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer mixed with powdered sugar and a pinch of pumpkin pie spice to make a glaze for some of the donuts, and dipped others in plain powdered sugar. Yep, Hostess may be history, but Sweet Sixteen's can live on in your very own kitchen!

Have a great weekend!
