New Recipe

 

Muffin Tin Doughnuts

(Makes 12 Doughnuts)

2¾  cups (13¾ ounces) all-purpose flour

1   cup (7 ounces) sugar   ¼   cup cornstarch

1   tablespoon baking powder  

1   teaspoon salt  

½   teaspoon ground nutmeg  

1   cup buttermilk  

8   tablespoons unsalted butter, melted  

2   large eggs plus 1 large yolk

Coating

1   cup sugar  

2   teaspoons ground cinnamon  

8   tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Doughnuts:

Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray 12-cup muffin tin with vegetable oil spray. Whisk flour, sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg together in bowl. Whisk buttermilk, melted butter, and eggs and yolk together in separate bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir with rubber spatula until just combined.
