Surprise your Sweetheart with fresh baked vanilla donuts for breakfast. This Valentine’s Day Baked Donut Recipe is perfect for your special someone!
Vanilla Baked Donuts
I’ve had issues with some baked donuts that were dense and dry. These Baked Vanilla Donuts are super soft and moist. My new favorite Baked Donut Recipe, for sure!
So in all honesty . . . I couldn’t care less about Valentine’s day. But any excuse to eat more donuts and I am on board!
Especially these donuts.
Have you bought your Donut Pan yet? I love mine and use it on a regular basis. Plus I’m too lazy to fry up doughnuts, so baked donuts are perfect for me.
I adapted this recipe from The Skinny Fork – Skinny Vanilla Bean Donuts. These are a little less skinny . . . just a little.
I had planned on adding food coloring to the donut batter so that the donuts would be pink and the glaze white. But, while I was making these I had 3 kiddos running and yelling through the house. So I got distracted. Is Christmas vacation over yet!?!
No worries though, I added a drop of red coloring to the glaze for a light pink color. Feel free to add more color or none at all. Or color the donuts like I had intended.
However you decide to make your donuts, this is sure to be a family favorite baked donut recipe!
