    Brown Butter Glazed Cinnamon Doughnuts!

    When looking for something delicious and festive to bake for Valentine’s Day, I came across a few recipes for doughnuts. After looking them over, I easily decided that doughnuts were a must!

    Additionally, I saw some adorable sprinkles on Amazon and I knew they would be the perfect!

    I love to refer to doughnuts as “little circles of heaven”, mainly because…they totally are. These in particular have a soft, moist, and cake like consistency. The browned butter glaze then takes the overall taste to another level with it’s delicious sweet and rich flavor.

    This recipe is very easy. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool before glazing and digging in. Luckily, I have one break when I was taking them out of the pan to cool, so my husband and I got an early treat. I mean, throwing it away was completely out of the question ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope you enjoy!

    Cook Time 10-12 minutes
    Servings
    dozen
    Ingredients
    Doughnut Batter
    For the Glaze
    Instructions
    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and lightly grease your doughnut pans (set aside).
    2. First, in a medium bowl, whisk together your dry ingredients. Flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
    3. In another medium bowl, with a spoon or spatula, mix together your wet ingredients. Milk, egg, butter, vanilla extract.
    4. Then, pour your wet mixture into your dry mixture, and mix until combined
    5. Next, using an uncut piping bag, place the piping bag into a tall container or tumbler. Depending on the size of your bag, you may be able to pour all of your batter into the pag (or half at a time). Once filled, cut the tip off of the piping bag and fill the doughnut pans (recommended to make 1 full circle in each (try to not double as they will double in size in the oven).
    6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. They are done when the doughnut bounces back with a finger touch test.
    7. Once done, immediately remove from the pan and place on a cooling rack
    8. At this point, you may need to refill your piping back and get your second batch. If not, wait till the doughnuts are completely cooled before glazing.
    9. For the glaze, whisk together melted (and browned) butter, milk, vanilla extract and powdered sugar.
    10. Lastly, taking the cooled doughnuts in your hand, dip them top first into the glaze until the glaze fully covers the top of the doughnut. Slowly turn back over and place them on the rack to set. Optional (after you dip, add your choice of sprinkle or decoration)
