Baked Vanilla Donuts with Jam

May 5, 2016 / 38 Comments

Hello Guys! I finally bought donut pans, of which I was dreaming since I moved to New York City.This city is now officially in the golden age of donuts, which definitely dethroned cupcakes. I really wanted to have baked ones though, which are definitely the way to go to slash the fat and calories.
These Baked Vanilla Donuts are super quick and easy to make.
I decided to make them even more desirable by turning them into a jam sandwiches. They were amazing! Disappeared in a second!

I know..聽It’s been a while, I’m sorry. I had an extremely busy time at NYU, and was working really hard on my projects.

  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
