Today is our 60th day of the Unprocessed Challenge! I guess we celebrated by making doughnuts 😆 Were we the only ones on the planet without doughnut pans? We just bought ours today, I don’t know how we lived without them! Doughnuts are so cute 🙂
So these turned out really good. I used this recipe and this recipe for guidance, which are almost the same except for a few differences. I had never heard of the idea of mixing cornstarch with regular flour to mimic cake flour so I decided to do it. I only used sugar (no honey), but also added cinnamon to my batter. I meant to use butter but forgot to put it in! I can only assume they would be even better with butter. So here is what I used:
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup kamut flour
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 cup evaporated cane juice
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- 2 eggs
- 2 T melted butter (ok no I didn’t use it but you should :lol:)
- 1 T vanilla
I put the batter in a ziploc and cut off the end to pipe it into the pans. Mine baked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes, and then I glazed them while they were still warm. For the chocolate glaze I used about 1/4 cup ground sugar, 1 tablespoon coca powder, and heavy cream to the desired texture. I left mine more like frosting. We made an orange glaze with 1/4 cup ground sugar, juice of 1/2 an orange, and the zest of an orange. The chocolate was the best!!
So there ya’ go. You can eat unprocessed and have your doughnuts too!
