Sugar Free Baked Doughnuts

It's been ages since I updated my blog...yeah I do have lotsa excuses but not gonna waste my time telling you about long awaited kitchen was finally completed and I have already done some cooking and baking but just today I remembered hey, it's time to update my blog...lols...

I found this recipe online some time ago but been sitting on it for so long and finally I had some time to do some baking. I did improvise the recipe a little to fit my liking to make it completely healthy and edible for both my hubby and my furkids...yes I have furkids now. I have sparkle and casper but I'll tell the story of casper on another day.

Dry ingredients :

2 cups of all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder / soda bicarbonate
1 tsp salt I put a little less since I was gonna share it with the furkids
1/4 sugar (optional) I didn't use any sugar

I sifted all dry ingredients together in my mixing bowl, sifting is crucial this will avoid all the tiny little lumps.

Wet ingredients :

3/4 cup milk I used Low Fat Milk
2 eggs or 1 is enough
1 tsp Vanilla Essence
1 tbsp Honey - I used honey instead of sugar
1 tbsp of melted butter or canola oil or you can go without if u want to

Mix all the wet ingredients bowl and beat lightly

In your mixer pour in the wet ingredients slowly as you beat them, the batter will come somewhat thick and sticky well that means the soda worked well with the ingredients.

The batter is just nice for my 12 hole doughnut tray, it'll be easier to use a piping bag to fill the tray and I only realized I should have used it when I was half way done. At this point I preheated the oven to 180 degrees while I finish filling the rest of the tray.

My doughnuts in the making, I can actually see my reflection on the this point I have 3 hungry restless creatures in the house that can't wait to see what's gonna come out of the oven.

It only took about 15 to 20 minutes to finish baking or was it sooner? Hmm...I didn't time myself but I took it out when I saw it was nice golden brown...oh the smell is wonderful...I could actually smell the honey.

I glazed honey over the hot doughnuts and sprinkled some cinnamon on them...oh they look and smell yummy but I wasn't sure about the taste. This is my first time making it and all this while doughnut is made out of dough and is fried. This is our first healthy baked doughnut with pancake batter mixture style.

The texture inside is totally different well..duh...obviously. The taste is so much different it's definitely nothing like that fattening sinful doughnuts you get from dunkins or big apple or even krispy kreme. This would be an acquired taste. It's so crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. Some sort like a burnt muffin.

I cut a few pieces for my dear furkids and they enjoyed it. The comment from my hubby was just "nice" with a sad face. Who likes healthy food anyways they are not as yummy as those "killing me softly" kinda food. Perhaps, I should try again this time with the usual doughnut recipe but instead of frying I should bake it.

I was thinking of adding walnuts in the batter earlier for some reason I must've forgotten oh well, there's always a next time!!
