Cannabis Donuts – Three Ways!
I snagged a pair of Williams Sonoma donut pans from Goodwill for $4. Have a mentioned that I’m really into that thrifting life? We can talk about it later. They were practically new, so I had to get them and test them out right away. I’ve tried making donuts before (the fried kind), but it’s a mess and nearly impossible to keep the oil at the right temperature. On the other hand, baking donuts is so simple, I didn’t even have to whip out my electric mixer. Sounds like a winning recipe to me!
- Donut pan
For the donuts
- 2 cups flour
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 eggs lightly beaten
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 tablespoon cannabis butter melted
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter melted
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
For the cinnamon sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
For the glaze
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ tablespoon milk
- pinch salt
For the donuts
- Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease your donut pans.
- Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, combine, eggs, milk, melted butters, and vanilla extract.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined.
- Fill donut pan ¾ full (about 3 tablespoons each), and spread the batter into an even layer.
- Bake for 15-17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- To release donuts from the pan, let them cool slightly, turn pan over and beat it gently on the table. The donuts should pop right out!
- For powdered sugar donuts, add about ⅓ cup of powdered sugar into a paper lunch bag. Toss donuts in the bag one at a time until they are coated evenly with powdered sugar.
- For the cinnamon sugar donuts, melt 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together your cinnamon and sugar. Dip both sides of the donut in the butter and then both sides in the cinnamon sugar.
- For the glazed donuts, combine all ingredients and mix until smooth. Either dip one side of a donut in the glaze and turn onto a cooling rack to dry, or set on cooling rack and drizzle glaze over with a spoon.
