Baked Mini Donuts

Today is the first day of a three day weekend. The daughter and I have an agreement that she eats whatever I make during school days and I make whatever she asks for during holidays. Most of the time it makes mt life easier though I understand I have to renegotiate this just before vacations. So today she asked for donuts and I had to bake something for this week’s theme of Baked Treats. Thankfully this worked dor both of us and we had some delicious baked donuts.

I picked the recipe from King Arthur Flour whose recipes work for me. This is a recipe with eggs though I will try and post about the eggless version soon.

Makes 12-14 mini donuts


185 gms All purpose flour

75 gms Sugar

35 gms Brown Sugar

30 gms Unsalted butter

30 gms Oil

1 egg

3/4 tsp Baking powder

Pinch of Baking soda

1/2 tsp Nutmeg

Pinch of salt

1/2 cup / 100 ml Milk


  • Preheat the oven to 230C
  • Whisk the butter, oil, sugar and brown sugar till it is a smooth mixture
  • Add the egg and whisk again till it is fully blended in
  • Add the baking powder, baking soda, salt and ground nutmeg and mix well
  • Add the flour and milk alternating between the two starting and ending with flour. It will be a thick batter
  • Grease the donut pan and pour the batter upto half of the cavity
  • Bake for 10 minutes
  • Take out the pan and let them rest for 7-8 minutes
  • Demould the donuts and cool on the wire rack
  • Add your favourite toppings
  • Enjoy!


  1. A simple topping can be icing sugar sprinkled on top of the donuts while it is warm
  2. Chocolate and nuts also are a good topping option.
