Peach Donuts with White Chocolate Glaze (made with Chobani!)

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.

Recipe

Prep time: 10 minutes | Bake time: 20 minutes | Total time: Approximately 45 minutes (with cooling and glazing)

Yield: 8-10 donuts

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

Glaze

  • 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.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this…because it’s so funny.. I’ve been wanting to make donuts too. I’ve seen the baking pans, and have passed them by, because I thought that it might end up being one of those things that go on my cupboard shelf to collect dust. ..But now, you’ve piqued my interest. I may have to run to Target at lunch to pick up what I need to make these tonight! I’m the only one in the house that likes peaches tho…I’m wondering how these would be with blueberries..or raspberries…

  2. These look so good! I have been wanting to try donuts for a while now, guess I better jump on the bandwagon. And this glaze would be good on so many donuts, pumpkin is really standing out to me. Is it fall yet?

  3. I’ve never made donuts cos I do not like frying them either – this recipe – these baked donuts – look so fantabulous!

  4. I bought a donut pan about six months ago and STILL haven’t used it! It’s kind of shameful. I really need to just get in the kitchen and get baking!

    Loooveee that these are peach infused! My favorite summer flavor!

  5. The donuts look great! Will we see anything as good at Basin Harbor? Enjoyed our dinner the other night. Thanks for your help with ordering my doormat. Love you, Nana
