I just want to tell you all, I love you. I've had umpteen million of you request baked doughnut recipes rather than fried. So because I love you, I broke my cardinal rule, "Thou shall never bake doughnuts."
The fact that I broke this rule, makes me look at myself in the mirror and ask, "who is this doughnut baking freak?" I don't even recognize myself.
Now I am going to be completely honest. These things taste great, super light, tons of citrus flavor. However they are NOT doughnuts. They are nothing but ring shaped muffins. But for your sake, we will lie... and call them cake doughnuts, ok?
So I'm going to call them Muffnuts, you call them doughnuts. Deal?
Grapefruit Glazed Muffnuts (AKA Baked Grapefruit Glazed Cake Doughnuts)
2 cups of flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cups granulated sugar
2 beaten eggs
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup grapefruit juice
1 tbs grapefruit zest
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbs vegetable oil
For the glaze:
1 cup confectioners sugar
3 tbs grapefruit juice
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp grapefruit zest
1/8 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350.
In a mixing bowl combine, flour, baking powder and salt together with fork. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine sugar, eggs, vanilla, Greek yogurt, oil, milk, lemon and grapefruit juice and zest. Once combined. Mix together with your flour mixture.
Grease a doughnut pan with baking spray.
Fill each doughnut well with the batter, about 3/4 of the way full.
Bake for about 15-18 minutes, or until golden.
Allow doughnuts to cool.
Meanwhile prepare the glaze. Whisk all of the glaze ingredients together. Dip cooled doughnuts in the glaze.
Place on a drying rack to dry, sprinkle with additional citrus zest (optional).
