Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease doughnut pan(s).

2. Mix together butter, oil, and half the mix, then beat together until well blended. Add eggs one at a time, scraping bottom of bowl and beating after each addition, until incorporated.

3. Add remaining dry mix alternately with milk, blending after each addition.

4. Fill wells of pan(s) two-thirds full. A large pastry bag works well here.

5. Bake doughnuts until set and browned, 12-15 minutes.

6. Cool in pan(s) for 5 minutes before turning out onto rack to cool completely. Top as desired, with glaze or shake in a bag with cinnamon-sugar or confectioners' sugar.

Tips from our Bakers

  • For an easy glaze, mix:

    • 1 cup confectioners' sugar.

    • 2 to 3 tablespoons cream.

    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

    Stir together; dip or drizzle over doughnuts.

  • For gluten-free pumpkin doughnuts: add 1½ to 2 teaspoon of your favorite pumpkin spice blend to the bag of dry ingredients. Replace the milk with ½ cup (4 ounces) of milk and ½ can (7½ oz) of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling).
  • For a dairy free version, replace the butter and milk with vegan buttery sticks and rice milk.
  • King Arthur Flour recommends the GFCO's Certified Gluten-Free Food Service Training and Management program for professional gluten-free baking instruction. For more information, please visit GFFoodService.org.
