Don't these look just like Hostess donuts?
I used the recipe that came on the back of the donut pan and I must admit that I was not thrilled with the results. I felt they were a little dry. I looked up some reviews on the internet and other people have actually used a cake mix instead of the actual donut recipe.
Here is the recipe:
2 cups cake flour, sifted
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
In a large mixing bowl, sift together cake flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. Add buttermilk, eggs and butter. Beat until the ingredients are just combined. Fill each donut cup about 2/3 full.
Then bake for 7 to 10 minutes. I only baked for 7 minutes. Let the donuts cool in the pan for a few minutes.
Once your donuts have cooled - put them one at a time in a ziplock bag filled with powdered sugar and shake vigorously.
Since my donuts were so dry - I split them in half and added lemon curd between the layered. This helped moisten the donuts.
I am going to experiment with some other recipes and I will keep you posted.
