Last week I surprised my youngest daughters with fresh donuts for breakfast.

On a school day.

Yeah, baked donuts are THAT easy! If you haven’t gotten around to trying them, maybe these juicy cherries inside a cake donut will persuade you????

Cherry Donuts (Baked) with Vanilla Glaze

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 12 donuts

Easy Cherry Donuts baked in no time with a sweet Vanilla glaze!

Ingredients

    For the Donuts:
  • 2 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup milk (I use skim)
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 15 maraschino cherries, chopped
  • For the Glaze:
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • sprinkles

Instructions

  1. In mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Mix until combined. Add in eggs, vanilla, milk and melted butter. Mix thoroughly. Fold in chopped cherries.
  2. Pour batter into a ziploc bag, snip off the corner of bag. Pipe into greased donut pans. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 10 minutes. Remove and allow to cool in pans 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
  3. For the frosting, heat cream in small saucepan until just before boiling. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla extract and powdered sugar. Add more cream (or powdered sugar) until desired consistency.
  4. To frost donut, dip cooled donut into glaze. Set on wax paper, apply sprinkles immediately (if desired), and allow to set (about 15 minutes) before eating. Enjoy!

Thank you SO much for this non-chocolate baked donut recipe! I can now bake my favorite (cherry!) and modify it for my lemon donuts! Fantastic!

I do love cherries-yum! Usually cake donuts are very basic flavors, so I am glad to see a donut batter that has more unique flavor to it! I am saving this recipe! The donut pan is on the list to get at the end of the month. Great post.

I just got a mini doughnut maker for Christmas and these are inspiring me to actually test it out! I’m a new follower and fairly new at blogging about baking. Please check out and follow my blog. I just posted a recipe for a Nutella Chocolate Glaze and now realize I could use it on doughnuts! http://bakingmemoirs.blogspot.com/2012/01/nutella-chocolate-glaze-recipe.html

I am going to attempt to make these today. Can I freeze them and frost them later?

Reply

Jenner March 16, 2013 at 3:36 pm

Absolutely. =) It’s just me, so I freeze stuff all the time, donuts freeze great.

Jenner March 16, 2013 at 3:35 pm

Made these today…. yummy…even without the glaze (I tend not to glaze unless being eaten soon). I halved the nutmeg, but it could actually go without; added some mini choc chips and some maraschino juice. =)
