Donuts aren't the most nutritious food to eat...but they sure are delicious! That's why I love this baked funfetti donuts recipe. It's not "healthy", but it's not as bad as your typical deep-fried variety. I love making these with the kids when I have a craving for something sweet and I promise you'll love them too!  Watch my latest video to see how to make them now:

  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • ¼ cup milk (any)
  • ¼ cup plain yogurt (regular, Greek, or any fat %)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ cup sprinkles

FOR THE GLAZE

  • 2 Tablespoons milk (any)

3. Transfer batter to a large zip top bag, snip the corner off, and pipe batter evenly into donut wells, filling them ⅔ to ¾ full. You may also use a spoon.

4. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges just start to brown. Cool completely on a wire rack before dipping in glaze.

FOR THE GLAZE

1. Combine ingredients in a small saucepan over low heat and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and dunk donuts into glaze one by one. Transfer to wire rack over a baking sheet or wax paper to catch glaze drippings.

2. Dunk donuts a second time with remaining glaze. Decorate with more sprinkles, if desired.
