Baked Donut Monday: Whole Wheat Donuts with Browned Butter Glaze

Happy Monday everyone!!!
I'm back again for another Baked Donut Monday post
and today I'm going to tell you about some super tasty
WHOLE WHEAT DONUTS
WITH BROWNED BUTTER GLAZE!

Yes, the name of these donuts is a mouthful.
But man oh man are they soooo good!
They may not look too exciting,
but the taste is just amazing!

The Goods:
Whole Wheat Flour
Sugar
Baking Powder
Ground Nutmeg
Ground Cinnamon
Salt
Milk*
Vinegar*
Eggs
Vanilla Extract
Butter
Powdered Sugar
Milk

*Take a quick look to see how to make homemade buttermilk

In a large mixing bowl, combine the following:
flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt.
Set aside.

In another mixing bowl, combine the following:
buttermilk, eggs and melted butter. 

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients...

and mix with a rubber spatula until fully combined.

Transfer donut batter to a large zipper bag.

Cut off the end of the zipper bag 
and fill your greased donut pan until 1/2 to 3/4 full.

Bake at 325 degrees for about 10 minutes.
You can test that they're done with a toothpick.

Cool in the pan for a few minutes.

Remove from pan and finish cooling on wire rack.

Of course the donut pin had to make an appearance again!
Right Becky? :)

While donuts finish cooling, it's time to make the browned butter glaze!

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over low heat until it's browned.

It will take 8 to 10 minutes and will smell nutty when it's ready.
Watch it carefully, because it's VERY easy to go from browned to burnt!

Pour the butter into a bowl, leaving most of the sediment in the pan.

Whisk in the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla and whisk until glaze is smooth.

Dip the top of each donut into the glaze...

And return to wire rack to let glaze set up.


Take a bite to taste test them....and then try not to eat them all!
