Due to DH’s and grandkids penchant for donuts, I looked around for ones that were more generalized for those who don’t enjoy veggies in their treats.  Found this one on “skinnysweetsdaily“:

Makes 12 (2 trays)and are approx. 215 cal. each, but little fat

2 C cake flour
2/3 C sugar
2 tsp powder
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg (very important for them to really have that “donut” taste!)
3/4 tsp salt (I like using sea salt)
3/4 C buttermilk or equivalent (i.e. 2/3 C non-dairy milk with added lemon juice to make 3/4 C and then let it sit for 5 minutes)
2 lg eggs, beaten
2 tbsp. melted butter or coconut oil (I love the taste the oil gives it)

1 C powdered sugar, sifted
1 tbsp. (have a little more handy) milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla or other extract
toppings:  sprinkles, mini chocolate (or other chips), gold/silver sugar, coconut or even graham cracker crumbs  get creative everyone!

pre-heat oven to 425.  Spray donut trays with cooking spray.

In a large bowl sift all dry ingredients.
In a medium bowl, combine all wet ingredients.  With a rubber spatula-pour wet mix into dry and mix until well-blended.  Let batter rest for 3 minutes.

Fill each donut cavity with a small spoon 2/3-3/4 full.
Bake 6-9 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched.  Cook in pan on rack for 10 minutes.  Flip out and cool donuts for another 10-15 minutes.

Make the icing and drizzle over donuts (remember to put a cookie sheet under the racks!!!).

Have fun decorating and eating.  As with any donut-best when eaten the same day.

Since it’s Halloween-you could even try doing these as apple cider versions and swap the cider for the buttermilk and then coat in a cinnamon sugar topping.

Love it
