Well, I did it. I went down the rabbit hole and I don’t think there is any coming back.
You guys, I made donuts. At home. In my itsy-bitsy kitchen. Life will never be the same.
I’ve been wanting to try donuts forever. But I’m kind of resistant to frying things and going out and buying a donut pan just seemed like an ordeal (right??). But those sentiments obviously didn’t last long. I am now the proud owner of a donut pan and can bake up donuts whenever I please.
And these donuts were fab. They were soft, flavorful and completely delicious. The peaches studding the batter added little bursts of summer, and the white chocolate glaze on top was a perfect compliment. I loved that these donuts were baked, not fried, to make them just a smidge healthier. AND. AND. They’re made with Chobani! And you know how I feel about things made with Chobani. Instantly healthy. #justaddgood. It’s a thing.
I can’t wait to try more donut flavors. I’m thinking something outrageous next time. Yup, I’ve definitely gone down the donut rabbit hole and there is no turning back.
Prep time: 10 minutes | Bake time: 20 minutes | Total time: Approximately 45 minutes (with cooling and glazing)
Yield: 8-10 donuts
- 2 cups flour
- ¾ cups granulated sugar
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp almond extract
- ¾ cup Chobani Greek Yogurt
- 1 tbs water
- 2 peaches, skin and core removed, diced
- ½ cup white chocolate chips
- 2 tbs heavy cream
- 1 cup confectioners sugar
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
Preheat oven to 325ºF. Grease a donut pan and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add the eggs, vanilla and almond extracts and mix well. Finally, add in the yogurt and water and mix well. Fold in the peaches. Scoop the batter in to the donut pan, filling the molds about 3/4 of the way full. Place in oven and bake for approximately 18- 20 minutes until a tooth pick inserted into the donuts comes out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes then turn donuts out on to a wire rack and let cool until the donuts are easy to handle.
While the donuts are cooling, make the glaze. In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate chips together with the heavy cream until no lumps remain. Remove from heat and add in the confectioners sugar. Dip the donuts in to the glaze and set on a wire rack to let glaze harden just a little bit. Then engulf your delicious creations.
