Solar-Baked Cake Doughnuts

I love shopping for bargains after the Holidays. This year, I was able to pick up two (count them, T-W-O!) special baking pans for just $1.50 each. One was a big Valentine heart-shaped cookie pan and the other was a Wilton six-cavity doughnut pan. I decided to use the recipe on the back and probably won't do it, again. Buttermilk in my doughnuts is not a favorite flavor of mine and it wasn't improved by the sun. That is, in my opinion!

However, so far as the solar baking was concerned, it worked great! The original recipe suggests a conventional oven temperature of 425°F but my doughnuts cooked fine at 300°F.
I'm up to my elbows in workshops, this spring, and so – lucky you! – this post is short and to the point!.

Solar-Baked Cake Doughnuts
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
Preheat solar over to 300°F Spray pan with non-stick cooking spray. Mix dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add liquids and beat until just combined. Fill each cavity 2/3 full.

Bake until tops of doughnuts spring back when touched, approx. 25 minutes. Let cool in pan 4-5 minutes before removing. Finish doughnuts with your favorite topping. Makes 12

Okay. Back to getting ready for next workshop – pysanki, this time!

    1. Tada! I finally figured out what happened! Had to go back into my Settings and change back from the separate window for Comments thingy. Grrr. These were good but not great! I followed the recipe on the pan and I've never cared for buttermilk in my doughs, which is a personal thing. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I really don't like doughnuts to be honest and I thought one deep fried them. At least that's what they've been doing when I've seen it. I guess these will be a bit healthier this way? :-)

    Nice to see You again :-)

    Have a great day!
