Fluffy Cake Doughnuts
I followed the directions given by Jmyslm, the pastry chef, except that I didn't omit the cinnamon. I used Penzey's Ceylon cinnamon, which is VERY mild... "I like to add 2T. melted butter instead of shortening, omit the cinnamon in the batter, use buttermilk instead of milk and bake them at 400' for 8 to 9 minutes. Once finished, a quick dunk in melted butter and a roll in white sugar, granulated brown sugar and cinnamon (combined of course) makes a donut my customers crave."
I've tried lots of recipes for baked donuts, never finding one I considered to be worth the effort. This one is fantastic, although still not like a fried donut.
