These donuts are delish and perfect for any child's birthday party!
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup whole wheat flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
  • ⅓ cup fat-free milk
  • ¼ cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • a few drops of almond extract
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease the doughnut pan well. (I used Pam for baking.)
  2. Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg together in a medium mixing bowl.
  3. Whisk yogurt, milk, egg, oil and flavorings together in a separate small bowl. Combine all at once with dry ingredients and stir only until everything is moistened.
  4. Spoon batter into pastry bag or quart-size zippered plastic bag. Seal. Snip small corner of plastic bag and force dough out of hole in a fat rope that encircles each doughnut cup. Fill only ½ to ¾ full or you will lose the hole in the middle of your doughnut. Makes 12 donuts and possibly 3-4 “donut holes” in a mini cupcake pan. Bake for 9-10 minutes.
  5. If coating with candy: Melt the candy and gently dip each donut and place on a wire rack. Top with the sprinkles while the candy coating is still wet, or they won't stick to the donut. Enjoy!
