Baked Buttermilk Doughnuts

My six year old niece has been requesting me to make doughnut ever since she saw that I purchased a doughnut pan a couple of months ago.  She helped me with another post, Doughnut Muffins but she still wanted doughnuts and wants pink ones, meaning strawberry.

This post I have three helper, my niece and my two nephews. They all love doughnuts, there is somewhat "tradition", when they go to the store they get a doughnut. I as well love doughnuts but they don't love me back.
Hestya 2 Piece Silicon Pan
I purchased this pan back in June, it is Hestya Silicon Doughnut Pan with 6 cavities and it comes with a pack of 2 letting you making a dozen doughnuts at a time. There are made from food grade silicon, BPA-Free, dishwasher safe, oven safe, and microwave safe.
Today, I am making two different kinds of buttermilk doughnuts with the same cake doughnut base. Vanilla and Chocolate.

Makes about 24 doughnuts

3 cups Unbleached All Purpose Flour, sifted (I used King Arthur Flour)
1 cup Dairy-Free Buttermilk (recipe below) or can use regular Buttermilk
2 cups Sugar
1 1/2 cups Canola Oil, any unflavored oil could work
2 Large Eggs, room temperature
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract, I used Homemade
3 to 4 Vanilla Bean, split and scraped
6 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, optional
Nonstick spray

Dairy-Free Buttermilk
1 cup Unsweetened Almondmilk or any dairy-free milk
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

Vanilla Glaze
1 to 2 cups Powder Sugar, sifted
2 to 3 Tablespoons Milk, I used Almond Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Pinch of Salt

Strawberry Glaze
1 to 2 cups Powder Sugar, sifted
5 Thawed Frozen Strawberries
Pinch of Salt

In a large bowl, combine oil, sugar, baking soda and baking powder. Whisk together. Add flour to oil mixture one cup at a time, then add buttermilk and eggs. Split and scrape vanilla bean and add to the batter. Divide batter into half. Add cocoa powder and chips to one of the batters.

Cover and chill for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour batter into a two ziplock bags. Spray pans with nonstick spray. If you are using silicon pans, place pans onto cookie sheets. Squeeze batter into each mold a 1/2 way full.

Bake for 15  minutes, rotating the pan after 10 minutes then baking for another 5 minutes. Stick toothpick for doneness, if the toothpick comes out clean they are done.

Let the doughnut cool in the pan on a wired rack for 20 minutes. Release from molds and let them cool on the same wired racks completely before glazing.
Sift powder into two different bowls. Mash thawed strawberries with mesh strainer until all the juice is out of the strawberries, it will equal out to be 2 to 3 tablespoons of juice. Whisk together and set aside. Add milk to the other powder sugar and whisk together.

Dip doughnuts into glaze and set back onto wired rack. Let the glaze set for at least 30 minutes before consuming. Store in a dry place.

  2. This looks so yummy! I'll give them a go! Thanks for the recipe!

  3. These look really tasty! Especially the glazed ones! I've always wanted to try making donuts but haven't ventured into that neck of the baking world just yet!

  4. These look really good! I bought a doughnut pan a few years ago because of all the good doughnut recipes I saw on Pinterest. I'll have to try this one!

Chubby Hubby Cookies

I was inspired to make these cookies from a famous ice cream from Vermont with the same name. The ice cream has vanilla malt ice cream with peanut butter and fudge covered pretzels with a fudge and peanut butter swirl, yum.
I've seen other recipes on the internet of recipes for truffles or bars with the name of the ice cream and would have either peanut butter or caramel but never had the malt in it.

Malt is used for beer in the brewing process. It is usually made from barley. It is a sweet and creamy flavor, you might know it from a candy called Whoppers, chocolate covered malted milk balls.
This is malted vanilla cookie with peanut butter chips, milk chocolate chips, crushed pretzels with a peanut butter and chocolate drizzle.

The longer you chill the cookie dough the better and keep the cookie dough cold before baking.
Room temperature butter and eggs will mix better. For room temperature eggs, take out of the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes bef…

Doughnut Muffins

I for-one love doughnuts but they don't love me. Where I live we really don't have an amazing doughnut shop that's within a 20 mile radius and don't run out before I wake up (I normally wake up when a lot of doughnut shops close).
I've seen doughnut muffins around the internet and on my favorite cooking shows but I could never find them around so as usual I had to make them. Last month I went onto Amazon to do a little shopping for some cooking supplies like a new muffin pan and some other fun stuff. So I got a new muffin or cupcake pan that said it was King Size. When I saw the pan I didn't think it was going to be that big but when I received I was pleasantly surprised. (Click on the link below)
Wilton 6-Cup King Size Muffin Pan To me it didn't look that big until I received it. They do not joke around when they say its KING size. Its about twice the size of a regular muffin pan.

Slow Cooker Louisiana White Beans and Rice

I grew up eating this dish since I was born and raised in Louisiana. Typically you might hear of red beans and rice with Andouille sausage, which is traditionally eaten on Mondays using soaked red kidney beans, cooked with a ham hake, Creole seasonings, bay leafs, and sausage added in or topped servings over cooked rice. 
White beans are also called Great Northern Beans, not to be confused with  Navy Beans, they are bigger but smaller than Cannellini beans or White Kidney Beans.
Together its a complete protein, relatively cheap maybe $10 for a whole pot of beans, rice and sausage and can be GLUTEN-FREE. Also can last for multiple meals.
Please note I used a 7 quart Slow Cooker, so the cooking times might be different for each slow cooker.

Serving: 2 to 3 Meals

White Beans Soak
2 pound package Dried Great Northern Beans
6 Bay Leaves
1 Tablespoon Sea Salt
5 to 6 Cups water

Go through the beans and take out any ones that look bad.
Line slower cooker with liners, add white beans…
