Sure thing! Here’s a simple recipe for baked doughnuts that you can whip up midweek:

Baked Doughnuts Recipe

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk (or 1/2 cup milk mixed with 1/2 tablespoon vinegar, let sit for 5 mins)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Optional Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk or water
  • Sprinkles or toppings of your choice


  • Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a doughnut pan with non-stick spray or butter.
  • Mix Dry Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Combine Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk (or milk and vinegar mixture), egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
  • Combine mixture: Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Don’t overmix; a few lumps will do.
  • Fill Doughnut Pan: Transfer the batter into a piping bag or a zip-top bag with the corner cut off. Pipe the batter evenly into the prepared doughnut pan, filling each mold about 2/3 full.
  • Bake: Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the doughnuts spring back when lightly touched.
  • Cool: Allow the doughnuts to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Optional Glaze: If desired, mix powdered sugar and milk or water in a bowl until smooth. Dip cooled donuts into glaze and return to rack… Add sprinkles or your preferred toppings while the glaze is still wet.

Enjoy: Let the glaze set for a few minutes, and then your midweek baked doughnuts are ready to be enjoyed!

Feel free to adjust the spices or toppings to suit your taste preferences. These baked doughnuts are a delightful treat that won’t take up too much time during your busy week!
