Maple Peach Donuts
The weather is turning here in Northern Nevada.
The trees are starting to change color and the evenings cool to 50 degrees.
I yearn for these long evenings and early mornings. It makes me feel like I have more time at night with my kids.
And what better way to start the day than with a taste of Fall.
These Maple Peach donuts have just a hint of peach, with a lingering maple taste.
They are the perfect pairing to a hot cup of coffee or tea.
Plus, they are ridiculously easy to make. Just the way I like it...
For the Donuts:
1 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 6 ounce container of peach yogurt
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 1/2 Tablespoons maple syrup
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat your donut pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder/soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, yogurt, vegetable oil, lemon juice, and maple syrup.
In the large bowl with the flour mixture, create a well and pour the wet ingredients into the middle.
Fold together until combine and transfer to a large piping bag.
Pipe evenly into the greased donut pan and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden in color.
Allow to cool in the pan for 1-2 minutes while you make your cinnamon sugar, by combining the cinnamon and sugar in a shallow dish, set aside and then melting the butter.
Turn out the warm donuts on to a cooling rack, and working one at a time, coat each side with the melted butter and dip into the cinnamon-sugar, coating completely.
These donuts are best enjoyed warm!
The crunch cinnamon-sugar coating makes these donuts a delicious Fall treat.
