These Browned Butter Glazed Baked Doughnuts is a simple recipe that can be easily made with some simple ingredients you may already have in your home The Browned Butter Glaze gives the doughnuts a delicious sweet and nutty coating.
Lately, I’ve been trying to make recipes using what I have in my home to avoid going out in public too much due to the “shelter-in-place” regulations. So that means I’m trying to get really creative and combine ingredients you never thought you would make something delicious for my family. Fortunately, some of the common household ingredients that most of us keep in our homes on a regular basis such as flour, eggs, milk, sugar, and butter, can be combined to make some basic recipes such as Pancakes, Homemade Bread, Funnel Cakes, and, yes, baked doughnuts.
How to make Baked Doughnuts?
One of the best things I love about making baked doughnuts is that it’s less clean and you don’t have to wait for the yeast to rise, twice, to make homemade doughnuts. All you need to make these doughnuts a reality is a baked doughnut pan, which is relatively inexpensive. You place all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl, pour the batter in a pan, and bake. That’s it! Because this recipe is so basic (thanks to Martha Stewart), you can add whatever coating or topping you want. You can toss these doughnuts in:
- powdered sugar
- drizzle in chocolate ganache
- cinnamon and sugar
- or even frosting
How long to brown butter?
Making browned butter is simple but you have to be careful not to brown the butter too much. So the question remains, how long do you cook the butter until it is browned properly? Well, on medium heat, you add your butter (don’t leave the butter) and you will start to see the brown seem to boil and the butter will begin to brown after that point.
