Donut Ingredients
  • 1 Cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 6 Tbsp Buttermilk
  • 6 Tbsp Truvia Baking Blend
  • 1 Tbsp Melted Butter
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 3/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg
Glaze/Frosting/Topping Ingredients
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Powdered Sugar + Water for a Glaze
  • Any toppings for the donuts
For The Donuts
  1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
  2. Combine the flour, buttermilk, sugar blend, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Add in the vanilla extract and egg. Stir until wet ingredients are incorporated into the dry ingredients.
  4. Use a pastry bag or ziplock bag with the tip cut-off to pipe these into a lightly greased donut pan.
  5. Cook for 8-12 minutes, depending on your oven. Stick a toothpick in a donut and if it comes out clean, they're ready. Let cool for ten minutes.
For The Coating
  1. You can use frosting from a container, homemade frosting or a glaze for the coating on these donuts depending on your preference.
  2. If you're making the glaze, combine 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tsp water and mix thoroughly. Dip the donut in the glaze.
  3. If using frosting, spread the frosting over the donut with a bent icing knife. (Any other knife will work - an icing knife just makes it easier.)
  4. Add your desired toppings.
Recipe Notes

Add more water to the glaze if it's too thick.
Skip the coating if you're looking for something similar to a plain cake donut.
For an easy way to get the toppings to stick, place the toppings on a plate or wax paper. Coat the donut and then flip upside down and press the top into the toppings to get them to stick.
We used almonds, coconut, and peanut butter brittle for our donut toppings - but the possibilities are endless! We plan to use sprinkles, chocolate chips, and pecans in the future.
Add a little bit of food coloring to the glaze or frosting for easy holiday themed donuts that are great year round.
