Easy Coffee Cake Donuts
Who doesn’t love a donut?! I have yet to encounter a person who does not enjoy one. Now making donuts…that’s another story. Making homemade donuts can be time consuming, scary (if you’re not a frying pro) and messy, and while I believe it’s worth it for the reward, baked donuts solve all those problems. Simply get your hands on a donut pan and you can bake donuts in your oven without having to fry and deal with all that oil.
These coffee cake donuts have quickly become my favorite baked donut of all time. They’re soft, tender, and moist with a buttery cinnamon streusel topping and a vanilla glaze. The batter for the donuts comes together as quickly as muffins or pancakes, so you can whip these up pretty much whenever.
Ingredients for coffee cake donuts
These coffee cake donuts consist of three parts: a tender vanilla donut, a brown sugar cinnamon streusel, and a perfectly sweet glaze. You’ll need the usual suspects like flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, etc. so I often whip these up on a whim without having to pop over to the store. Here’s everything you’ll need!
Chosen Foods Avocado Oil
Light Brown Sugar
All Purpose Flour
Our tips for making perfect baked donuts every time
I have this donut pan and it’s changed my life. Making fried donuts can be such a production, but this pan makes whipping up some baked donuts on a Sunday (or Monday) morning a pinch. Simply make your batter and transfer it to a piping bag. This will ensure you’ll get that rounded donut shape. Pipe your donuts into the greased donut pan, bake at 350° F and watch the magic happen.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray Chosen Foods Avocado Oil Spray on a standard sized donut pan and set aside
First, make the crumb topping. In a small bowl combine the melted butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Use a fork to stir together until the mixture clumps together. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, sour cream, Chosen Foods Avocado Oil, milk, and vanilla extract. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing until just combined. The mixture will be slightly lumpy and thick.
Transfer the batter into a large piping bag (you can also use a plastic bag if you don’t have one!) and cut off the tip of the piping bag to leave a ½ inch opening.
Pipe the dough into the prepared donut molds, filling 1/2 of the way to the top of the molds. Top with the crumb topping, pressing it gently into the tops of the donuts so it sticks. Bake until golden brown and the donuts sprig back to the touch, about 13 minutes. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before inverting the donuts out of the pan and transferring to a cooling rack to cool slightly.
While the donuts cool, make the vanilla glaze. In a small bowl whisk together the confectioners sugar, milk, vanilla and salt until smooth. Drizzle over the cooled donut and enjoy!
