Winter White Peppermint Baked Doughnuts




A snowy morning seemed a good time to make some fun, snow inspired, baked doughnuts. I am having so much fun with my doughnut pan and there are so many recipes with unique or seasonal flavors to try. And, the best thing about making your own doughnuts at home, is that I can control the ingredients and sugar content if I wish. These have icing made with powdered sugar, but I could easily leave that off if I choose and I always use Truvia when I bake to lower the suger amount.

The icing has a hint of peppermint extract, perfect for the winter season and the white sprinkles give these doughnuts a sophisticated, yet fun touch. I have seen snowflake sprinkles at the store and they would be even more fun and whimsical. I'm having one with my coffee this morning, but they would also pair perfectly with a mug of hot chocolate for a fun winter treat. If you don't have a doughnut pan, you don't know what you are missing :-)

Happy Friday!


Winter White Peppermint Baked Doughnuts


For Batter

2 cups flour

3/4 cup sugar (I used Truvia)

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup milk

1/4 tsp lemon juice

2 beaten eggs

2 T melted butter


For Icing

2 cups powdered sugar

3 T milk

1/4 tsp peppermint extract


White sprinkles


Add lemon juice to milk (makes buttermilk). Spray doughnut pan with cooking spray. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Add beaten eggs, milk and melted butter. Mix until just combined. Fill each ring (6) of doughnut pan to top, leaving center hole open. Bake at 425 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until tops spring back when pressed. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes then remove and place on wire rack. In a small bowl that will allow doughnuts to be dipped, combine icing ingredients and stir until smooth. Dip the tops of doughnuts in icing and sprinkle with decorations one at a time. Enjoy!

  1. These look delicious! I never baked with Truvia, is it a one for one swap with sugar? Might give this a try, thanks for the tip.

  2. Yummy! If I were a coffee drinker, I could so see myself enjoying these delicious pastries, but alas! I'll have to enjoy them with my Diet Coke instead! Have a great weekend!

  3. Yummy!! I love the photo I've seen a few times of a donut called a big cheerio!

  4. I think I just ruined my diet by looking at those beautiful doughnuts!
