Does anyone have a Recipe for Baked Donuts or Donut Holes or a Donut Recipe in general.
I searched the board but didn't see any recipes.

I don't really have time to type much tonight and have to respond to other threads as well tomorrow. However, I have a Dunkin Donuts clone recipe that my kids absolutely love, but deep fried. They like my homemade much better than Krispy Kreme, which are decent. I have made baked donuts before, but if I'm going to expend the effort, well, they must be deep fried for the delicious fatty taste.
If you want the baked recipe or the deep fried, let me know. The baked one I'll have to dig around for if I still have it.

Clone Dunk. Donut recipe:
(I'm assuming a bread machine is being used since most of us have one, set on the dough setting to mix it)
Donut Ingredients:
3/4 cup milk
2 1/2 Tb. butter or marg.
1 egg
1/3 cp. granulated sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 3/4 cps all-purpose flour
1 Tb. yeast or one packet
Enough corn oil (or whatever oil you prefer in your deep fryer)
Put in bread machine and set on dough setting.
When the dough is ready, take a small chunk of dough and pat to a small donut size, bigger if you want the holes. I have found that if you make the donuts normal size in dough, when it grows it becomes too big for cooking (assuming there's no hole). The middle doesn't get done enough and the dough is still sticky. Smaller ones work best. Place the donut on a greased cookie sheet. Repeat until all the dough is made into donuts.
Let the donuts rise for 45 minutes to an hour.
Meanwhile, heat up the cooking oil to 350 degrees in your deep fryer. I have found the corn oil produces a distinct flavor that my kids love. Carefully take a donut off the greased pan and place in the deep fryer, and keep adding donuts to fit in it. I cook 3 at a time in mine, sometimes 4. The donuts need to cook approx. 30 - 45 seconds ON EACH SIDE. Depends on your deep fryer I guess. We like ours a nice medium golden color. When finished, place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
After cooling a little, I dip our donuts in a mix of confectionery sugar and water for the glaze. Then sometimes add a little melted chocolate drizzled on top.
The original recipe for the glaze is as follows though:
5 1/3 Tb. marg. or butter
2 cups powdered sugar
Cream these two together, then add:
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cp. hot water
This recipe works just as wll for donut holes too.
Usually I make regular, no-hole glazed donuts because we like my homemade custard-style filling, which is as follows. When the donuts are cooled before glazing, I poke my finger in the side of each donut and move it around to make space for the filling. Then take a pastry bag or plastic baggy, fill it with my homemade filling, and insert the open end into the hole and squeeze the filling into the donut. Then do the glaze, and whatever else.
Custard filling recipe:
3.4 oz package of instant vanilla pudding (guess you could use chocolate too, any flavor really)
1 1/3 cup skim milk
2 envelopes Dream Whip
dash of salt.
1. Combine pudding mix with milk and beat with electric mixer on low speed for about 30 seconds.
2. Add the envelopes of Dream Whip and mix again on low speed for about 30 seconds.
3. Turn the mixer speed to high and continue beating the mixture for about 2 minutes until it's light and fluffy. Cover and chill for at least an hour.
(If you don't feel comfortable with Dream Whip, I have an alternate recipe that could work just as well using heavy whipping cream and skim milk.)
The entire family loves the donuts, more than Krispy Kreme we can get at the store, and the girls say they're better than Dunkin. I completely agree.

Hi all,
Here are some recipes I have found on the internet for Baked Doughnuts.
Baked Cinnamon applesauce Doughnuts
2 package dry yeast
5-3/4 cup all-purpose flour,divided
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup margarine,melted and divided
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)
1-1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup margarine
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
Dissolve yeast in warm water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Add 3 cups flour, applesauce, and next 6 ingredients; beat at low speed of an electric mixer until moistened. Beat at medium speed for an additional 2 minutes. Stir in 2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a well-floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic(about 5 minutes); add enough remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands. Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place, free from drafts, 1 hour or until doubled in bulk. Punch dough down, and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough to 1/2 inch thickness; cut with a lightly floured 2 1/2 inch doughnut cutter. Combine doughnut holes and any remaining scraps of dough; reroll to 1/2 inch thickness and cut as before. Place doughnuts on baking sheets coated with cooking spray; brush 2 tablespoons melted margarine over doughnuts. Let rise, uncovered, in a warm, draft-free place for 40 minutes. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon in a large zip-top heavy-duty plastic bag, and set aside. Bake doughnuts at 425 degrees for 8 minutes or until golden. Immediately brush remaining 2 tablespoons melted margarine over baked doughnuts; add doughnuts to plastic bag. Seal the bag and shake to coat.
