Description

Soft and fluffy baked vanilla donuts with a pop of fresh berries and covered in a vanilla glaze!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour*
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup*
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed well
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp oil (vegetable, avocado or grapeseed)
  • 3/4 cup mixed berries, fresh*

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 12 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and spray a donut pan with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together both flours, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  3. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, maple syrup, egg and mashed banana until smooth. Gently add the wet ingredients to the dry, stirring until just combined. Fold in the berries carefully.
  4. Scrape the batter into a piping bag or large Ziploc bag with the end cut off, and fill each cavity until 2/3 full. 
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the donuts spring back lightly when poked. Allow the donuts to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before removing them and cooling completely on a wire rack while you prepare the glaze. 
  6. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract until smooth. Add more cream or powdered sugar to achieve your desired consistency. Dip the donuts, one by one into the shallow bowl and set back on the rack to allow the glaze to slightly harden.*

Donuts are best served immediately, but will keep in an airtight container for 2-3 days at room temperature. If the room is warm, the glaze will seep into the donuts.


Notes

  1. You could use 1 cup all-purpose flour but I would not recommend using only whole wheat flour
  2. Maple syrup could be substituted with agave syrup or honey
  3. Frozen berries may be used – do not thaw beforehand. Use small frozen berries to ensure they’re cooked through
  4. To make the pink coloured drizzle, set aside a small amount of glaze before dipping and add a drop of red food colouring. Once the donuts have all been dipped in the glaze, use a fork to drizzle the pink icing on top.
