Coffee Donuts

These baked donuts combine the best of both worlds in one bite. The intense coffee flavor is infused in a denser, cake-like donut made with Greek yogurt. The glaze hardens and adds a delicious coffee flavor that lingers in your mouth.

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons strong coffee*

Ingredients – Glaze
1 cup confectioners sugar
4 teaspoons strong coffee*

Preheat your oven to 350°F and spray donut pans with non-stick spray. Whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl and set aside.

In a separate bowl, mix together the egg, brown sugar, milk, and yogurt. Add the coffee and the butter and whisk to combine. Pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until just combined.

Transfer the dough into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip (this will create the ridges on the donut). This dough is a little thicker, so make sure to use a larger tip to make it easier to pipe. Pipe the filling into the pans and bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack.

While the donuts are cooling, prepare the glaze by mixing together the sugar and strong coffee. Dip the tops of the cooled donuts into the glaze and let them rest on a parchment-lined tray to harden and create a shell.

Makes 18 donuts.

Note: Use a strong coffee like espresso or greek coffee that has been drained through a paper towel and sieve to remove the grainy bits.
